Understanding Comprehensive Pain Management

Millions of Americans experience chronic pain.

Doctors define chronic pain as pain that lasts at least three months. It can be a dull ache or a sensation of throbbing, stinging or burning. Pain also can take the form of soreness or stiffness.

For those who experience chronic pain, however, no definition is really needed. They know it when they feel it—and it can take all the joy out of life.

The thing is, understanding comprehensive pain management and finding a solution to pain isn’t always as easy as going to one doctor and getting something “fixed.”

Indeed, chronic pain can be a multi-faceted problem that requires input from more than one specialist. It also requires an individualized treatment plan.
