OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine® is dedicated to improving pain and function in patients with persistent pain who have failed to respond to routine medical care. Our medical specialists combine advanced medical knowledge, technical expertise and compassion to implement creative solutions in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with acute, chronic and cancer pain.
Pain can develop for many reasons. Pain can be acute, chronic or caused from cancer. Acute pain can be managed immediately and can improve in a short time. If pain persists after the designated healing process then you may have chronic pain. Chronic pain can worse or remain the same. In either case, it is important to address your pain with a medical professional. Cancer pain can be caused by surgery, treatment procedures including radiation therapy and chemotherapy, or from the tumor itself. Effective pain management is essential to comprehensive cancer care.
Pain management can be simple or complex. The treatment of pain is guided by the history of the pain, its intensity, duration, aggravating and relieving conditions, and structures involved in causing the pain. Pain management identifies the precise source of the problem and uses the optimal treatment option to relieve pain.
