Integrative Pain Management at St. John’s

Jackson Hole Pain Management Services

When suffering from pain it’s difficult to think of anything other than the pain itself. Chronic pains make it very difficult to live day-to-day, and far too many people try to push through the pain without realizing there are things you can do to treat it.

Regenerative medicine

Regenerative medicine helps repair and replace damaged cells and tissues caused by trauma, disease, wear and tear, or congenital issues. At St. John’s Integrative Pain Clinic, we offer PRP (plasma-rich platelet) therapy and stem cell injections, which help trigger the body to heal itself. PRP uses a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing process. Stem cells can be manipulated into specialized cells to help repair the diseased or injured area. These two interventions are often not covered by insurance, but many patients find them therapeutic and beneficial.

Will Pain Go Away on Its Own?

For small issues, pain will often go away on its own after a brief period, but there are some conditions where pain can last for weeks, months, or even a lifetime. Although it may start as a minor annoyance, eventually pain can grow to unbearable proportions. If your pain has lasted more than a week without relief, we encourage you to seek out pain management services at St. John’s Health. You will need to get a referral from your primary care provider, surgeon, or specialist. We consider self-referrals on a case-by-case basis.

Pain management treatment may include:

  • Physical therapyUnder the supervision of a medical professional, participants learn exercises and stretches designed to facilitate a faster recovery from injury or surgery.
  • Medication – Pain medication is very carefully prescribed by a pain management specialist so that patients can find relief without becoming addicted to painkillers. Medication rarely acts as a permanent solution, so it is important to keep up your other treatments while taking the drug.
  • Counseling – Research has shown that a positive attitude can help you heal. Stress puts a lot of pressure on your body and makes it more difficult to relax. Pain management counseling aims to help participants manage stress and reduce anxiety.

St. John’s Integrative Pain Clinic will work with your referring provider and medical care team to coordinate your care, and help improve your overall quality of life. To learn more call 307.739.HURT (4878).
