Easing the Pain

Chronic pain can be a crippling condition that interferes with your social life and robs you of your ability to earn a living. Luckily, pain management services at Texas Health Arlington Memorial Hospital offer the services necessary to help keep pain under control and get you back to as much of a normal life as possible.

From troublesome back pain to nagging arthritis, chronic pain conditions can make daily activities virtually impossible. Simply bending over to tie your shoes or turning a doorknob may be accompanied by grimaces and groans. However, with the right pain management techniques, your chronic pain can be effectively controlled or relieved.

At Texas Health Arlington Memorial, pain management techniques are available to give you the upper hand on your aches. The physicians on the medical staff of the hospital offer some of the latest advances in pain management, including:

• Injection therapy

• Intrathecal pumps

• Physical therapy

• Spinal cord stimulators

“Pain medicine services do not just involve pain medication; many other treatment options are available,” says Andrew J. Cottingham, M.D., pain management physician on the medical staff at Texas Health Arlington Memorial. “Patients tell me they would have come in sooner if they had known there were options for patients with non-severe pain or physical dysfunction. We are here to help and will work to find a solution for your pain.”
