Pain & Debilitating Conditions

Pain not only influences your physical well-being, but it also affects functional, emotional, and psychological aspects of your life. Depending on your condition, the pain you are experiencing can drastically reduce your activity level, forcing you to limit your independence which can result in depression, anxiety, and irritability. Know that you are not alone! For most patients, treatment is more than a matter of resolving a nagging discomfort, but it includes attaining pain relief and a better quality of life. At our medical facility, a better life awaits you through individualized pain management plans that include the latest technological advancements in medicine. These include the safest and most effective treatment options that were proven most effective in acute and chronic pain studies.

Acute versus Chronic Pain
Pain is generally identified as acute or chronic. Acute pain is often the result of injury or illness and is typically limited in severity and usually improves within 3 months. At the onset of acute pain, your body tells your brain that something is wrong and needs attention. Such pain can often be controlled by medications. Chronic pain is different in that it can persist for years and adversely affect a person’s life physically, emotionally, and mentally. Unchecked, chronic pain problems can alter your body at the cellular level, causing pain to continue even after the tissues have healed. Advances in acute and chronic pain research are providing effective management and treatment strategies to improve your quality of life.

Pain: A Highly Subjective Condition
Everyone feels pain differently. While some may be able to function with common pain conditions during daily tasks, others may find their condition completely debilitating. They may perceive the pain as severe which leaves them on bed rest. Similarly, patients with various pain conditions may describe their pain in terms of other sensations like extreme heaviness, burning or other abnormal uncomfortable feeling. In understanding an individual’s pain, factors such as duration, intensity, type (dull, burning, throbbing, or stabbing), cause, or location are all considered in the diagnosis of painful conditions. Pain assessment may also include your physician’s evaluation of your pain threshold and pain tolerance.
