A Panoramic View of Pain Management

Everybody experiences pain, but nobody experiences pain in the same way. Some people have a high pain threshold. Others may not. What might be moderate pain for one person may be excruciating for someone else.

Individual Approach to Pain Control

Because of this different experiences with pain amongst individuals, pain control must be approached on an individual basis. Just as pain varies from individual to individual so must pain management techniques. A pain management technique that is successful with one person may be totally ineffective for another individual.

Teamwork in Pain Management

The purpose of pain management is to control the pain so that the quality of life is improved. A single person is not able to address all of the various aspects of pain. Teamwork allows the effects of pain to be addressed, and the effects of pain are numerous.

Effects of Pain:

  • Poor appetite and weightloss
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Social withdrawal
  • Moodiness, anxiety, and/or depression
  • Physical and verbal aggression
  • Difficulty with movement
  • Impaired immune system function

Quality Pain Management

Effective pain control takes the various effects of pain into consideration. More than that, quality pain management takes into consideration the specific effects of pain felt by the patient. Quality pain management individualizes the pain management plan, and members of the pain management team address the various effects.

A Multidisciplinary Approach

A multidisciplinary approach to pain management works best. In this approach, members of the pain management team are selected because of their specialization in addressing specific effects of pain experienced by the patient. The pain management team may be comprised of medical care professionals, pharmacists, mental healthcare professionals, physical therapists, and even massage therapists. In addition to these individuals, a pain management team may include members of the alternative medicine community such as spiritual advisors and life coaches.

Listening to the Voice of the Patient

The pain management team will listen to the patient. Self-report is the number one indicator of the severity of pain. The beliefs and values of the patient should be of primary concern to the pain management team. Ultimately, the pain management team needs to consider what the patient wants and devise a plan of fulfilling these wishes with the various pain control techniques at the team’s disposal.

Snapshot Versus Panorama

The difference between this individualized, multidisciplinary approach to pain management and pain control methods used in the past is the difference between a snapshot and a panoramic shot. The snapshot only provides on viewpoint, while the panoramic shot provides for a wider viewpoint.

This wider viewpoint is need when discussing pain management. Pain management is more than alleviating the suffering experienced from pain. Pain management centers on improving the quality of life for the patient. It addresses the effects of pain that an individual experiences so that a sense of normalcy and equilibrium can be introduced into the patient’s life. Current pain management practices have moved from the snapshot to the panoramic viewpoint, and this change is of the utmost benefit to the patient.

Banish back pain for good with these pain relief protocols

According to independent research, close to 85% of people all over the world are struggling with lower back pain – and many of those same people are dealing with a real drought of effective pain relief solutions that forces them to live day to day with chronic pain, agony, and frustration all stemming from issues and injuries that they aren’t sure of how to resolve.

We are talking about a back pain epidemic here, a problem that even the world’s foremost medical experts and pain relief professionals aren’t exactly sure of how to best approach just yet.

This puts millions and millions of people in very sticky situations, very painful situations, and requires individuals to look into their own pain management and pain relief protocols to wash away the symptoms that they are fighting through on a regular basis.

If you yourself (or someone that you care about) is dealing with pain stemming from back issues, know that you aren’t alone and that there are answers out there that can help you eliminate this pain (almost completely) in record time.

You only need to know what you’re getting into ahead of time.

The rest of the inside information below will give you those answers.

Rest is the ultimate foundation for recovery

Surprise, surprise – giving yourself a bit of quality rest and time to recuperate is one of the best things you can do to eliminate your back problems altogether.

back-painIndependent research published in the United Kingdom and America dictates that individuals living with back pain were able to significantly reduce the amount of chronic and acute pain they were dealing with by a significant margin just by “taking it easy” and resting a single hour more than they usually did previously.

This doesn’t mean that you need to go lie down and take a nap in the middle of the day to enjoy effective pain relief (though that isn’t exactly the worst thing that you could do to improve your life significantly across the board), but it does mean that you need to lay off of strenuous and painful activities for a while – at least until your back is behaving again

This is obviously easier said than done for a lot of people, but it’s still something that you’ll need to put into place if you are to enjoy any real or consistent pain relief whatsoever.

Drop excess weight and you’ll leave chronic and constant pain on the floor as well

It’s not all that difficult to recognize that we as a global population are getting heavier and heavier by the minute, it’s also not all that difficult to recognize that there are serious health repercussions involved with this epidemic.

Anywhere between six and seven out of 10 adults are considered to be clinically obese by a variety of different measurements and markers, pointing to a significant health issue that seems to be ignored by mainstream media and the medical world in general.

This cannot continue to happen if we are (as a global community) going to enjoy the kind of pain-free lives that we deserve. Sure, pain pills are helpful when it’s time to take a bit of the edge off, but when you realize that you can eliminate most – if not all of – your pain just by shedding a couple of excess pounds along the way, you are going to be able to take complete control and ownership over your life in a way that you weren’t previously.

Not only that, but there are substantial benefits outside of pain relief and pain management that you are going to be able to take advantage of when you lose weight as well. We’ll let you find out about the all on your own the second that you see a slimmer you in the mirror!

Take advantage of pain solutions

There are a lot of different pain relief solutions available on the market today, and it’s up to you to do your research and due diligence to verify that you’re moving forward with options that suit your needs right down to the ground.

Pain management protocols that leverage light weight or low impact exercise, that help you stretch and strengthen the muscles in your back, and that use “low powered” pain pills – over-the-counter or prescription pain pills, it makes little difference – are your best bet to get back into the swing of things as quickly as possible.

A few things regarding safe usage of painkillers

According to statistics published by the United Kingdom’s government (and a number of independent research firms all over the world), more people are taking advantage of painkillers and pain pills today than at any point in human history – and the number only continues to rise each and every day with many of these people buying painkillers online.

pain_reliefMillions of people in the UK are taking pain pills and other pain relief/pain control medications, and millions more will have to turn to these pain management options later down the line to lead the kind of “everyday life” they had always expected to.

If you yourself (or someone close to you) has been prescribed painkillers at any point in time, war expects to be prescribed these solutions in the future, it’s important that you pay attention to the inside information included below.

Always use painkillers and pain pills EXACTLY as prescribed

If a medical professional has recommended or prescribed strong painkillers such as codeine phosphate or dihydrocodeine for you, it is of the utmost importance – an absolute necessity – that you follow their directions to the letter without any deviation whatsoever.  Prescription pain pills like this are opiates and they can be dangerous even fatal if not taken as prescribed.

The overwhelming majority of people that have to contend with side effects stemming from these solutions and up putting themselves in a sticky situation because they do not follow the directions to the letter, and only have themselves to blame for the problems that they may face later down the line.

Eliminate the potential for these problems in the first place by being smart about your pain management and prescription regimen.

If you notice any serious side effects of pain pills, immediately discontinue use and seek out medical attention

If, at any point in time, you notice side effects stemming from pain pills or any pain solutions you are taking advantage of you need to seek out proper medical attention ASAP and immediately discontinue using those drugs.

A simple review of the information provided with each and every one of these prescription pain options will show you that there are almost always potentially dangerous side effects that may or may not present themselves when you begin using the drugs.

You need to pay incredibly close attention to that information and be vigilant about symptoms of side effects as they present themselves, and you need to discontinue use of those pain solutions as quickly as you can when you notice the symptoms setting in.

Obviously, you’ll only want to continue using painkillers or pain pills after a doctor has cleared you and giving you the green light to begin your pain management process up again.
