Pain Management Q & A

What types of pain do you treat?

People experience pain in different ways, and the pain itself can range in intensity from dull to severe, and it can be local or radiating. To classify and treat pain, the LaSante Health Center team tries to pinpoint pain by its intensity, duration, and location. 

The first determination they make is whether your pain is acute or chronic:

  • Acute pain: comes on suddenly from injury or a health condition
  • Chronic pain: persists for three months or longer

The LaSante Health Center team also tries to identify whether your pain is musculoskeletal or neuropathic:

  • Musculoskeletal: affects bones, joints, and muscles 
  • Neuropathic: affects the nerves

What causes pain?

Either an injury, inflammation, or a medical condition causes pain. Some of the leading causes of pain include:

  • Pinched nerves
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Myofascial pain syndrome

What are my options for pain management?

The team at LaSante Health Center takes a holistic, multimodal treatment approach for pain, incorporating the most effective treatments for relief. Treatment plans may include self-care, physical therapy, medication, and injections.


Relaxation techniques provide incredible benefits for those with pain. Although they don’t necessarily reduce pain, they improve your reaction to it and enhance your quality of life. 

Warm baths and heating pads also help you relax and improve blood flow to the affected area. It’s vital to rest pained areas while they’re healing, too.

Physical therapy

Your provider may prescribe rehabilitation exercises to help improve strength and flexibility in weakened muscles and reduce pain in the process. They can also help you modify your physical activity around any injuries, so you don’t have to stop exercising when you’re hurt.


Pain-relieving, anti-inflammatory, and muscle-relaxing medications provide adequate pain relief for many people. Your LaSante Health Center provider can help you identify the best course of medication for your pain.


At LaSante Health Center, the team offers nerve blocks and steroid injections for nerve and joint pain. Injections usually provide enough pain relief for you to perform rehabilitation exercises while your injury heals.
