Dallas Pain Management and Auto Accident Pain Relief
Thousands of car wrecks happen everyday. That’s not meant to alarm you, it’s just stating a fact. And while we’re talking about facts, it’s a fact that most accidents come with injuries, ranging from a little bit of pain to things that need full blown surgery. The constant commercials will tell you that you need to call an attorney when you get in a wreck. That’s wrong. You need to call a doctor first, then a lawyer. Health before money because you can’t spend that money if you’re laid up in a hospital bed because you chased paper before a physician. And speaking of physicians, the Dallas pain management leaders at Pegasus Spine & Joint Institute (https://www.pegasuspain.com) have all the latest methods of pain relief therapy such as advanced PRP therapy in Dallas and minimally invasive steroid injections that your auto accident injuries may call for. Remember that your injury is unique and therefore your specific diagnosis and pain management will be as well. Consult with the doctors at Pegasus for more info about your injuries.
Meantime, let Wikipedia refresh everyone’s memory about what exactly “pain management” is:
Pain management, pain medicine, pain control or algiatry, is a branch of medicine employing an interdisciplinary approach for easing the suffering and improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. The typical pain management team includes medical practitioners, pharmacists, clinical psychologists, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, physician assistants, nurses. The team may also include other mental health specialists and massage therapists. Pain sometimes resolves promptly once the underlying trauma or pathology has healed, and is treated by one practitioner, with drugs such as analgesics and (occasionally) anxiolytics. Effective management of chronic (long-term) pain, however, frequently requires the coordinated efforts of the pain management team. Effective pain management does not mean total eradication of all pain.
Medicine treats injuries and diseases to support and speed healing, and it treats distressing symptoms such as pain to relieve suffering during treatment, healing, and dying. When a painful injury or pathology is resistant to treatment and persists, when pain persists after the injury or pathology has healed, and when medical science cannot identify the cause of pain, the task of medicine is to relieve suffering. Treatment approaches to chronic pain include pharmacological measures, such as analgesics, antidepressants and anticonvulsants, interventional procedures, physical therapy, physical exercise, application of ice and/or heat, and psychological measures, such as biofeedback and cognitive behavioral therapy.
So there you have it. Now that we’re all caught up on what pain management is, it’s time to move forward with your pain management treatment.
