September serves as Pain Awareness Month, the American Chronic Pain Association’s effort to bring awareness to pain and pain management.
Joint and body pain is something we all experience at some point, but not necessarily something we actually seek medical care for. When confronted with pain, many choose to ignore the warning signs and push through, even when putting off treatment could mean more serious consequences. This pain can stem from the neck, back, joints, headaches, and more.
Hudson Regional Hospital provides several examination and treatment options for those with chronic pain, accessible to all in Hudson County and beyond, from athletes with acute injuries to aging in adults with painful degenerative conditions.
The goal of pain management is to minimize your pain as much as possible, improving function and increasing your quality of life. Hudson Regional Hospital’s pain management program focuses on non-surgical techniques to alleviate chronic pain, including electrodiagnostic testing, regenerative joint therapies, injections, and more. Hudson Regional Hospital also houses two spine & orthopedic practices that offer pain management, among other services, Hudson Orthopedic Pain and Spine, and the North American Spine & Pain Institute.
Hudson Physical Therapy
Physical therapy is another non-invasive discipline that works to maintain, develop, and restore maximum physical function and mobility. This is an effective treatment option for a broad range of orthopedic conditions, sports-related injuries, and other muscle, bone, and joint conditions. Hudson Regional Hospital recently opened a brand new, state-of-the-art physical therapy facility, Hudson Physical Therapy. At Hudson Physical Therapy, our licensed physical therapists use the right combination of exercises and therapies, including therapeutic exercise to improve strength and mobility, electrical stimulation to to decrease pain signals coming from the body to the brain, massage therapy to improve muscular blood flow and relieve tightness, and more. The practice also offers chiropractic care and acupuncture, which can assist in chronic pain healing.
