Chronic Pain Treatment in Staten Island, NY

Calmare Pain Relief Solutions offers treatment for chronic pain to the residents of Staten Island, Brooklyn, and the surrounding communities in New York.

WHAT IS CHRONIC PAIN?

Chronic pain is a term that is used in the medical community to describe pain that lasts for three or more months.  Patients who experience chronic pain may have reduced capacity to conduct day-to-day activities due to the severity and extent of the discomfort. This may lead to cycles of depression.  Chronic pain can be caused by many conditions, such as illness or injury.

Pharmaceutical treatments for chronic pain do not always provide the patient with long-term relief, and these patients may experience severe side effects that add to the complexity of medical management.  Additionally, many pharmaceutical treatments for chronic pain place the patient at risk for becoming chemically dependent on the drug.

HOW IS CHRONIC PAIN TREATED?

Chronic pain may be treated with Calmare® Therapy, a non-narcotic, non-invasive medical procedure for the treatment of chronic pain.  For more information about Calmare® Therapy, please click here.

WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR TREATMENT?

Candidates for the treatment of chronic pain include any person who has experienced ongoing pain and discomfort for a period of three months or longer.  The types of symptoms that may be categorized as chronic pain include shooting pain, burning sensations, aches or discomfort associated with nerve stimulation, also known as electrical pain.  Chronic pain may also be described by patients as soreness, tightness or stiffness.  As with all medical treatments, proper diagnosis is a key element of successful treatment with Calmare® Therapy.  Your doctor will ask you questions about your medical history and conduct a thorough examination, as well as ask you questions about the intensity, location and longevity of your pain and discomfort.

WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PROCESS?

The recovery process depends on the severity of the medical condition being treated, as well as individual factors, such as your age, general health and individual treatment plan.  Recovery may take a few weeks or several months.  During your recovery, you should remain active to help with the healing process, but you should avoid any strenuous activities that are not recommended by your doctor.

You will remain under medical management during your recovery period so that your physician can monitor your progress with an emphasis on minimizing and reducing pharmaceutical usage.
