Pain Management

Pain management focuses on pain relief through multiple approaches such as medications, injections, nerve blocks, and therapy, either in combination or on their own. Different types of chronic pain can interfere with your ability to perform daily activities and reduce the quality of life. Pain management focuses on alleviating this pain and helping you get back to your life.

Pain Management Clinic

At Medcare Women & Children Hospital’s Pain Management Clinic, our goal is to relieve your pain and get you back to your lifestyle. Our pain management specialists & doctors have a treat-to-target approach for all types of chronic pain that might be negatively impacting your quality of life.

Chronic pain affects more than just the body. It also affects your mental health.

When Should You Visit a Pain Management Clinic?

Almost everyone suffers from some kind of pain on a daily basis. However, for most people, this pain is a temporary ache that resolves spontaneously with rest. Since everyone is suffering from aches and pain, it can be quite difficult to know which pain warrants a visit to the pain management clinic.

If you are experiencing any of the following, then you should consider visiting a pain management clinic:

  • Persistent pain with a specific motion

Pain associated with a specific motion can really constrict your ability to go about your day. Such pain, especially if you cannot find relief from it, results in the immobility of the affected region. You don’t have to suffer in silence with this pain. Our expert pain management doctors can help find where the pain is originating from and find a solution for it.

Immobilizing is associated with certain health risks and it is best to not immobilize any joint or limb because of fear of pain. Visit a pain management clinic, instead, to alleviate your pain.

  • Inability to perform daily activities

Sometimes, pain can make it difficult for you to do the activities you once loved doing. If your pain has started to interfere with your ability to go about your day and do what you love, then you have to visit a pain management clinic.

  • Inability to get a good night’s sleep

Does your pain wake you up in the middle of the night? Do you have trouble falling asleep because of your pain? Then, a visit to a pain management clinic is warranted. A good night’s sleep is needed for your body to rest and relax. If this is not provided to your body, there may be other health complications along with persistent pain. Consult a pain management specialist and get your pain under control.

  • Radiating pain

Pain often begins in one spot, however, as time passes, it can begin radiating to different parts of the body. This makes the pain even more unbearable as it now affects different parts of the body. It is recommended to consult with a pain management specialist as soon the pain begins to radiate to help manage it before it worsens.

  • Over-the-counter painkillers are no longer helpful

Most people suffering from chronic and persistent pain rely on over-the-counter painkillers for pain relief. However, if you notice that you have become dependent on these medications, so much so, that you take them regularly and multiple times a day, then a visit to a pain management clinic is needed.

Oftentimes, painkillers can also lose their efficiency due to an increase in the intensity of the pain. If the intensity of the pain increases unbearably, then you must visit a pain management specialist to ensure appropriate management and care.

There are some red flags that require immediate consultation with a pain management doctor. Be on the lookout for:

  • Sudden increase in the intensity of the pain
  • Loss of power in your legs and/or arms
  • Sudden inability to control your bladder or bowel
  • Loss of sensation in any part of the body, even if it isn’t the part that is commonly affected by pain
  • Sudden and recurrent feeling of pins and needles in the limbs
  • Inability to balance or lack of coordination
  • Sudden and severe pain at night or while resting
  • Sudden and new pain in the chest, head, or abdomen.
