Managing Chronic Pain Without Pills

Chronic pain is a major medical condition characterized by pain lasting beyond six months or the normal time required to heal from an injury. Unlike acute pain, which is a normal, healthy process, the signals of chronic pain can remain active in the nervous system for months or even years. This can take a physical and emotional toll, adding to the pain and increasing emotional stress. About a quarter of Americans suffer from chronic pain ranging from mild to excruciating. It may be episodic or continuous and incapacitating.

What causes chronic pain?

The causes can be complicated and not always obvious. The most common types of chronic pain are headaches, joint pain, pain from injuries and chronic back pain. Then there is pain from congenital conditions, cancer and arthritis. Chronic pain may have no clear cause. When there is no clear cause for pain, it can be difficult to treat. Chronic pain management requires a multidisciplinary approach designed to help patients reach their greatest potential and highest level of functioning and independence.

There are many chronic pain conditions ranging from mild to incapacitating. These include:

  • Cancer pain
  • Chronic back pain
  • Fibromyalgia pain
  • Chronic pain in women

Since each patient’s pain is unique, treatment plans at our anesthesia clinic must be tailored to address individual needs.
