Management of musculoskeletal pain: Focus on chronic musculoskeletal pain.
Both patients and doctors struggle with the hard condition of musculoskeletal pain. Regardless of age, gender, or economic situation, many adults have gone through one or more bouts of musculoskeletal pain at some point in their life. About 47% of the overall population is impacted. Of those, between 39 and 45 percent have persistent issues that call for medical attention. Musculoskeletal discomfort that is not properly controlled can have a negative impact on quality of life and cause serious socioeconomic issues. This article provides a thorough analysis of how chronic musculoskeletal pain is managed. It briefly discusses the history, classifications, patient evaluations, and various management options based on the most recent evidence. Effective management of musculoskeletal pain must include both multidisciplinary techniques and multimodal analgesia as important components. A patient's recovery, wellbeing, and quality of life can all be improved with the use of pharmaceutical, non-pharmacological, and interventional pain therapy. Recent recommendations encourage the use of physical instruments and preventative measures initially to reduce the need for drugs. The correct application of interventional pain therapy and other alternative techniques is essential for the safe and efficient management of individuals with chronic pain who have not responded well to medication.Author(s): Joseph Paul
