Defining Pain Management
The term ‘Pain Management’ encompasses a number of approaches to relieving or reducing the sensation of pain. This process might include both non-pharmacological intervention (physical therapy, acupuncture, chiropractic care, etc.) as well as pharmacological methods (steroid injections, for example).
The most common issue that patients have with the pain management process is that it is often stressful. For example, doctors that specialize in pain management may refer patients to a physical therapy center. Patients may then also choose to visit separate offices for acupuncture or chiropractic care. In such cases, patients are doing a lot of additional, unnecessary work in order to find relief.
Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation views pain management as a process that is more successful when approached collaboratively. In this light, Fair Haven pain management patients can find all treatment options—medical care, physical therapy, chiropractic, and acupuncture—working in harmony in one central location.
