Pain Management Program

for Older Adults

Pain in elderly can be acute or chronic. Pain management in the elderly is difficult unless the pain is properly assessed. Our comprehensive medical assessment includes a thorough review of medical history, physical condition, and lab and diagnostic tests. We focus on overcoming the challenges of pain assessment in older patients such as under-reporting, dementia, sensory and cognitive impairments and fear about addiction to pain medications.

Depending on the patient’s healthcare status, we administer pharmacologic (Interventional therapies) or non-pharmacologic approaches (physical therapy) to manage pain caused by conditions such as osteoporosis, back pain, joint problems, laceration, hip fractures and other serious medical conditions.

Fall Prevention Program

Our elderly fall prevention program is aimed at preventing falls in older adults. By determining, identifying and modifying the physical and environmental risk factors that cause falls, the program helps the elderly to increase mobility and confidence for a more independent lifestyle.
