Chronic and Acute Pain Management

 

Chronic pain impacts the whole person. Chronic pain often requires a multimodal and multidisciplinary approach and intervention. At MISH Hospital and Clinics, our anesthesia doctors focus on the whole person. We specialize in pain related to a specific region of the body. We use many different approaches and methods to best help people take an active role in managing their pain and regaining control of their life.

We have adopted four important guidelines to direct pain management:
• Optimize pain control while recognizing a pain-free state may not be attainable
• Enhance functional abilities and physical and psychologic well-being
• Enhance the quality of life of patients
• Minimize adverse outcomes

Our Target Population:
The patient we are likely to help most are patients with chronic non-cancer neuropathic, somatic (e.g., myofascial), or visceral pain syndromes. Also, pain related to degenerative major joint disease, headache syndromes (e.g., migraine and cluster), temporomandibular joint syndrome, or trigeminal or other neuralgias of the head or face.

Our initial approach is a thorough evaluation. A good evaluation will more quickly focus care in the right treatment direction. Once we understand the pain, it is a lot easier to determine which of the multiple modalities and/or therapies to start with. 

Our Doctor:
Dr. M. Faulkner is an anesthesiologist with a great interest and dedication to the patient with chronic pain. To start your treatment, please contact us for an initial appointment and evaluation.
