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
Our chronic pain program (CPP) takes a multidisciplinary approach, recognizing that every individual has unique needs and goals. The primary objective of the chronic pain program is to increase your ability to function physically on a daily basis. We employ a wide range of tools.
Progressively Graded Physical Conditioning Exercises
To help reestablish your physical stamina and alleviate pain, we’ll provide both cardiovascular endurance training and help you strengthen your core. The cardiovascular program includes a variety of exercises, including the treadmill, a stationary or road bicycle, stair climbing, walking and progressive weight work on upper body endurance equipment. To improve your core, we’ll design a specific weight bearing and training circuit and also employ yoga techniques. We may also use static strengthening or gait training, manual traction or help you with neuromuscular re-education.
Pain Management Treatments and Technologies
We offer a broad array of procedures to treat your pain, including massage therapy, heat and ice, paraffin treatments, whirlpools, ultrasound, mechanical traction, acupuncture, electrical muscle stimulation and infrared technology.
We offer individual counseling, as well as group therapy, teaching you effective skills to minimize and cope with pain. We also offer biofeedback and cognitive therapy training.
We will conduct a thorough analysis of your pain medication needs, as well as any drugs you are currently taking. We offer outpatient detox services, and can help you put together an effective program to ensure that you get the most benefit from your medications with the minimal amount of risk. We also offer medication titration, a process where we can determine the optimal dosage to address your pain with the least risk of side effects.

We can assist you with your efforts to return to the workforce, providing occupational and vocational counseling. We’ll help you develop an effective work plan, create an effective resume, learn good interview skills and engage in a job search.
