While each patient experiences chronic pain differently, a consistent approach is often the most successful approach to pain management. Pain management treatments and programs are designed to create this consistency, so the patient can learn to understand how they are the one in control.
It takes patience and discipline to follow through on a treatment plan, especially when it is difficult to see significant incremental results. Whether patients overextend themselves when they are feeling good, or experience disappointment when they can’t meet daily goals, behaviors and emotions can interrupt the consistency important for long-term success.
We teach patients to identify their own relapse triggers and warning signs, and how to plan and modify daily routines to address them. The key is to continue with what’s working; Synovation works to provide the tools patients need in order to take charge of their pain.
