Pain Management Therapy
Vital Care provides pain management treatment with the goals of maximizing comfort and improving the patient’s quality of life.
Pain is a common reason that patients visit their doctors. If pain persists, it not only causes physical disability, but pain also places an emotional, economic, and psychological strain on patients and their families.
Pain management is a common infusion therapy provided to patients in the home or alternate site settings. This therapy can be administered by intravenous, intramuscular, subcutaneous, or intrathecal/epidural infusions. Effective pain management provides benefits to the patient through earlier return to activity, shortened hospital stay, decreased hospital admissions, and the subsequent reduction in costs associated with the chronic pain.
While the focus of pain management is on the alleviation of pain and suffering, an underlying goal is to allow the patient to rejoin their normal daily activities. Our pharmacy staff will work closely with your physician to complete a comprehensive patient assessment before establishing an effective treatment regimen that meets the patient's needs. Our patients receive frequent assessments to assure adequate pain control and patient satisfaction.
