What is pain management?

Pain management helps you cope with chronic (long-term) pain. Living with pain for months and years is exhausting and stressful. People with chronic pain conditions can have higher rates of mental health problems like depression, anxiety, and substance use disorder.

The pain might be due to an incurable illness, be severe, or both. Apex Medical Wellness offers compassionate, effective pain management support that minimizes discomfort and helps you lead a more rewarding, enjoyable life.

Who benefits from pain management?

Anyone who suffers from pain can benefit from pain management. Conditions that often cause chronic pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Herniated discs (ruptured discs)
  • Spinal stenosis (narrowing of the spinal canal)
  • Neuropathy (nerve dysfunction)
  • Cancer
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)
  • Sciatica
  • Migraines
  • Trigeminal and occipital neuralgia (facial pain)

Chemotherapy treatment for cancer can also cause pain and other side effects.
