There are different types of pain, and different people have different tolerance levels. Pain may originate in the joints, muscles, or nerves. It may occur due to an injury, illness, or condition, and may be either acute or chronic. These are just some of the factors we take into consideration when determining the best type of pain management treatment for the individual. Our goal is to eliminate pain entirely whenever possible and reduce the pain whenever that is the only option. Thanks to modern treatments that are minimally invasive and which can be used for a wide range of pain conditions, most pain conditions can be solved.
Chronic pain is long-term, usually lasting for more than six months. Some types of chronic pain are continuous, while others may occur in episodes. This type of pain can also be mild or excruciating. This type of pain may be a minor, occasional nuisance which has little real impact on the person, or it may be totally debilitating.
Acute pain is that which is temporary, typically lasting no more than six months, such as you might experience with a broken bone or sprained ankle. Acute pain can be experienced on a variety of levels. Some people can manage by taking over-the-counter NSAIDS, while others will require prescription pain medicine to alleviate their symptoms. As the injury or condition heals, the pain will usually diminish until it no longer affects the person.
We believe in using an individualized approach and implementing the most advanced treatments to provide individuals with the permanent solutions they need to live life to the fullest. These are some of the types of treatment we offer for treating different types and degrees of pain caused by a number of injuries, diseases, or conditions:
