Chronic pain is part of life for more than 100 million people living in the USA. That means approximately 1 out of 3 people in the USA are experiencing nagging, uncomfortable pain and sometimes disability due to chronic pain. It can feel helpless to have such pain in your life. It could be joint pain, back pain, muscle pain, breathing problems, migraine headaches, etc. Regardless, when you are in the throes of such issues you simply want relief! What can you do?
One item that our skilled nursing care advocates is to be proactive with your own health. You need to maintain a non-sedentary lifestyle. At first when experiencing your pain this can seem impossible. Take it slow, but start to be as active as possible. Increase your activity slowly. Stay in touch with experienced health care professionals. Do not do this alone. At Hometown Home Healthcare, we have quite a few of our clients that we are assisting with these issues. We help them manage their pain with relevant advice and then will monitor their progress. We listen to their problems and analyze what the next steps may be.
Our skilled nursing care staff will ask plenty of questions after consulting with our clients such as:
· How much rest is the client getting?
· Is their sleep peaceful?
· What type of exercise are they capable of doing?
· Are they able to do this exercise on a regular basis?
· What type of nutrition are they receiving?
· Can they cook their own meals?
· What activities are they performing during their normal activities
· What therapies are they attempting to relieve their pain?
· Are they taking any medications for their chronic pain?
Once the lifestyle of our clients is determined, we offer some solutions to their problems! We will determine a daily routine to alleviate some of the activities that may be aggravating their chronic pain. Some of our clients may be attempting to perform activities in their homes that they now are not able perform. Our skilled nursing care may offer assistance such as; having a home health aide perform some of the home cleaning activities they are no longer able to do. Our skilled nursing care will develop a gentle exercise routine that can bring relief to your chronic pain.
The last item that our skilled nursing care will analyze will be your pain management with prescription pharmaceuticals. We will determine along with your doctor what should be the medicines to take. This will alleviate your nagging pain. Our team of our skilled nursing care and a caring home health aide will work with you so you are not alone. When you are living in your home, Hometown Home Healthcare will see that you are not alone! With a home health aide from Hometown Home Healthcare we will provide home cleaning, cooking, and pain management to you.
