What is Pain Management?
If you suffer from acute and/or chronic pain, you suffer from more than just physical discomfort. You also suffer emotionally as a result of that pain. The purpose of pain management treatment is to decrease pain and improve your quality of life.
Pain Management Services at Carolinas Hospital System focuses on reducing pain by utilizing advanced technology to provide site-specific injections to lessen the need for oral medications. We strive to get you back to work and daily activities quickly and cost effectively.
Some pain can be alleviated, while other types of pain cannot be completely alleviated. However, they can be treated and reduced. Our goal is to reach the highest level of pain relief possible, based on each individual’s condition.
