Pain Management Treatment Programs
Many of CRC’s treatment facilities offer specialized programs for pain management. Beginning with a thorough musculoskeletal and neurological exam, pain specialists determine the origin and nature of the pain, and develop an individualized treatment plan. Essential components of treatment may include medical consultations and care, physical therapy, sensory integration, dialectical behavioral therapy, trigger point therapy, acupuncture, hydrotherapy, nutrition counseling, manual therapies, and other integrative therapies.
For many people, physical pain acts as a primary trigger for addictive behaviors. Because of this correlation, CRC’s chronic pain programs use the fewest medications possible and when appropriate, prescribe non-addictive medications with the fewest side effects. As trained medical specialists target and treat the causes of pain, they are also well-equipped to address any co-existing addictive behaviors.
With appropriate treatment, chronic pain patients can learn to manage, control, and reduce their pain. As self-awareness, mood, sleep, and physical ability improve, the patient’s quality of life returns, restoring hope for an active and pain-free future.
