What is pain management?

Pain management helps you control pain and discomfort to improve your function, range of motion, mobility, and quality of life. Chronic pain — any type of pain that lasts for longer than three months — impacts every area of your life. Without treatment, chronic pain due to cancer diminishes your physical, emotional, and mental function.

Precision Integrative Oncology offers a wide range of nonsurgical and medication-free pain management solutions to help relieve discomfort if you have cancer.

Why might I need pain management? 

If you have recurrent or metastatic cancer, pain may impact your everyday movements. Many types of cancer can cause pain, including:

Breast cancer

Breast cancer occurs when abnormal cells in the breasts grow and multiply rapidly. The most common type of cancer in women, breast cancer often responds to surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation — all of which can cause side effects, such as pain, burning, numbness, and tingling.

Lung cancer

Lung cancer begins in the lungs but can quickly spread to other areas of the body. Like breast cancer, many people with lung cancer respond well to a combination treatment approach.

Prostate cancer

Prostate cancer affects the small, walnut-sized gland that produces seminal fluid in men. With early intervention, prostate cancer is highly treatable. If you need chemotherapy or radiation after surgery, chronic pain can affect your pelvis, lower back, ribs, and upper thighs.

Pancreatic cancer

Pancreatic is an aggressive type of cancer that starts in the pancreas. Once the disease advances, it can cause abdominal and back pain.

The appropriate pain management plan can help improve your daily function, allowing you to participate in the activities you enjoy.

What are my pain management options?

Precision Integrative Oncology offers several holistic pain management options, such as:

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) therapy that involves inserting thin metal needles into specific points, called meridians, throughout the body. The treatment may help stimulate the central nervous system to relieve pain, nausea, digestive discomfort, and other common symptoms of cancer.

IV therapy

Intravenous (IV) therapy is the safe delivery of fluids directly into your bloodstream. Your provider can customize your fluids to include vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, amino acids, and electrolytes formulated specifically for your type of cancer.

Natural medicinary

The natural medicinary at Precision Integrative Oncology includes many vitamins, minerals, and supplements to support your cancer treatment.
