The purpose of pain management is to minimize pain to allow patients to perform activities with less discomfort and interference. Additionally, when patients are using pain medications, we strive to get them off the prescriptions or at the very least reduce the intake. Initially, we determine if the problem the patient is seeking help for is an actual dysfunction or if the medication is masking the symptoms. In other words, is this problem correctable or not? An ailment such as Arthritis does not have a fix, but the effects can be lessened for people. Conversely, a pinched nerve caused by an impingement may be being masked by medication, and in most cases can be corrected.
On any given day millions of people suffer from some form of chronic pain. Unfortunately, many people go through life suffering from dysfunction or a correctable ailment merely because they don’t seek the help. Often these ailments impact a person’s ability to have a productive life to the point that one cannot perform everyday tasks and activities such as eating, sleeping, and dressing.
