Managing pain can be difficult. The Palmetto Health Pain Management and Rehabilitation Center offers solutions. The center helps people with chronic pain regain their quality of life.

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain refers to pain that doesn't improve with time. Thirty days is often the magic number used to assess the duration of unresolved pain. The pain may affect a specific part of the body, as in low-back pain or headaches, or involve many regions at the same time, as in fibromyalgia or osteoarthritis. Those who suffer from chronic pain often lose the ability to perform daily activities. These sufferers may experience occupational disability, depression, drug-related complications and diminished quality of life. 

Behavioral therapy is a major component of treating the patient who is experiencing chronic pain. Our program addresses pain from multiple fronts, integrating several treatment disciplines as part of a single, coordinated effort. 

For patients who have not responded to routine medical, surgical or rehabilitative interventions, our integrated approach is highly effective. The Pain Management and Rehabilitation Center offers physicians and patients a powerful ally for managing chronic and acute pain. From non-invasive approaches involving behavioral and rehabilitative treatment to more aggressive medical and surgical intervention, our services are the most comprehensive available in South Carolina.
