Pain Management Q&A

When do I need pain management help?

There are a few signs that it’s time to see a pain management professional like Dr. Love at doubletrack naturopathic. If any of the following issues sound familiar, a pain management assessment could be highly beneficial:

  • Your pain persists despite treatment attempts
  • You have side effects with your current medication
  • You’re taking more medication than before
  • You’re trying to avoid surgery
  • You’d like to stop taking addictive medications

When you’re dealing with long-term pain, it may seem like finding relief is hopeless. But, it’s important to know that there are alternative approaches that work. 

Dr. Love uses naturopathic techniques to help you control the pain, rather than allowing your pain to control you. 

What factors influence chronic pain?

Many factors influence and dictate the way you perceive pain. Pain is unique to the individual, which means that uncovering the factors that play into it can help you overcome it. 

Many different factors may contribute to your chronic pain, including:

  • Your diet
  • Past injuries and illnesses
  • Chronic health conditions
  • Stress levels
  • Work
  • Recreational activities

During your pain management assessment, Dr. Love reviews all of these factors in detail so she can optimize a program for you.
