Pain Management is an important part of recovery from any illness or procedure. Pain can arise from a wide range of diseases and injuries such as sprains, arthritis, cancer, autoimmune diseases and even poor posture. Often, pain becomes unbearable, and more conservative treatments and therapy fail to offer relief. Many patients turn to additional medications and procedures to find ways to manage the pain levels they are suffering.
Acute Pain vs. Chronic Pain
Acute pain generally is felt quickly after an injury and is temporary. Usually, once the injury has completed the healing process, the pain stops or becomes manageable with simple treatments and medication.
Chronic pain is generally diagnosed after a patient has felt it on a consistent basis for three to six months. Your primary care doctor can help you decide if you need treatment from a pain management specialist.
Newman Regional Health provides consultations, diagnosis, and treatment for both acute and chronic pain conditions. Our goal is to eliminate, reduce or control your pain levels so that you can improve your quality of life.
