How the power of support of your family and friends can help get you through pain.

The Power of Support in Pain Management

Living with chronic pain can be an lonely experience, but the support of family can significantly lighten this burden. Research indicates that patients with supportive families report lower pain intensity, reduced dependency on medication, and maintain higher levels of activity. They are more likely to be engaged in work and less inclined to seek multiple sources for pain relief. This is where Dr. Rany T. Abdallah, MD PhD MBA, and his team at APICO Pain Management™ come into play.

Dr. Abdallah understands the crucial role of support in the healing process. At APICO Pain Management™, we believe in a multimodal approach to pain management. It’s not just about treating the symptoms; it’s about understanding the patient’s environment, including the pivotal role families play in recovery. We’ve seen firsthand how a supportive family can transform the pain management journey, leading to significant improvements in the patient’s quality of life.

Our team, led by Dr. Abdallah, works closely with patients and their families to create a nurturing and understanding atmosphere. Education is a key component of what we do, helping families understand how they can be an effective part of the pain management process. From simple acts like listening and offering emotional support, to more involved tasks like helping manage medication schedules and attending doctor’s appointments, the role of the family is invaluable.

On follow-up, patients who described their families as being supportive reported significantly less pain intensity, less reliance on medication and greater activity levels.” -Jamison, RN, Behav Res Ther, 1990;28(4)283-7

Dr. Abdallah’s expertise in #PainManagement, combined with his commitment to a holistic approach, offers hope. Patients are not just numbers or case files; they are individuals with unique needs and backgrounds. By fostering a supportive environment both at home and within our clinic, we aim to empower our patients to lead more active, fulfilling lives despite chronic pain.

If you or a loved one is battling chronic pain, remember, the journey is not one to be walked alone. With the right support and expert care, there is hope for a brighter, #LessPainful future.
