Chronic Pain

What is the difference between acute pain and chronic pain?
Acute pain is temporary and typically results from an injury, surgery or infection. Chronic pain is reoccurring or continuous pain that persists for longer than two weeks. It is usually caused by a disease or the body’s abnormal reaction to injury or stimulus. It tends to be less intense than acute pain, but it can be just as debilitating.

How do you manage chronic pain?
For chronic pain management Southeast Anesthesiology Consultants has another division called Southeast Pain Care. At Southeast Pain Care physicians are double board certified in anesthesiology and pain management. This means that they have the expertise and training to be able to diagnose and treat complex pain cases. To learn more about Southeast Pain Care visit www.sepaincare.com.

What techniques are used to manage chronic pain?
Chronic pain techniques vary greatly from patient to patient. Some of the techniques our physicians use include prescription medicines, nerve blocks, continuous epidurals, spinal blocks, nerve stimulators and narcotic infusions. Our physicians recognize each patient is unique and tailor the treatment to your individual needs.
