How is musculoskeletal pain diagnosed and treated?
Musculoskeletal pain and disorders can be treated by a number of different medical technique.
Diagnosing musculoskeletal pain requires a licensed, certified physician.
At Nona, we begin by reviewing your medical history, looking for possible causes of your pain (labor intensive work conditions, sports, repetitive motions, bad sleep positions, aging, etc.)
Finally, we may request X-rays, blood tests, CT scans or MRIs, to know the physical extent of that pain.
Once the cause of your pain has been identified, we will go through treatment options available to you.
For acute pain, physical therapy, exercise programs, analgesics (such as acetaminophen), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and injections are all possibilities.
For those patients suffering from more severe pain, regenerative medicine treatments may be a great option.
There are a number of cell based options that can greatly reduce or eliminate the pain by addressing the root of the pain. (where it does stem from).
