Pain management is a branch of medicine that focuses on easing the suffering of people living with pain. The short-term goal is to improve quality of life by addressing symptoms, while the ultimate goal is to eliminate the source of pain completely.
High quality pain management treatment such as that delivered at Coastal Pain Medicine in Pompano Beach will always have the patients’ long-term wellbeing in mind and not just focus on immediate, and usually short-term, pain relief. Such approach includes treating the underlying cause of pain using pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies and, in some cases, invasive (surgical) procedures.
Pain can have a negative impact on a person’s quality of life. Unrelieved pain not only impedes recovery from illness or injury but it can also become a syndrome in its own right. Proper pain management facilitates recovery, prevents additional health complications, and improves an individual’s quality of life. Pharmacological and other therapies have developed over time to address causes of pain and alleviate symptoms. Pain management can be simple or complex, depending on the cause of the pain and on the treatment strategy the doctor and the patient decided to pursue.
