For chronic pain patients, it can be deeply frightening and saddening to accept the fact that the pain they feel really may never completely go away. But that doesn’t mean there’s no reason to try to find management techniques that can improve quality of life and reduce overall pain -- in fact, early intervention has been shown to dramatically help in cases of chronic pain.
Multiple studies have shown that early intervention can not only improve mobility and general functionality, but that seeking effective, multidisciplinary treatment early on can also help with the emotional aspects of chronic pain. It’s also far more cost effective than waiting, and can help curb long-term damage.
If you have chronic pain and want to regain or maintain functional ability, call The Washington Center for Pain Management to discuss your options. It’s never too late to get help for your chronic pain -- but acting early can get you back to your life sooner and more effectively.
