Top Pain Management Specialists
Dr. Roy Nini understands that pain can have a debilitating impact on a person’s life. For pain management in Los Angeles, we take a multidisciplinary approach at Full Range Ortho, incorporating interventional and other techniques to treat a range of acute and chronic pain conditions. We tailor a treatment plan for each individual patient to achieve healing as well as profound pain relief.
Custom-Tailored Pain Management
Pain management is not a “cookie cutter” process. Dr. Nini believes that each patient should have an individually-tailored treatment plan based on a variety of factors, including the type and location of the injury and the patient’s anatomy and lifestyle.
Rather than masking painful symptoms, we recommend a course of treatment, custom-tailored to the individual, to achieve healing and long-term relief from pain.
Interventional Treatments in Sports Medicine
We focus on non-operative treatments for acute and chronic pain. This is known as interventional pain management. Dr. Nini & Lee can tailor a non-surgical treatment plan, utilizing a combination of techniques to reduce or terminate your pain and restore range of motion and function. Their approaches and skill has made them the some of the leaders in pain management Los Angeles has to offer.
Pain Treatment to Fit You
Treatment varies from patient to patient. Your treatment plan will depend on several factors, including the severity of the injury and what combination of the following is involved:
Areas of the Body We Treat
We offer pain management in Los Angeles for a wide variety of injuries, including sprains, strains, and fractures of the:
- Upper Back
- Lower Back
Pain Management Treatments
Depending on the nature and severity of the injury, a variety non-operative treatments are available for pain management.
Peripheral Joint Injections
Steroids injected into a painful, swollen joint can significantly reduce inflammation and relieve pain. In many cases, a local anesthetic is injected along with the steroid medication for immediate, temporary pain relief. A steroid injection typically brings relief from inflammation and pain within 1 to 2 days, with results that can last up to several months.
Peripheral joint injections are used to treat joints in various areas of the body, including the:
Hyaluronic Acid Injections
Also known as viscosupplementation, this technique involves injecting hyaluronic acid into the joint of the knee.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that acts as a shock absorber and lubricant and allows the bones to move over each other smoothly.
BOTOX is a popular cosmetic treatment. It is also FDA-approved for treating muscles spasms and migraines. BOTOX works by blocking the signal from the nerve to the muscle, causing the muscle to relax.
Selective Nerve Blocks
Nerve block injections provide temporary relief from pain of the arm, back, or leg that follows a single nerve’s path. With this technique, patients generally need several repeat treatments within a year.
Injections of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can relieve pain and inflammation and bring significant improvement to patients with musculoskeletal disorders or injuries. PRP is rich in growth factors (substances that stimulate growth in living cells). It promotes healing when injected into the site of the injury, thereby reducing pain.
Another benefit of PRP is that it comes from your own body, so there is no risk of rejection. PRP is plasma with a higher concentration of platelets that is created from your own blood.
Physical therapy and non-operative treatments are a much better option for treating most cases of chronic pain than pharmacology and opiates, as stated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
At Full Range Ortho, we will include physical therapy and rehabilitation as appropriate in your custom-tailored treatment program which is why we have one of the most comprehensive programs for pain management Los Angeles has available.
Stem Cell Therapy
Depending on your injury or condition, Dr. Nini may include stem cell therapy in your pain management treatment program. Stem cells are currently used to treat a range of sports injuries, including injuries to muscles, ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Stem cells may be injected into the affected area to promote healing and help relieve pain.
Treatment with stem cells can help reduce inflammation, often a significant factor in chronic pain. Stem cell therapy may be autologous (in which stem cells are collected from the patient’s body fat) or nonautologous (using stem cells from umbilical cord tissue).
