Pain Management

What is Pain?

According to The International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP), the definition of pain is: “An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage… The inability to communicate verbally does not negate the possibility that an individual is experiencing pain and is in need of appropriate pain-relieving treatment. Pain is always subjective… pain is that experience we associate with actual or potential tissue damage. It is unquestionably a sensation in a part or parts of the body, but it is also always unpleasant and therefore also an emotional experience.”

Pain is the second most common reason that people visit doctors, exceeded only by cold and upper respiratory infections.

While acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert you to possible injury and the need to take care of yourself, chronic pain is different. Chronic pain persists. Pain signals keep firing in the nervous system for weeks, months, even years. There may have been an initial injury -- sprained back, a broken bone, a serious infection, or there may be an ongoing cause of pain -- arthritis, cancer, a herniated disc. Some people who are diagnosed with fibromyalgia suffer chronic pain in the absence of any past injury or evidence of body damage. Common chronic pain complaints include headache, low back pain, cancer pain, arthritis pain and neurogenic pain (pain resulting from damage to the peripheral nerves or to the central nervous system itself) such as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD).

Is there any treatment?

Pain is complex, so there are many treatment options:

  • medications

  • acupuncture

  • local electrical stimulation

  • brain stimulation

  • surgery

  • treatments for chronic pain

  • psychotherapy

  • relaxation

  • medication therapies

  • biofeedback

  • behavior modification

What is the prognosis?

Many people with chronic pain can be helped if they understand all the causes of pain and the many and varied steps that can be taken to undo what chronic pain has done.
