Veterans Care Q&A

What injuries are common in veterans?

War and military training can take a significant toll on your short-term and long-term health. Some of the most common pain conditions veterans experience include:

  • Burns
  • Head injuries
  • Gunshot wounds
  • Chronic joint dysfunction
  • Muscle sprains and strains

Many veterans also experience phantom limb pain after losing an arm or leg. In addition to chronic pain, many veterans struggle with mental health issues, like depression and anxiety, that can contribute to or worsen persistent pain.

What can I expect during my initial veterans’ care consultation?

The providers at Long Island Chronic Pain take the time to understand the root cause of your chronic pain. After a review of your medical history and military service, your pain specialist performs a physical exam.

After reviewing the results of your physical exam and diagnostic tests, the Long Island Chronic Pain team creates a treatment plan that focuses on fast and long-term pain relief.

What treatments are available for veterans?

If you’ve been injured during your military service, you can find comprehensive treatment options at Long Island Chronic Pain.

The staff has extensive experience in treating a variety of chronic pain conditions that affect your neck, knees, spine, and whole-body using treatments like:

  • Nerve blocks
  • Trigger point injections
  • Facet joint injections
  • Sympathetic blocks
  • Epidural injections
  • Radiofrequency ablations

The team is also skilled in regenerative medicine therapies and the use of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections to help you heal. PRP occurs naturally in your blood and contains growth factors that trigger your body to produce new, healthy cells that replace damaged ones.
