Pain Management

An estimated 50 million people in the US suffer from chronic pain, which is defined as continuous or frequently recurring pain. Common types of chronic pain include back pain, arthritis, cancer pain, and neuropathic pain, which results from injury to nerves. Many people with chronic pain try to endure it. But untreated, the physical and emotional effects of chronic pain can be devastating. Pain can diminish the ability to concentrate, work, exercise, socialize, perform daily tasks, and sleep, any of which can result in depression, a sense of isolation, loss of self-esteem, and independence. Our pain management program is designed to improve the quality of life for those suffering from chronic pain. A comprehensive team approach that actively involves the patient and caregiver is implemented to develop a holistic treatment plan based on each patient’s individual condition. Our main goal is to effectively reduce the patient’s pain and improve his/her well-being by restoring optimal function and independence at home.
