Comprehensive Pain Management
Pain management is a specialized medical field focused on alleviating pain and enabling you to carry out day to day activities. Pain can be treated in a variety of ways depending on the type of pain being experienced.
Some of the most common treatments used for effective pain management include medications such as analgesics, anticonvulsants, antidepressants, narcotics and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These drugs may be sold over-the-counter or be prescribed by your doctor.
Interventional pain management encompasses a variety of non-surgical and surgical treatments for reducing pain and improving quality of life. These treatments are used when acute or chronic pain interferes with activities of daily living and other treatment options have been unsuccessful in relieving pain.
To treat severe, chronic pain your doctor may recommend advanced interventions such as nerve blocks, patient-controlled analgesia, trigger point injections, surgical implants, and spinal cord stimulation. Multimodal pain management strategies have been recommended to treat chronic pain and overcome the dangers of opioid addiction. This strategy of pain management is reported to be successful in many patients particularly during or after orthopedic surgery and has minimal side effects.
