Chronic pain may arise from an injury, an illness or have no clear cause. Migraines, pelvic pain, abdominal pain.... all have shown to be more common in women than men. Chronic pain from these sources and others disrupts the quality of life of women throughout Logansport and North Central Indiana. Seeking relief can feel like an insurmountable task, but with patience and care - relief can be found.
Chronic pain causes more than discomfort
Women are notorious for caring for themselves after everyone else. Pushing chronic pain aside in favor of taking care of kids, spouses, or ailing parents is all too easy. Ignore it for too long, however, and chronic pain causes far more than discomfort. Issues start with trouble sleeping and the exhaustion that stems from that. Some women turn to non-standard, questionable treatments for their pain. Others become dependent on drugs. Most find themselves depressed, anxious, irritable and so preoccupied with their pain that it interferes with their daily lives. If you are suffering from chronic pain, don't go through it alone. Talk to your doctor about pain management.
Pain management approach
Pain management addresses both the causes of pain as well as treating the pain itself. Our Pain Management service line seeks to help patients find and address the causes of chronic pain.
