Pain Management

Treatments & Techniques to Ease Chronic Pain

Pain is a common side effect of illness and post-surgery recovery. Many times, pain will go away on its own within a few days, but there are occasions where the pain can be so intense or last so long that intervention is required.

Central Valley Medical Center’s pain management program provides patients with various techniques and treatments aimed at relieving pain. Each patient’s experience in pain management is different, as every program is individualized based on the specific needs of the patient. One of the first steps in creating a pain management plan is determining what’s causing the pain. Patients with cancer, arthritis, ulcers, nerve damage, and other chronic conditions can often benefit from pain management.

Treatments for Pain

Pain management takes many forms. For some patients, a combination of diet and exercise may be all that’s required, whereas other patients may need stress counseling to help them relax and heal. Our team works closely with patients, taking the time to learn more about them and their condition in order to determine the best possible pain management plan.

Your Pain management program may involve a combination of the following:

  • Diet building
  • Learning new exercises to strengthen weakened muscles
  • Physical therapy
  • Medications
  • Nerve blocks
  • Stress management techniques

Pain management is a continuous process, requiring several visits with your pain management team. This can be difficult on patients who live far away from their hospital or clinic. Though we are a rural area hospital, Central Valley Medical Center has many services that are normally exclusive to city hospitals. We are proud to offer a close to home resource for pain management in the Central Utah Valley area.
