Depending on the severity of post-surgery pain you experience, your Lynx Healthcare provider might recommend:
Rest, ice, compression, elevation, and over-the-counter pain relievers might be all you need to relieve post-surgery pain.
Taking pain-relieving medications can help you feel comfortable after surgery. The Lynx Healthcare team offers opioid therapy management to help you avoid pain medicine addiction.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)
PRP, derived from your blood, contains growth factors that accelerate your body’s healing response naturally. Your doctor takes a blood sample from your arm, spins it in a centrifuge, and injects PRP into painful areas of your body.
After surgery, undergoing physical therapy is a natural way to reduce pain, strengthen muscle and joint tissue, and prevent future injuries.
Other pain-relieving options
If post-surgery pain persists longer than you anticipate, your pain management specialist might recommend steroid, hyaluronic or anesthetic injections, radiofrequency ablation, or spinal cord stimulation.
They make adjustments to your pain management treatment as needed to optimize your outcome and quality of life.
