Pain Management

Pain is a complex condition. It not only makes your body hurt but can also impact your overall health and emotional well-being. It can stop you from doing things you enjoy, affect your ability to work, and keep you from sleeping well or eating right.

Special services to manage chronic pain are now available close to home for residents of our service area. Our treatments or recommendations may include:

Questions to answer and share with your care provider

Here are some questions you may want to think about and review with your doctor or care provider:

  • Do you experience constant pain or pain that comes and goes?
  • Does pain cause problems with your personal needs such as getting dressed, combing your hair, shaving, bathing, or eating?
  • Does your pain make you sad?
  • How often do you have pain and how long does it last?
  • What, if anything, relieves your pain? What makes it worse?
  • What medications and other treatments have you used in the past for your pain? If so, how successful were these treatments and medications?
  • Where is your pain?
