Facing a New Year with Chronic Pain

Facing a New Year with Chronic Pain

It may seem virtually impossible to move forward after dealing with a pretty (assumingly) strenuous 2014, but the pain management specialists at American Spine are optimistic that with this New Year comes a new beginning for you and other patients. Facing a new year with chronic pain may be tough, but consider some of these tips for setting chronic pain management resolutions!

It is possible to rediscover joy and purpose in life with chronic pain. There are many men and women who have faced the harsh reality of living with chronic pain and have chosen to rebuild their lives and stay positive. If you’re worried about facing a new year with chronic pain alone, don’t be. There are plenty of chronic pain support groups out there that can provide hope for the New Year. Visit the American Chronic Pain Association to find support groups in your area or DailyStrength.org to find a virtual (online) support group for chronic pain.

If support groups aren’t really your “thing,” consider signing up for a pain management clinical research trial. Dr. Khuram Sial of American Spine is the president and principal investigator of Caduceus Clinical Trials (CCT). CCT performs research trials for pharmaceutical companies in the hopes of finding new treatment options for patients living with chronic pain. You can read more about the center here. Talk to Dr. Sial about the possibility of joining a clinical research trial.

Lastly, visit American Spine to manage your chronic pain symptoms. The team of pain management specialists provide top notch care for patients suffering from the condition and have a variety of pain relief options from pain medication to steroid injections that can be supplemented into existing treatment plans.
