At Colorado Pain Relief, not only do we monitor your pain medications, we also specialize in a comprehensive approach to pain management. Here are a few of the steps we take to ensure the best care for our patients:
We monitor your blood work to make sure the medications are not adversely affecting your internal organs
We use Central Nervous System testing to monitor motor skills and other neuro-cognitive functions to optimize dosing of medications
We offer trigger point injections to reduce muscle spasms and reduce pain
We offer deep joint injections of arthritic and injured joints of the knees, shoulders, SI joints, hips, and smaller joints as well. All under the guidance of ultrasound. This helps reduce inflammation and decreases pain.
We monitor testosterone levels in our male patients. Taking pain medications it can lower a males testosterone levels significantly. This can cause depression, low sex drive, weakness, and fatigue making pain symptoms worse. If this occurs, we can offer hormone replacement therapy if levels are too low.
