Managing pain is an integral part of a patient’s treatment in recovering from an orthopedic injury or disorder. Our pain management team is dedicated to providing interventional treatment options for the management of acute and chronic pain. We know how real pain is and how it can restrict an individual’s lifestyle. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to pain management and conditions.
What is Chronic Pain?
Pain that last three (3) months or longer is considered “chronic”. This pain is your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. The cause of chronic pain is not always clear and it may occur because brain chemicals that usually stop pain after you recover from an illness or injury are not working properly; damaged nerves can cause pain or chronic pain may exist without any cause.
Our pain management team works with the patient to reduce their pain by including physical therapy and medications. They also provide evaluation for consideration of many new and rapidly advancing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Usually pain is treated beginning with the least invasive and less potent measure first. If these methods do not work, stronger approaches are then prescribed. Our team of experts carefully monitors each patient throughout their treatment.
