Hip Fracture Pain Management

Fractures of the hip are a common occurrence among the elderly. Hip fractures which are not stable require surgery. Poorly managed pain from a broken hip can cause delirium, depression, sleep disturbance, and can also reduce the response to treatment taken for other medical conditions.

A healthcare center in Brooklyn, New York, HealthQuest provides comprehensive surgical and non-surgical treatment for hip fractures as well as hip fracture pain management services. Our pain relief measures ensure optimal pain control to facilitate rehabilitation and promote patient comfort.

Multi-Specialty Approach to Pain Management

Our multi-specialty healthcare center has a team of geriatric care specialists comprising experienced pain management physicians, occupational therapists, neurologists, physical therapists and orthopedic surgeons. These experts collaborate to help hip fracture patients

  • Get relief from pain
  • Speed up recovery
  • Reduce the need for longer hospitalization
  • Regain mobility as early as possible

There are many options for pain management for hip fractures in elderly. At HealthQuest, detailed individual assessment ensures that each patient gets a customized pain management plan based on specific medical issues, personal choices and medical guidance.

Pain Management

Interventions for

Hip Fracture

We ensure successful pain control with routine assessment and proper pain score charting from the preoperative period through rehabilitation to complete recovery. The pharmacologic and/or non-pharmacologic pain management interventions available to control the pain in elders include

  • Systemic analgesics
  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS)
  • Nerve blocks
  • Anti-convulsants
  • Tricyclic antidepressants
  • Physical therapy
  • Traction
  • Relaxation therapy
  • Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS)

By easing pain early in the cycle, we help hip fracture patients avoid side effects that can worsen their condition and limit their activity.

Fall Prevention Program

Most hip fractures happen because of a fall. Falls among the elderly are preventable.

Our six-week slip/fall prevention program is designed to help older adults reduce their risk of falling. The program involves Biodex Isokinetic testing and exercise, gait testing and training and dynamic balance testing to improve strength, balance and walking speed. We also help participants identify and remedy the environmental factors that can increase the risk of falls.
