At NYPMG our goal is to always use as little medication as possible.  Expecting medication alone to solve all chronic pain problems is unrealistic. “Pain killers” may help control pain, but they are not a cure and long term use may have undesirable side effects. In the course of treatment, short term narcotic therapy may be necessary and will be monitored and optimized as treatment progresses. Fortunately there are many medications available that have proven effective in pain management that are not habit forming.


Keep Fit

We always stress to our patients that regular physical exercise can help to avoid injury and contribute to your physical and mental well being. Therapy and home exercises may be recommended as part of a pain control and pain prevention program. A good diet, regular exercise, avoidance of tobacco and normalization of poor sleep patterns will help reduce stress and lessen pain symptoms.


Stay Active

It is important to maintain activity, although you may need to avoid some activities entirely or do things a little differently to work around your pain. Focus on what you can achieve. Set realistic goals and follow your personal treatment plan.
