Behcet’s disease, a chronic condition characterized by inflammation of blood vessels, can lead to various symptoms, including pain and discomfort. While there is no cure for Behcet’s disease, interventional pain treatments offer valuable options to manage and alleviate symptoms. Non-surgical methods that we offer at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can play a crucial role in providing relief and improving the quality of life for individuals dealing with Behcet’s Disease. The following are treatments we offer to combat the pain associated with Behcet’s disease.

1. Anti-Inflammatory Medications

Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) are commonly prescribed to reduce inflammation and alleviate pain associated with Behcet’s. These medications help manage symptoms by targeting the inflammatory response, providing relief from pain, swelling and discomfort.

2. Steroid/Anesthetic Injections

For more targeted relief, interventional pain treatments include steroid/anesthetic injections. These injections are administered directly into the affected joints or areas experiencing inflammation. Steroids reduce inflammation, while anesthetics provide immediate pain relief. This approach can be particularly effective in managing localized pain associated with Behcet’s disease.

3. Physical Therapy

Physical therapy plays a crucial role in managing Behcet’s disease symptoms, focusing on improving flexibility, strength and mobility. A tailored physical therapy program can help individuals with Behcet’s maintain joint function and reduce pain by addressing specific areas of concern through targeted exercises and stretches.

4. Heat and Cold Therapy

Heat and cold therapy are simple yet effective interventions for managing pain associated with Behcet’s disease. Heat therapy, such as warm compresses or heating pads, can help relax muscles and reduce stiffness. Cold therapy, in the form of ice packs, can alleviate inflammation and numb the affected area, providing relief from pain and swelling.

5. Massage

Massage therapy offers a holistic approach to managing pain and discomfort associated with Behcet’s disease. Skilled massage therapists can use various techniques to improve blood circulation, reduce muscle tension, and promote relaxation. This can be especially beneficial for individuals experiencing pain in specific muscle groups or joints.

6. Multidisciplinary Approach

Behcet’s disease often requires a multidisciplinary approach to pain management. Collaborating with a team of healthcare professionals, including orthopedic specialists, pain specialists, and physical therapists, ensures a comprehensive and personalized treatment plan that addresses the unique needs and symptoms of each individual. At Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians, we utilize our resources to provide patients with a multidisciplinary approach to combat pain and discomfort caused by Behcet’s disease.

Interventional pain treatments offer valuable options for individuals dealing with Behcet’s disease symptoms. A combination of non-surgical methods, including anti-inflammatory medications, steroid/anesthetic injections, physical therapy, heat and cold therapy and massage, can be tailored to address specific pain patterns and improve overall quality of life. Consulting with our pain management team at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can ensure you receive a personalized and comprehensive treatment plan, which is essential for effectively managing Behcet’s Disease symptoms and enhancing overall well-being.

Surgery was a success my left knee is fully functional again. Langer and his staff was very helpful through this entire process they assigned me a top physical therapist Cara which was great at helping me to improve now just up to me to continue to condition myself back to the way I was physically before the injury and hopefully I never have to endure any future injuries that lead to surgery. Overall a great help and experience after surgery was completed. Thank You to Langer and his staff.

Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are excellent in the work they do. They take their time with each patient and make sure you walk away with an understanding of exactly what you're going through. I have been a patient here twice and I could 100% assure you that you will have a great experience. Further the physicians are very knowledgeable and experienced at what they do. Moreover, the entire staff are welcoming and accommodating to your needs. I work in Entertainment, and have appeared several times on television (Google "David Wells and Ricky Johnson). I recommend and trust Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians.
