What exactly does Pain Management consist of? What can a pain management specialist assist with? Pain can cause changes in your physical and emotional health, such as depression and sleep problems. At pain management clinic, Lifestream Health Center located in Baltimore, MD, there’s a variety of different medicines and therapies that pain management specialists work with in order to properly reduce the pain from a surgery, injury, or illness. Pain management may help you rest, heal, and return to your daily activities. Pain management can also help increase your appetite, sleep, and energy, and improve your mood and relationships.
The main priority of our Pain Management Specialists is to increase their patients’ quality of life. Research has shown great benefits in working with the powerful, medicinal Marijuana plant. By altering pain perception pathways in the brain, the cannabinoids in marijuana can help reduce pain which may be helpful to treat conditions that cause chronic pain, such as arthritis, fibromyalgia, endometriosis, and migraine. It may also minimize cancer treatment side effects, like loss of appetite. CBD in marijuana is also said to help reduce inflammation. In theory, this may benefit inflammatory conditions, such as Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and rheumatoid arthritis. Decreasing inflammation in the body can also improve overall health. Research has also shown great effects that the use of Medicinal Marijuana has on a group of interconnected structures, located deep within the brain known as the limbic system, which is the part of the brain that’s responsible for behavioral and emotional responses. Doctors often prescribe medicinal or medical marijuana to treat certain neurological and mental health conditions such as anxiety, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and more. The relaxing effects of medicinal marijuana may also help improve sleep disorders such as insomnia.
In addition to working with Medicinal Marijuana we also offer our patients’ the path to begin their Ketamine Infusion Treatment that is beneficial for many different ailments as well!
