Pain Management is Important
The best way to relieve pain is to treat the cause. Almost all types, including cancer pain, can be controlled with medication and proper treatments. For instance, chronic pain is best managed by taking medications on a schedule to prevent it.
Non-drug methods, such as relaxation techniques, distraction/ imagery, music, heat or ice, repositioning, elevation and pet therapy can also provide relief. We may not eliminate it, but we can
certainly lower your pain to a manageable level, ultimately helping you to become more independent during your hospital stay.
Your feedback is very important! Remember —pain prevention and control brings short- and long-term relief with healing bene?ts. It prevents suffering and may help you heal faster
and go home sooner.
