Post-Surgical Pain Q & A

What does post-surgical pain feel like?

Post-surgical pain can present as a variety of symptoms. You might experience:

  • Dull, aching pain
  • Shooting discomfort
  • Sharp pain
  • Numbness
  • Burning
  • Tingling

Most of the time post-surgical pain is short-lived and goes away as your body heals. Lynx Healthcare offers numerous pain-relieving solutions to optimize your comfort after surgery.

Am I a candidate for post-surgical pain management?

Anytime you experience uncomfortable or long-lasting pain, you’re a candidate for pain management at Lynx Healthcare. To find out which solution is right for you, the team asks questions about your symptoms, medical history, and prior surgery. 

They also complete a physical exam and might recommend you undergo blood tests, nerve tests, or imaging procedures to get an accurate diagnosis.

What are post-surgical pain treatment options?

To diminish your post-surgical pain and optimize comfort, Lynx Healthcare might recommend:

Home remedies

Things you can do at home after surgery to minimize discomfort include icing the affected area, elevation, compression, and getting plenty of rest. Taking over-the-counter pain relievers can also help.

Prescription medications

Lynx Healthcare offers prescription medications you can take for a short time to reduce post-surgical pain until your body heals. They also offer opioid therapy management to decrease your risk of opioid dependency.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

PRP contains components from your blood that are rich in growth factors, which stimulate cell regeneration and your body’s natural ability to heal itself. After taking a blood sample from your arm and spinning it in a centrifuge, the team injects PRP into specific tissues. 

Physical therapy

Physical therapy can help strengthen and stretch targeted areas to optimize healing and reduce your risk of reinjury after surgery.

Additional pain relief options

Other post-surgical pain relief options the team at Lynx Healthcare might recommend include anesthetic injections, steroid injections, hyaluronic acid injections, spinal cord stimulation, and radiofrequency ablation. 

The team personalizes pain management solutions just for you and can make adjustments to your treatment plan as needed.
