Without professional assistance, chronic conditions and acute injuries can mean long-term discomfort.
At Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance, we understand the importance of orthopedic pain management so you can enjoy life and the activities you love.
In some instances, pain management may include various injections directly into the source of pain. We offer a range of injections, such as steroid, viscosupplementation (hyaluronic acid gel), and more. Our patient-centered mindset means we optimize our pain management plans based on your unique needs.
Our board-certified, fellowship-trained physicians and surgeons are highly experienced.
In fact, many are considered among the top orthopedic providers in the Midwest. Along with our physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and support staff, Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance physicians deliver the utmost level of dedicated care across a range of subspecialties.
We’ve worked hard to build Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance with all the benefits of a large orthopedic collective, while maintaining the community impact and familiarity of an intimate, private-practice model.
Whether you suffer from joint, muscle, or nerve pain, our board-certified physicians and specialists strive to provide the best orthopedic pain management in Kansas City.
For Any Condition. For Every Body.
What We Treat
How It Works
The process begins with an initial appointment, and the length varies based on your condition.
More complex issues will require more time with your physician, especially if you have multiple musculoskeletal conditions.
Our patient-centric approach means we conduct individualized tests and studies based on your physical examination. Tests may include:
- Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI)
- Digital X-Ray
- Electromyograms (EMG) & Nerve Conduction Studies
- And Other Medical Technologies
After receiving your test result, we have the insight needed to build your personal pain management plan focused on your lifestyle needs and goals.
We believe pain management isn’t simply a one-and-done treatment process. Rather, we are dedicated to providing effective solutions that evolve with you.
For many patients, long-lasting pain management doesn’t involve surgical intervention.
In fact, more invasive procedures are typically our last resort.
With our experienced physicians, high-quality technology, and by utilizing advanced techniques, we help our patients control, reduce, or eliminate pain altogether.
How It Works
The best pain management plans typically include a referral to a physical or occupational therapist to help regain range of motion, decrease pain, and increase strength in the affected area. The human body adapts and heals through movement, especially when guided by a trained musculoskeletal expert.
Your physician may recommend over-the-counter or prescription medications to reduce pain, muscle spasm, inflammation, and more. This will depend on your specific needs, symptoms, and other factors surrounding your condition.
Injections directly into the joint or painful area can help with acute pain. Based on your condition, response to treatment, and your physician’s recommendations, additional injections may be necessary. Kansas City Orthopedic Alliance offers ultrasound-guided injections to visualize the area of concern in real time and optimize your treatment’s effectiveness.
