UNDERSTANDING ISSUES RELATED TO CHRONIC PAIN
To alleviate chronic pain, we offer medical pain management to help patients cope, while seeking to address the underlying cause of pain.
As part of our integrated, holistic approach to healthcare, the doctors at Integrated Pain Specialists use only drug-free treatments through a variety of non-invasive, effective pain management techniques from which to choose physical medicine treatments that can help manage the pain of conditions.
If you suffer from chronic pain, then signals of pain will remain active in your nervous system for several weeks or months, and in some cases, even years.
Having to constantly live with this pain can take a huge toll on your body and health, both physically and mentally.
The most common issues that result in cases of chronic pain include pain caused by injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, sinus pain, tendonitis, backaches, joint pain, and headaches.
TREATMENT FOR CHRONIC PAIN
When you meet with our doctors, you will first be put through a thorough physical evaluation. We will discuss your health history and put the focus on learning about your symptoms of chronic pain, and the various conditions that may cause it. The pain treatments used will vary based on how long you have been dealing with the chronic pain, how extreme it is, where you were injured, and what has caused your pain.
Some treatment options for cases of chronic pain have evolved over the years, but modern treatments are ones that have been effective for many years.
