Pain Management

Nothing interferes with our pursuit of our goals as much as physical pain. Whether it is due to injury, illness, fitness, conditioning, or something else, pain can seize our attention, distract us from our goals, and bring down our energy.

IntoME Wellness specializes in pain management techniques that focus on flexibility, movement and overall functionality.

These techniques promote pain relief by exploring the muscles, tendons, and ligaments in the body  in order to find hidden sources of pain, as well as our bodies’ “habits” that serve to compensate for, and thereby perpetuate, many painful conditions. Through this exploration, proper form can be restored, and rehabilitation can begin.

Our treatment sessions are customized to meet clients’ needs, incorporating several treatments and energy work techniques to bring about maximum effectiveness.

Pain management

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pain management (also called pain medicine 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 pain.[1] The typical pain management team includes medical practitionerspharmacistsclinical psychologistsphysiotherapistsoccupational therapistsphysician assistantsnurse practitioners, and clinical nurse specialists.[2] 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 management team.[3]

Medicine treats injury and pathology to support and speed healing; and treats distressing symptoms such as pain to relieve suffering during treatment and healing. 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 analgesicstricyclic antidepressants andanticonvulsants, interventional procedures, physical therapy, physical exercise, application of ice and/or heat, and psychological measures, such as biofeedback and cognitive behavioral therapy.
