What is pain management therapy?

Pain management therapy is an individualized approach to controlling and minimizing debilitating chronic pain to drastically improve your quality of life. 

Depending on the nature and severity of your pain and your personal history, pain management therapy can utilize a wide range of tools, such as medication, therapy, exercise, or injections. Often, pain management specialists design plans that utilize one of these or a combination.

Who needs pain management therapy?

Anyone can benefit from pain management therapy, which can provide life-changing relief to individuals suffering from acute or chronic pain. Some of the most common sources of chronic pain are:

  • Back injuries
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Joint injuries
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Nerve damage
  • Endometriosis
  • Headaches 

Regardless of its source, if pain affects your quality of life, you may be a good candidate for pain management therapy.

What are some examples of pain management?

Pain is highly diverse. Fortunately, there are many methods by which League Health Urgent & Primary Care can help you manage it. Common examples of pain management techniques include:


The team may recommend therapeutic exercises like yoga, tai chi, swimming, or walking to ease chronic pain and correct poor posture.


Alone or in conjunction with other therapies, the team may prescribe anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve swelling and ease pain.

Joint injections

Joint injections typically consist of a local anesthetic mixed with a corticosteroid. Your team injects the medicine into the painful area, where the corticosteroid decreases inflammation, and the anesthetic numbs the pain.

Ketamine IV infusions

Traditionally used as an anesthetic, ketamine can also help treat chronic pain related to conditions like fibromyalgia, neuropathic pain, and complex regional pain syndrome. It blocks pain receptors in the brain and spinal cord, potentially reducing inflammation and increasing blood flow.

EPAT (Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology)

EPAT is a type of acoustic pressure wave therapy. It delivers high-energy acoustic sound waves into the body via a non-invasive handheld device, penetrating the tissue to stimulate the metabolism, increase blood circulation, accelerate tissue and bone regeneration, relieve pain, and provide healing.

EPAT can relieve many types of pain, including pain related to plantar fasciitis, scar tissue, frozen shoulder, and stress fractures.
