What Is Geriatric Pain?
Our bodies change as we age. This includes the following anatomical and physiological changes:
- Pulmonary central nervous system
- Other overall body systems
Common conditions causing pain for the aging elderly include arthritis, menopause, and low testosterone or male hypogonadism. Our pain care specialists at Pain Zero will assess how well a patient is engaged in daily life, discuss their role in their own pain management, and consider the least invasive way to address pain in Central Ohio patients.
Treating Geriatric Pain
Physiological changes cause such conditions as arthritis, menopause, or low testosterone, generating pain in muscles and joints. Effective non-pharmacological approaches to reduce pain include physical therapy and interventional behavioral therapy, as well as educating patients and caregivers about treatment options. Other treatments include non-opioid and opioid medications, pain-modulating drugs, topical agents, and other innovative therapies aimed at reducing pain and swelling in the joints.
