Understanding the treatment of pain
Pain is a symptom of either an acute or chronic medical condition that has the potential to significantly obstruct the lives of those it afflicts. The majority of pain experienced is considered ‘acute,’ which usually fades away over a short period of time with only a simple treatment. However, when pain persists or progresses over a long period of time it is considered ‘chronic.’ Although invasive surgery is a viable solution for some plagued by chronic pain, most, if not all, can receive considerable pain relief without surgery.
With the ongoing introduction of new and improved diagnostic tools, we continually advance our understanding of pain and the most effective course of treatment. Armed with innovative techniques, we treat a variety of conditions that are the cause of acute and/or chronic pain.
