The pain brought on by cancer is often a chronic state that persists for many months or years. The management of cancer pain typically involves numerous approaches designed to help cancer patients maximize their independence and capability.
Our doctors are well trained in the diagnosis and treatment of chronic muscle and nerve pain problems caused by cancer. During our consultations, we obtain a complete medical history and gather as much information as possible on a patient’s pain. Our doctors work with each patient on a one-to-one basis to determine the best treatment plan for their individual pain, utilizing the most advanced techniques to relieve symptoms and allow comfortable participation in everyday activities.
Treatments for chronic cancer pain focus on relieving symptoms and can vary depending on the cause and severity of a patient’s individual condition, as well as their overall health and medical history. The most successful pain management programs are those that are specifically tailored to a patient’s needs, enabling them to remain actively involved in their own recovery. Some common treatments for chronic cancer pain include medications, injections, electrical stimulation, surgery or a multidisciplinary approach combining two or more of these elements.
