Fall is a lovely time of year, but it’s also a formula for neck and back injuries. The weather starts to cool, our muscles start to tense and strenuous yard work ensues.
Raking leaves is a great workout, but it can also be an intense and repetitive activity. Many people experience back and neck or shoulder pain after raking leaves and completing yard work. In many cases, this pain is temporary and will go away on its own, but in some instances, you may have sustained an injury that might require further attention.
It’s important not to ignore the signs your body is giving you, as addressing back and neck or joint pain is very important.
Our facility has experienced physicians that can diagnose, evaluate and treat your pain. We offer non-surgical procedures that isolate and treat pain, offering safe alternatives to surgery and opioids.
Fast Track Program
At Susquehanna Valley Pain Management, we offer a 16-week fast track program that provides you with the care and knowledge needed to start relieving your pain and improving your functionality. This program takes a multidisciplinary approach, getting the right people on board to help you get relief when experiencing new acute pain syndrome. If you are experiencing back, neck, joint, muscle, tendon or nerve pain our physicians are here to help determine the best course of action to take and set you on a path to pain relief. A key benefit of this program is not only to help you with your pain but to prevent chronic pain and associated sequels.
Joint and Spinal Interventions
As our physicians work through the program with you they may recommend interventions such as injections to provide you with pain relief. These injections include comprehensive spinal and joint injections that are prescribed for your specific needs. Using the latest advancements, the injection is administered directly to the location causing the pain.
Once you are feeling better, it is important to exercise to help alleviate future injuries. Our providers can suggest simple, easy to follow exercises to strengthen the injured area.
If you or someone you know may have been injured this fall season and is experiencing pain we encourage you and your loved ones to reach out and begin taking steps toward pain management.
