What is Chronic Pain?

Pain is categorized as chronic when it lasts for longer than 12 weeks continually. Many people who suffer from chronic pain may have this pain for months or even years. Chronic pain won't dissipate on its own. Expert medical care is needed to properly address this type of pain. As an interventional pain management specialist, Dr. Anil Kumar at Advanced Pain Management Center knows how to effectively deal with nearly any type of chronic pain. You don't have to "power through" the pain or try to live through it. Long term solutions are available and it's possible to live a pain-free healthy life.

What Type of Treatments are Available for Chronic Pain?

There are a number of treatments that are available for conditions like back pain and sciatica, headaches and migraines, joint pain and arthritis, and other types of pain. Prescription medication, lifestyle modifications as recommended by Dr. Kumar, and specialized procedures are all effective choices for the management of chronic pain. Some patients may need a combination approach to pain management, for example, lifestyle modifications and specialized procedures together, to get the optimal results.
