There are millions of individuals around the world who live with pain. The pain that they experience is so excruciating that it stops them in their tracks. The interesting thing about pain is that two people could have the exact same pain, and it could stem from totally different causes. Or two people could be dealing with the exact same condition, and one of them has chronic pain and the other does not. Due to the personalized nature of pain, it is essential that doctors and other professionals who work in the field of pain management create individual and unique pain management therapies for each one of their patients. This is why at the SaJune Institute for Restorative and Regenerative Medicine, our pain management is not one-size-fits-all.
There is an emotional aspect associated with pain. When you are in constant pain, you start to feel depressed. Why? Well, just about everyone on the planet has experienced some form of pain or another. Our experience with pain is that pain comes, pain stays as long as there is a problem, but once the problem is addressed, the pain goes away. We are able to endure brief periods of intense pain because we realize that relatively soon the pain is going to disappear.
But this is not true for people who experience chronic pain. For them, the pain started and then it never stopped. This can take a toll on a person’s psyche. It is not uncommon for individuals living with chronic pain to experience depression. So, any pain management therapy that is created must take the emotional aspect of living with chronic pain into consideration. Failure to do this is only addressing a part of the problem.
Things are worse for individuals who are experiencing chronic pain, but who do not have any external signs that they are in pain. It’s easy for people to sympathize with a person when they see that their leg is in a cast. However, when a person looks completely normal and healthy, it’s difficult for their friends and family members to sympathize with the agony that they are enduring. All of these things must be taken into consideration when creating customized pain management treatments.
