What is Pain Management?
And Is Pain Management Right For You?
Tens of millions of Americans are stricken with chronic or acute pain symptoms each year, including back, neck and pelvic pain to name a few conditions we see regularly. Yet many suffer from pain needlessly without knowing that their are advanced treatments available to help them regain their function in life pain-free. The goal of pain medicine is to manage acute or chronic pain by reducing pain frequency and intensity for the long term. And we focus on solutions that minimize and control for the long-term use of substances such as opioids that can create their own health issues.
But not very patient situation has an easy answer. That’s the magic of working with a pain management specialist like the doctors at Park Avenue Spine & Pain. Dr. Diwan and Dr. DeGregoris have extensive experience diagnosing and treating the most stubborn pain issues, including painfully chronic conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Phantom Limb Pain (post-amputation) and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
