What is Pain Management
Pain management refers to the use of various techniques and modalities to alleviate pain and discomfort caused by physical injuries, illnesses, or chronic conditions. These may include manual therapy, therapeutic exercise, electrotherapy, ultrasound, and heat/cold therapy, among others. The goal of pain management is to improve the patient’s quality of life, reduce their reliance on pain medication, and help them return to their normal daily activities.
Who Can Benefit Pain Management
Pain management can benefit individuals who are experiencing chronic or acute pain, such as those with musculoskeletal injuries, arthritis, neurological conditions, or post-surgical pain. It can also be helpful for individuals with sports injuries, work-related injuries, and those with chronic conditions such as fibromyalgia or chronic back pain.
