Some back and neck injuries can be treated solely through chiropractic care and physical therapy. In the case of more acute and chronic pain, it’s often necessary to rely on the expertise of a medical doctor that specializes in pain management. That’s yet another service that Colorado Injury Center provides for its patients.
We rely on accurate diagnosis and careful assessment when it comes to determining the exact type and severity of a back or neck injury. Through a combination of x-rays, Digital Motion X-Rays, and/or MRIs, we are able to pinpoint the issue while proving pain relief to our patient.
Our specialized team regularly treats and helps control a broad spectrum of pain caused by back injury, neck injury, headaches, herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, similar complications arising from auto accidents, and more.
At Colorado Injury Center, it’s our belief that managing pain is an important part of the medical care that we provide. When pain is well-controlled, it allows patients to be more active, more easily carry out their activities of daily living, and generally live a better life. As advanced as modern medicine is, most pain – regardless of type and severity – can be managed. It’s a relief that our doctors are committed to giving our patients in need.
Pain management is rarely a first option in the treatment of back injuries, but it’s necessary in severe circumstances. At Colorado Injury Center, our medical doctor works hand-in-hand with other physicians in the office to establish that everyone’s on the same page with regard to treatment plans, and to ensure that there’s never a breakdown in communication. It’s paramount that a pain management doctor understands all facets of a patient’s care, which is why we feel it’s so important to have one on-site at Colorado Injury Center rather than at another facility.
