Pain is a growing problem for physicians and patients. When inadequately treated, pain can lead to depression, loss of function, increased time to heal and lost workdays. Unfortunately, many patients think their pain is a normal part of their medical condition and something that must be endured. But there are things you can do to alleviate pain. Taking back control of your life is a reality when pain management is used as part of a holistic approach to healing.
What is Pain Management?
According to the American Academy of Pain Management, it is:
- the systemic study of clinical and basic science and application for the reduction of pain and suffering
- the blending of tools, techniques, and principles taken from the discrete healing art disciplines and reformulated as a holistic application for the reduction of pain and suffering; and
- a newly emerging discipline emphasizing an interdisciplinary approach with a goal of reduction of pain and suffering
Reducing Pain and Suffering
What does it really mean to reduce pain and suffering? To the person suffering from constant headaches, from chronic back pain that keeps them from functioning normally or from pain caused by cancer that continually brings that condition to the forefront of thought, it means a break from something that can take control of your life and all activity.
Conditions treated include:
low back pain
cervical spine pain
thoracic spine pain
phantom limb/stump pain
acute herpes zoster pain
post-herpatic neuralgia pain
peripheral neuropathy pain
complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS, also called Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy or RSD)
