Thanksgiving marks an opportunity to pause and express our thanks for life’s many gifts, while reflecting upon and showing appreciation to family, friends and loved ones for everything they’ve given us. However, for those living with chronic pain, it can often be a challenging path marked by trial-and-error and immense perseverance. At the Comprehensive Pain Institute in Bedford & Benbrook TX, we pause this Thanksgiving to acknowledge and celebrate its evolution.
Our thanks extend not only to advances in medical science but also our dedicated providers taking in new patients daily and helping improve lives every day!
Early Days of Pain Management: An Overview
Pain relief has a rich and longstanding history in human society. Although ancient civilizations lacked access to our sophisticated tools and knowledge today, they nevertheless relied on herbs, rituals, and early surgical procedures such as willow bark treatment for fever relief – precursors to modern medicines like aspirin.
Early pain-management techniques were often more based on belief than scientific fact, leading to inconclusive results. It was not until the late 19th and early 20th centuries that pain management started experiencing significant, scientifically-backed advancements.
Modern Pain Management Solutions
Recent decades have witnessed an explosion of innovation and knowledge within the pain management space. These developments has been spearheaded by the comprehensive pain physicians dedicated to uncovering all aspects of pain – its cause, effects on body systems and best treatments available – from causes and effects through to finding effective methods for finding relief.
Due to these specialists, patients now have access to a host of treatment options tailored specifically to their needs. From advanced surgical procedures, minimally invasive treatments and innovative pharmacological solutions to holistic therapies like acupuncture and physical therapy, there are now more ways than ever before to effectively relieve discomfort.
Bedford and Benbrook, Texas residents who visit the Comprehensive Pain Institute benefit from consulting some of the foremost experts in pain management. We’re proud to have Benbrook doctors accepting new patients (locations also in Bedford TX) – further evidence of our commitment to making top-tier pain relief accessible for all.
