Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management is a way of helping you live with chronic pain while reducing its impact on your life.

Dr. Pohlman is an expert in finding the most effective treatments for all types of chronic musculoskeletal pain. He creates an individualized treatment program for every patient, looking at every aspect of their lives to address anything that could be making your pain worse.

Painkillers have their place in treating patients who have chronic pain, but they need to be used appropriately because of their high chance of addiction. Dr. Pohlman aims to resolve your pain as much as possible by using comprehensive pain management techniques.

How does pain management work?

Pain management starts with the most fundamental principles of good health: diet and exercise. It’s important not to underestimate the influence of lifestyle on your pain.

Eating a healthy diet, exercising regularly, and avoiding bad habits like smoking and drinking can all make a significant difference in how you feel and your ability to manage your pain.

Dr. Pohlman can help you improve your lifestyle habits to optimize your general well-being. If you need support with making changes, he is there for you and advises you all the way.

How is pain classified in pain management?

There are several types of pain that your pain could fall under, including:

  • Acute pain - sudden but temporary pain
  • Chronic pain - pain that lasts more than 3-6 months and interferes with daily activities
  • Visceral pain - pain caused by damaged internal organs
  • Somatic pain - pain affecting the skin, ligaments, muscles, bones, or joints
  • Radicular pain - pain caused by inflammation of a spinal nerve root
  • Psychogenic pain - physical pain caused by mental, emotional, or behavioral factors
  • Myofascial pain - pain caused by trigger points in a muscle

If you have long-lasting pain that interferes with your life and doesn’t go away, you should talk to Dr. Pohlman about your treatment options.
