Pain that lasts longer than three months can take a heavy toll physically and emotionally. Fortunately, Saint Joseph East offers multiple options for chronic pain relief. Pain management specialist Tabitha Knight explains.
Tabitha Knight, Pain Management Specialist at Saint Joseph East
We offer a variety of different options, including nerve blocks, joint injections. We have medication management. We also offer psychological treatments. We have lots of patients that come from out of town that come to get treatment because, oftentimes, pain management is not something that's offered in some of the more rural communities.
If you have pain that is not going away, ask your doctor for a referral to a pain management specialist.
It's not something that we have to live with, especially if it's causing our quality of life to decrease, mobility to decrease and you're not able to do things that you once enjoyed doing.
