Managing pain is a priority during cancer treatment. Therefore, our pain management practitioners care for you throughout your treatment to ensure that you are comfortable.
We use a variety of modalities to treat and control pain, including:
- Prescription medications
- Implanted pain pumps
- Massage therapy
- Relaxation techniques
In addition to medication, your pain management regimen may include one or more of our integrative oncology services. Examples include:
- Naturopathic medicine uses natural therapies to help you combat pain, as well as reduce any additional side effects that may accompany your cancer treatment.
- The mind-body medicine team is available to teach you relaxation tools to help you manage pain, and to reduce the anxiety and fatigue related to cancer or cancer treatment.
