More about pain management
According to the National Institutes of Health, pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. It has even been cited as the most common reason Americans access the health care system, and it’s a leading cause of disability.
As per the National Institutes of Health:
- Chronic pain primarily causes long-term disability
- Because pain conditions are diverse, they require various treatment approaches and ongoing research
- Not only is pain a chronic disease, but it can impede cancer treatment, and can even be the direct cause of other conditions and diseases (such as a traumatic brain injury, depression, or post-traumatic stress disorder)
If you choose interventional pain management, you should expect to take part in a comprehensive program that will not only help to reduce your pain, but that will also help you to manage future pain, and improve your quality of life. Perhaps the biggest advantage of interventional pain management is that it helps patients return to their daily physical activities sooner, and without the aid of pain medications.
