Because chronic pain may affect the sufferer in many ways, the most beneficial treatment may require a multi-disciplinary approach. This means providing treatment not just for the physical pain, but also treatment to help the patient return to mental and emotional well being. SpineNevada's team approach to spine and musculoskeletal healthcare encourages our providers to collaborate internally and with outside specialists to offer a wide range of pain management treatments to achieve these goals.
Acute pain usually begins suddenly and may be intense. It often triggers visible bodily reactions such as sweating, an increase in blood pressure, and more. Acute pain is generally a signal of injury to the body, recent surgery or medical illness; and it resolves when pain relief is given and/or the injury is treated. In more serious cases of pain, however, a pain medicine doctor may be necessary to help manage the pain and offer patients relief.
Chronic pain persists, and pain is often considered chronic when it lasts beyond the normal time expected for an injury to heal or an illness to resolve. Chronic pain, also known as persistent pain, can be stressful for both the body and the soul, and usually requires careful, ongoing attention to be treated appropriately.
