What Is Pain Management?

Many Sequim, Forks, and Port Angeles, WA men and women suffer from chronic pain. Whether it's due to an injury, a disease, or something else, chronic pain can take a toll on a person's overall wellness and make it hard to live daily life and complete the most basic of tasks. Undoubtedly, this could lead to depression, anxiety, and more. If you are experiencing this kind of pain, Dr. Alisha Detorres offers pain management to help alleviate pain and provide pain relief that lasts. For more information on pain management, contact Dr. Detorres at Coastal Health in Port Angeles, WA to schedule a one-on-one consultation.

What Can I Expect from Pain Management Treatments?

Before any pain treatment is performed, Dr. Detorres will meet with you for a private consultation. During your consultation, she'll review your health history, family history, source of pain, pain level, and may conduct lab tests or perform an ultrasound on the area of your pain. Once she establishes the cause of your pain, she'll create a custom treatment plan that should not only control the pain but treat the root cause of the pain. Depending on your particular needs, Dr. Detorres may suggest platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy or prolotherapy, both of which help control, treat, and eliminate chronic pain by stimulating the body's natural healing process. While more than one session is likely, many of our patients experience some results after a week or two. Dr. Detorres will schedule follow-up visits based on your particular needs.

Pain Management FAQ

What is the difference between acute and chronic pain?

Acute pain is typically short-lived and related directly to an injury or sudden illness. Chronic pain usually persists for more than six months after an injury or illness and can come and go, even with treatment.

When is the right time to seek pain treatment?

If you have pain that has lasted for more than 2 – 3 months, it is recommended that you seek treatment. Postponing treatment can often cause the pain to get worse.

Are there pain management options other than narcotic pain medications?

Yes, there are. Dr. Detorres offers multiple effective pain management options like PRP therapy, prolotherapy, and more, that don’t include narcotic pain medications.

Can chronic pain affect mental and emotional health?

Yes, it can. Multiple research studies have found a link between chronic pain and depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues. One 2017 study found that pain and depression are closely correlated both in regions of the brain and neurological functioning, often causing the two disorders to develop together.
