Physical Therapist

PAIN MANAGEMENT


WHAT TO EXPECT: 

  1. Uncontrolled pain limits healing.  Staff will round on you hourly to assess pain management.

  2. Pain meds will be timed to support physical therapy and planned procedures.

  3. Not all pain can always be eliminated. Staff will help you identify a tolerable pain level and work with you toward that goal.

  4. Repositioning often helps with pain.  Staff will round on you hourly and help adjust your position.

  5. The time your next pain medication is due will be written where you can see it.
