Pain is a highly subjective condition as everyone feels pain differently. Consequently, pain conditions can be difficult to diagnose.
While some people are able to perform daily tasks with a certain level of pain, others may find their condition to be too severe and completely debilitating, leaving them on bed rest or lessening their independence. Similarly, some may describe their pain as dull or throbbing, stabbing or piercing, and others with more unique conditions may describe the pain they are experiencing in terms of other sensations like extreme heaviness, burning, or itching.
Our pain management physicians will work one-on-one with you to understand your individual pain, evaluating factors, such as duration, intensity, type, source, or location in the body. They may also consider issues like threshold and pain tolerance in an initial assessment to provide you with an accurate diagnosis. Through an interdisciplinary approach – which combines multiple fields of study from medical to behavioral management and beyond – and an individualized treatment plan, we’ll help you gain control over the pain and find relief, promising that a better quality of life is possible.
