When unresolved pain combines with sleeplessness
and then frustration and sadness, many people miss work, become depressed,
and neglect their health. Although we now have the medical knowledge
and expertise to manage most types of pain, individuals do not always
seek treatment for the pain or the cause of their pain may be undertreated
or improperly treated.
At University of Maryland Upper Chesapeake Health (UM UCH), we recognize that
chronic pain requires the highest level of compassion and perseverance.
Our healthcare team takes a comprehensive approach to pain management
by utilizing both traditional and complementary therapies throughout
all of our specialty areas and rehabilitation practices. We encourage
you to discuss chronic pain issues with your physician to make sure
you are taking full advantage of the services available on our campuses.
Spinal interventions, surgical treatments, medication
management and physical therapy are all ways that causes for pain can
be identified and ultimately managed. To find a physician, click
