“Pain” is an umbrella term used to describe a wide range of uncomfortable sensations felt in the body. No two people will experience the same pain, as each person’s perception of pain will be different. This is why a pain management plan that works for one person may not work for the next.
At our clinic, our first goal for pain management is always to help reduce someone’s level of discomfort while we determine the source of their pain. Once the source is discovered an appropriate and comprehensive treatment plan can be created using safe and effective pain management treatments to provide relief, without addictive risk or negative side effects.
