Dr. Grinstead On Utilizing A Team Approach For Chronic Pain Management

August 2, 2014 by Steve Grinstead

If you’re like me you know that living with chronic pain can be very difficult. If you also have a coexisting addiction or other psychological disorders it becomes even harder. Your self-esteem is practically non-existent and many of you may even lose the support of their significant others. Please watch my Video Blog below and then read the remainder of this post.

People with chronic pain and coexisting disorders often become depressed and feel a deep sense of hopelessness. Healthcare providers often become confused and frustrated when their treatment interventions are ineffective, and often blame the patient (you). Given the biopsychosocial nature of chronic pain it is imperative to utilize a multidisciplinary treatment plan.

I’ve helped people who were mislead by some unscrupulous healthcare providers who told them they could handle all of their chronic pain management needs. In many cases what they offered was a wide spectrum of medication that led many of these people into bad problems.

True multidisciplinary pain management involves a host of interventions such as physical therapy, massage, medication management, counseling or therapy, biofeedback, occupational therapy, exercise physiology, an addiction medicine specialist, an anesthesiologist or pharmacologist, and a case manager. It may also include some type of movement therapy such as Tai Chi, classes on spiritual wellness, yoga or meditation.
