WHAT IS PAIN MANAGEMENT?
According to the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians (ASIPP), interventional pain management is a “discipline of medicine devoted to the diagnosis and treatment of pain related disorders.” Pain medicine utilizes a multidisciplinary approach, in which a team of health care professionals works together, to provide a full range of treatments and services for patients suffering from chronic and/or acute pain.
The goals of pain management are to relieve, reduce, or manage pain and improve a patient’s overall quality of life through minimally invasive techniques specifically designed to diagnose and treat painful conditions. Pain management also strives to help patients return to their everyday activities quickly and without heavy reliance on medications.
ADVANCED AND EFFECTIVE PAIN RELIEF
Pain management can also be of great benefit to those who wish to avoid surgical or interventional procedures, by managing the pain associated with certain conditions that may possibly subside over time. Depending on the techniques used, some patients are able to self-manage their pain through a broad range of highly effective methods. Medical Now treats a range of conditions, including:
- Neck and Low-Back Pain
- Herniated Disc
- Spinal Stenosis
- Extremity pain
