Pain Management Services
Certified Pain Management Care Performed By Expert Medical Staff
Chronic pain is a condition that affects 75% of the United States population at some point throughout life.
It is the second most common reason for visits to primary care providers. Chronic pain may interfere with a person’s quality of life, ability to function, mood, sleep, and work, among many other possibilities. It also distresses the American economy approximately 333.5 billion dollars in lost annual productivity. Chronic pain may be associated with a wide range of injury, disease, obesity, and other medical conditions, and may sometimes be the disease itself.
Chronic pain never completely goes away. Here at Medstar Health Solutions, we strive to safely and effectively improve our patients’ pain by utilizing a multidisciplinary approach. Our goal is to maximize our patients’ level of functioning and independence, as well as to improve their overall quality of life.
A patient’s treatment plan may include the combination of oral and topical medications such as anti-inflammatories, muscle relaxants, and opioids, among other classes of medications. The treatment plan will also frequently involve referrals to Orthopedics, Neurosurgery, and/or other interventional pain specialists for evaluation of various procedures, when indicated.
Additionally, we will routinely incorporate weight loss, physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic, and mental health, among other modalities as part of our patients’ treatment regimen. Utilization of the various resources allows us to develop a safe and effective treatment plan that will not only help ease the pain of our patients but will also improve their functionality and allow our patients to live life to the fullest.
