Pain Management

Chronic (long lasting) pain touches every aspect of people’s lives. Without chronic pain management, it is not possible to fully work, move about or enjoy life. Sudden pain that comes from an illness or injury can be just as disruptive and devastating. Northwell Health offers comprehensive pain management services with many methods to help bring pain under control and manage the side effects of treatment. The chronic pain management program is multidisciplinary, with many options for treatment.

Chronic pain management can complement the treatment of several conditions, including:

  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Headache
  • Sickle cell disease
  • Sciatica
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Cancer

Chronic pain management goals:

  • Increased physical function
  • Decreased reliance on medication
  • Return to work and daily activities
