Chronic Pain Q & A

What is chronic pain?

Acute pain usually comes on suddenly and then gradually improves until it’s gone, while chronic pain continues beyond the normal expected healing time. When the pain continues for 3-6 months or more, doctors generally define it as chronic pain. 

Chronic pain can happen for hundreds of different reasons, and some cases are multifactorial. Some common reasons for chronic pain include traumatic injury, auto accident injury, workplace injury, cancer tumors, and cancer treatment. 

Chronic pain starts suddenly, often with an injury. For example, you may suffer back pain after slipping and falling at work. But, when your back is persistently painful for months, requiring continued pain management, it crosses into chronic pain territory. 

What is pain management?

Pain management is a branch of medicine that focuses on chronic pain treatment. Pain Solutions specialists have advanced training in a wide range of treatment approaches, including anesthesiology, physical medicine, neurology, and rehabilitation. This unique skill set allows your pain management physicians to personalize your care for optimal results and maximum pain relief. 

Pain management is a collaborative process in several ways. Your pain management doctors work closely with your primary care doctor and/or other specialists to create a safe and effective pain relief plan. Additionally, your own input is very important in a pain management program. Your pain management specialists use your feedback to change and adapt treatments to get maximum results. 

How does a pain management program work?

At Pain Solutions, your pain management program is specific to you. The pain management team often recommends lifestyle changes, as implementing healthy habits can boost the results of your treatment. 

Many pain management programs include long-lasting injections. These include epidural steroid injections, medial branch block, nerve block, facet joint injection, sacroiliac joint injection, trigger point injection, and many others.
