How Does Pain Management Work?
Pain is our body’s way of letting us know something is wrong. It is a common symptom of many illnesses and injuries and is a deterrent for certain behaviors.
However, pain is no longer necessary once we understand the problem. If we have a broken arm, we no longer need to feel pain once we receive the proper treatment.
Pain management helps patients comfortably heal while recovering from injury or illness.
Pain During Treatment
Treatments such as surgery or chemotherapy can cause pain while addressing a much more severe and debilitating illness. Though it may cause pain, we understand the disease or injury is being addressed.
Pain management can help reduce the side effects during the process. This is essential because uncontrolled pain prevents patients from working productively and enjoying recreation even when the underlying disease process is stable.
