What are 4 key points in pain management? How are they implemented at The How Clinic Encinitas?

  • Assessment: During your initial evaluation, a thorough assessment of your pain is performed. It is crucial for our providers to understand its nature, intensity, location, and impact on daily functioning. The assessment involves using pain scales, interviews, medical history review, and musculoskeletal diagnostic ultrasound.
  • Multimodal Approach: Pain management often requires a multimodal approach, combining various interventions to achieve optimal results. Together with one of our pain management specialists, a variety of treatment options will be presented and discussed. Interventions can include but are not limited to minimally invasive nerve hydrodissection injections, trigger point injections, PRP injections, regenerative orthobiologic injections, acupuncture and massage therapy.
  • Individualization: Everyone experiences pain differently, and treatment plans discussed at our clinic consider factors such as the patient’s age, medical history, underlying conditions, lifestyle, and goals. Tailoring the approach to each of our patients helps optimize pain relief while minimizing potential side effects or complications.
  • Regular Monitoring and Adjustments: Pain management is an ongoing process that requires regular monitoring and adjustments as needed. We follow-up with all of our patients to assess the effectiveness of the treatment plan, identify any changes in pain intensity or quality, and make appropriate modifications. Monitoring may involve tracking pain levels, functionality, side effects, and quality of life. Adjustments to the treatment plan may include additional therapies, or referral to specialists when necessary.
