22 Sep Using A Comprehensive Approach In The Management Of Pain
A comprehensive approach to the management of pain is guided by the history of the pain, its intensity, duration, aggravating and relieving conditions, and structures involved in causing the pain. In order for a structure to cause pain, it must have a nerve supply, be susceptible to injury, and stimulation of the structure will cause pain.
The concept behind most interventional procedures for treating pain is that there is a specific structure in the body with nerves of sensation that is generating the pain. The role of pain management is identifying the precise source of the problem and finding the optimal treatment. It can be complicated and can also be a process of elimination to a certain degree.
Pain Management can be simple, or it can be complex. Many times the source of pain is quite obvious and the solution comes easily. However, more often it requires a wide variety of skills and techniques. We also invite you to learn more about Dr. Nikesh Seth and other providers including Dr. Anne-Marie Cosijns, Dr. Lisa Sparks, Dr. Michael Givens, and our team of Nurse Practitioners.
