What is Pain Management
Chronic pain affects hundreds of millions of people worldwide, altering their physical and emotional functioning, decreasing their quality of life, and impairing the ability to work. Chronic pain is a very disabling condition. It affects general health, psychological health, and social and economic well-being.
The specialty of Pain Medicine deals with the Diagnosis, Treatment and Rehabilitation of the person in pain. A team of dedicated experts from various disciplines of medicine participate in the diagnosis and treatment of the pain. The main objective of pain management is to provide a better control of pain to enable the patient to return to a functional lifestyle. It also promotes psychosocial well being of the patient with decreased dependence on pain medications.
"I have been coming to see Dr. Rashid for the Past 15 years. I was very sick with pancreatitis. Since he is a pain specialist, he got rid of the pain... ...He is a wonderful Doctor and I highly recommend him."
"I now travel a little bit more, do my chores at home, and help out my wife, kids, and grandkids. Before that I was not able to do a lot of things. Now I am moving here and there."
"My pain progressively got worse. I got to where I could not bend over, reach up, couldn't do anything. So I finally was sent to Dr. Rashid. A week later I had my procedure, and by the next morning my pain was gone. It's been over 2 weeks now and I have not had any pain. I am able to play cards, sit at my computer, and dance. I am really really pleased that I have no more pain. "
