Hormone Replacement Therapy

Hormone replacement therapy can help stabilize your hormones.

Managing pain is a uniquely individual experience. What brings relief to one person might not be effective for another, highlighting the importance of careful medication management. This process requires patience, ongoing assessment, and clear communication with your healthcare provider. Understanding your prescribed medications, following dosage instructions diligently, and regularly discussing their effects with your provider are essential steps. Regular in-person visits are crucial for effective medication management, ensuring the best possible outcomes in pain relief.

Medical marijuana has gained recognition for its potential in pain management, particularly for conditions like chronic pain, neuropathic pain, and certain types of cancer-related pain. Its active compounds, such as THC and CBD, interact with the body’s endocannabinoid system to help alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.

Nerve blocks serve two main purposes:


Temporarily controlling pain by interrupting the pain signal from a specific nerve or spinal nerve root before it reaches the brain.


As a diagnostic tool to identify the nerves responsible for pain.

While nerve blocks can benefit many patients, they are just one part of a comprehensive pain treatment plan. They are often used alongside therapies like physical and exercise therapy. Nerve blocks can create an opportunity for effective rehabilitation, aiding patients in returning to normal function.

Physical therapy plays a crucial role in managing pain, especially chronic pain. It focuses on restoring mobility, strength, and flexibility, which can alleviate pain and improve overall function. Through targeted exercises, manual techniques, and education on proper body mechanics, physical therapy helps individuals manage their pain more effectively and regain a better quality of life.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, developed in the 1970s, has gained widespread use in recent years for athletes, pain management, and various medical procedures. This treatment involves drawing a patient’s blood, enhancing its healing capacity, and injecting it back into the injured area. PRP accelerates healing for injuries like sprains, chronic tendinitis, osteoarthritis, nerve pain, and aids in post-surgery recovery.

Spinal cord stimulation is similar to peripheral nerve stimulation but involves delivering electronic impulses directly to the spinal cord instead of peripheral nerves. The permanent implantation process is more complex than with peripheral neuromodulation, which also comes with a slightly higher risk of complications.

Granite State Pain Associates treats a wide range of back pain causes, including cervical and lumbar spine disorders, herniated discs, sciatica, and osteoarthritis. We focus on non-operative approaches like physical therapy and lifestyle changes to restore patients’ normal activities without heavy medication use. If symptoms persist, we may recommend interventional spine care (injections) for targeted relief and improved quality of life through minimally invasive procedures under IV sedation.

Trigger points are areas of soft tissue, often muscles, that when touched, reproduce the patient’s pain sensation. These points can be palpable, especially when a muscle is contracted. Treatment typically involves injecting a local anesthetic like Novocaine or occasionally using Botox (botulinum toxin) to relieve the pain.

Viscosupplementation is an injection of hyaluronate, a lubricating gel-like substance, into the knee joint. This supplements the natural synovial fluid, which lubricates and cushions the knee during movement. Arthritic knees often have reduced hyaluronate levels, leading to less effective lubrication and shock absorption, causing pain, stiffness, and worsening osteoarthritis symptoms.
