Pain management

Pain management is sometimes misconstrued to entail "pain relief or the use of pain relievers."

Doctors at Pain Management Consultants evaluate what is causing your pain and how to alleviate it.

We've all felt pain from a variety of sources, including underlying ailments, disorders, traumas, and cancer. Pain could possibly be a side effect of the treatment you've been receiving. It can strike any portion of our body abruptly, preventing us from engaging in typical daily activities.

Pain management is a new branch of medicine and healthcare that focuses solely on assisting patients in leading a high-quality of life by reducing or alleviating pain. This is accomplished through a combination of therapies, exercises, medication, relaxation techniques, meditation, and changes in lifestyle. Pain management is concerned with both acute and chronic pain.

Conditions that call for the need for pain management:

Any pain should be handled as soon as possible for the best long-term consequences.

A properly personalised plan can help you manage pain that has been bothering you for days, weeks, or even months.

Some common conditions that can trigger pain:

  • Musculoskeletal conditions like joint pain, frozen shoulder, cervical spondylosis, arthritis and its types such as Gout, rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis
  • Autoimmune conditions like Lupus and Crohn's disease, which are triggered by an abnormality in the immune system due to which it either stop attacking foreign bodies or mistake the patient's own cells as foreign bodies.
  • Endometriosis
  • Chronic pain disorders like fibromyalgia and Central pain syndrome
  • Facial pain
  • Neuropathy, which refers to severe nerve damage, usually caused by underlying conditions.
  • Chronic headaches

Paint can be 

  • Acute pain - It is defined as a sudden onset of shooting pain, usually caused by an injury or underlying condition. By addressing the root cause, the discomfort can be readily alleviated. Acute pain is caused by conditions such as a bone fracture, appendicitis, or a burn.
  • Chronic pain - It is pain that worsens gradually over time and can endure for weeks or even months. It is generally the outcome of an unrecognised or untreated sickness or injury. Chronic pain is caused by illnesses such as arthritis and fibromyalgia.
  • Nociceptive pain - It is a type of pain that is caused by tissue injury. When this happens, the nociceptors, also known as nerve cell endings, send messages to the brain, causing pain to strike suddenly.
  • Neuropathic pain - It is pain caused by a malfunction in the neurological system that causes it to create pain signals without any identifiable underlying reason. If you have diabetes or HIV, you are more prone to encounter this.

Pain evaluation

The first stage of pain management is to identify the underlying cause of the pain, as the entire treatment strategy is based on this. During the consultation, our specialists will ask you questions and review your medical history in order to determine the potential causes of your pain. If the underlying cause is known, a team will create a plan and immediately implement it; if the underlying cause is unknown, a diagnostic test may be necessary to confirm the diagnosis.

There are additional factors that must be considered, such as the location and intensity of the discomfort.

Pain management modalities

Among the various pain management modalities recommended by our experts are the following:

  • Home remedies - This is typically prescribed for patients with mild to moderate bone and muscle injuries, such as a sprain, elbow or ankle twist, or a sudden blow. You will be instructed to use RICE (rest, ice, compression, and elevation) techniques or perform simple exercises.
  • Counselling and therapy - These include cognitive-behavioral therapy and biofeedback, which serve to improve how your mind responds to physical pain. Long-term discomfort frequently results in anxiety and depression, both of which must be treated appropriately. These can be managed through therapy, ongoing counselling, and meditation techniques.
  • Exercises - Exercising can assist to improve your mobility, range of motion, and posture, all of which can help to alleviate discomfort. Exercising does not have to involve heavy lifting; alternative options include yoga, pilates, swimming, cycling, and jogging.
  • Hands-on therapies - This includes physical therapy, oil massages, chiropractic adjustments, and acupuncture, all of which have been shown to relieve pain and improve mobility. Because of their usefulness, they are age-old procedures that have been adopted into modern medicine.
  • Lifestyle modifications - Sometimes it is your lifestyle that is contributing to your pain, and adopting healthy changes in that area can assist to bring about a positive improvement. Weight loss, increased activity, an improved sleep cycle, and healthy food are all examples of lifestyle changes.
  • Medication - Medication is typically prescribed to patients who have not responded successfully to other treatment choices. It might be reported as a primary treatment or in conjunction with other treatments. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory medications are two of the most regularly recommended medications.
