Pain Management Interventions for Hip Fracture

Slide: 13 of 46

Pain Management Interventions Examined in this CER (2)

Eight categories of interventions were identified in the literature search pertaining to pain management for the population of elderly patients with hip fracture.

They include:

  • Spinal and epidural anesthesia.
  • Transcutaneous electrical neurostimulation (TENS), a method of applying electric current in areas surrounding the injured or painful locations to disrupt pain signaling and sensation.
  • Rehabilitation, which uses exercise and physical therapy to improve mobility and reduce pain.
