Chronic Pain Management
When it comes to generating unique solutions to unique conditions of pain and discomfort, there is no better place to go than an interdisciplinary institution that is dedicated to giving patients an extremely catered experience that accounts for the whole body, rather than to a facility that settles for simply masking symptoms.
At Advantage Healthcare Systems, the first step in our pain management program is a comprehensive psychosocial clinical evaluation. The physician will sit down with his or her patient and go over the patient’s medical, psychiatric, psychological, social, and work history to gather the entire collection of circumstances that have led the patient to that moment. With no relevant details left behind, our team will work together to develop a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to managing the patient’s pain and overall health.
Even if it means giving patients a referral to a different practice, our team is dedicated to doing whatever it takes to put together a successful treatment plan for any condition.
Holistic Approaches to Chronic Conditions
Any condition that necessitates medical intervention is significant enough to require careful consideration of the patient’s complete health and well-being. This is especially the case for chronic and severe conditions. Accounting for the patient’s internal, physical, physiological, and mental health allows for the creation of creative and holistic treatment plans that offer patients a solution to achieving the most complete wellness possible.
Injuries and illness can be life changing, but if you receive all-encompassing medical care, you give yourself the best opportunity of enhancing your quality of life.
Don’t overlook the capacity of psychological, physiological, and cognitive treatments and exercises to generate significant improvements to your overall health. Our treatment methods have the ability to treat specific conditions or create an improved sense of wellness for general pain and discomfort.
Treatment Methods We Offer
Based on our evaluations, we will derive a treatment plan that may consist of one or more of the following treatment methods:
Biofeedback: The ultimate informative tool in physiology for patients, biofeedback provides visual and quantifiable feedback to your body’s physical state. This information allows you to train yourself to manage your pain.
Relaxation training: Pain generates discomfort that can progressively degrade your overall condition. By working on relieving stress, tension, and anxiety, relaxation training can improve the way your body responds to pain.
Self-monitoring: By keeping a diary and closely tracking your pain, patients can develop a helpful perspective of their current state. This allows patients to be more relaxed and gracious on days where pain is minimal and to understand how to handle days where their pain flairs.
Self-hypnosis and visual imagery: Using these techniques, your physician can help manipulate your cognitive abilities to concentrate through pain on meaningful tasks.
At-home treatments: From mental and physical exercises to materials such as recordings, performing at-home work can extend the professional medical benefits of cognitive and behavioral treatments. These treatments give patients 24/7 access to pain management when they need it the most.
Emotional management: Pain, illness, and rehabilitation can affect you not only physically but also emotionally. Throughout the rehabilitation and recovery process, your mental and emotional stability can affect your progress in a positive or negative manner. Learning how to maintain a healthy emotional state will help with pain management.
Whether your pain is persistent, severe, or both, it’s likely reducing your capacity to function and enjoy your life to the fullest. Take every measure you can to reclaim your best life by working with Advantage Healthcare Systems. Call our Dallas medical office at (877) 487-8289.
