Pain management uses evidence-based treatments to relieve pain, increase functioning, and improve quality of life. The integrative team at LiveWell Med Solutions takes a holistic approach to treating all types of pain.
There are two main categories of pain:
Acute pain occurs suddenly, like after a bad fall, and resolves within several weeks. After treatment, the pain goes away.
Chronic pain lasts for three months or longer. This type of pain can result from acute pain that doesn’t heal properly or an ongoing condition like arthritis. Chronic pain can be especially frustrating if initial attempts at treatment fail to provide relief.
Pain management can minimize the debilitating effects of many painful conditions. You may benefit from pain management if you have any of the following conditions:
Successful pain management often requires a multidisciplinary approach and ongoing care. With their concierge medicine model, the team at LiveWell Med Solutions provides personalized pain management tailored to your needs. They may also refer you to a pain specialist, such as a physical therapist or anesthesiologist, for additional tests and treatment.
Pain management at LiveWell Med Solutions involves treating you as a whole person rather than simply masking your pain with medications. Taking medication is an important part of pain management for many people. However, an integrative pain management plan can help you feel better and move throughout your day more easily while reducing medication use.
First, the team at LiveWell Med Solutions spends as much time as needed to review your medical history and determine the root cause of your pain. Then, they create a customized treatment plan that may include:
They may recommend various complementary techniques like acupuncture, massage therapy, or chiropractic care. Incorporating gentle movement, such as yoga, into your daily routine can also help reduce pain.
