At Westchester Medical Center (WMC), the flagship of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth), clinicians representing a variety of specialties collaborate to pinpoint the causes of, and provide patients lasting relief from, chronic headaches.
Chronic pain is a significant, costly health problem in America that impacts the workplace. An employee with chronic pain suffers from a persistent condition that can last for weeks, months or even years. Its causes and treatments are numerous. Depression is also often associated with chronic pain and may need to be treated as a separate, but related, condition.
Patients suffering from debilitating or life-altering pain can benefit from a wide range of treatment options designed to prevent or enhance surgical intervention. Individually tailored treatment regimens vary from basic medical management to more sophisticated pain modulation techniques and can offer relief without the need for invasive surgical procedures.
