Chronic Pain Management

A Patient's Guide to Chronic Pain Management

Introduction

According to the National Center for Health Statistics chronic pain health care costs and lost productivity has reached nearly $100 billion a year. It affects approximately 76.2 million people - more individuals than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.

The primary goals in chronic pain management are to assess, understand and treat your pain condition.

This sounds simple. It is not simple or easy. The process requires a great deal of time and effort on both the part of the pain management team and you.

This guide will help you understand

  • what chronic pain is
  • what pain management is
  • how chronic pain is managed
  • what you can expect from pain management

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain is sometimes defined officially as pain lasting more than 6 months. It may also be accurate to define chronic pain as pain that has no clear end in sight. It may be something that you will have to learn to live with - or around. Anyone who has lived with chronic pain, or has treated patients with chronic pain, eventually comes to the understanding that the chronic pain is a disease in itself, regardless of what is causing the pain. It is this disease - chronic pain - that pain management specialists treat.

This does not mean that the team will ignore what is causing your pain. The first goal is to assess your pain. This means that your healthcare provider must try to determine, if possible, what is causing your pain..

The first question that should be asked is: "Does the pain have a source that can be eliminated by doing something to you - such as a medical treatment or surgery?"

Usually, the doctors that you have seen before you arrive at a pain management center have already done this. They refer you to the pain management center because they have not found anything that will reliably eliminate your pain. The pain management team will start from scratch and review all the tests and imaging studies that have been done and examine you. Sometimes the pain specialist may uncover new things or make new diagnoses. Usually they do not.

Once your pain management specialists have satisfied themselves that there is no reliable way to eliminate your pain through a medical treatment or surgery, they will begin the process of understanding your pain. This is a complex process. It does not end as long as you have the pain. The pain management team will constantly reevaluate what they think about your pain, how it is affecting you and what is needed to change the approach to helping you live with your pain.

Understanding your pain and treating your pain go hand in hand. How you respond to certain treatments gives your pain specialists a better understanding of your pain. They probably will not get the right, or best, combination on the first try - or the second. But they will continue to work with you to refine the treatment plan so that you get the best plan ...
