SCORE takes a multidisciplinary approach to managing painful conditions. Our goal is to maximize function and independence with the use of exercise, lifestyle modification, coping strategies, and procedures when appropriate. A large part of the strategy involves minimizing the use of potentially harmful medications and optimizing the use of relatively safe agents.
Pain management employs an interdisciplinary approach for easing pain and suffering while improving the quality of life of those living with chronic pain. Medicine treats injury to support and speed healing, as well as relieving discomfort during treatment and healing. When a painful injury has healed or when the cause of pain cannot be identified, the task is to relieve suffering. Treatment approachees to chronic pain include pharmacological measures, such as analgesics, antidepressants, and anticonvulsants, interventional procedures, physical therapy, physical exercise, application of ice and/or heat, TENS, acupuncture, and psychological measures, such as biofeedback and cognitive behavioral therapy.
