Chronic pain can be debilitating for many. Franciscan Health strives to offer new hope for pain sufferers through interventional pain management that returns the patient to a more functional and productive lifestyle.
Proactive Pain Management to Renew Health and Well-being
Blood pressure, pulse, respiration and temperature have long been defined as the basic "vital signs" of health or illness. Now recognized as the fifth sign, pain has become an important indicator of a patient's state of health, illness and well-being.
Pain often defies definition or description. Those who suffer with it, though, agree on the following: they know when they are in pain and they know they want relief. Franciscan Health offers that relief through an interventional program that gives patients a full range of treatment options, including several minimally invasive procedures, for successful pain management. By significantly decreasing or eliminating patients’ pain, our program dramatically improves their overall quality of care and quality of life.
