Aging doesn’t have to be painful! If you’re experiencing aches and pains that interfere with your quality of life, at the office of The DOCS, we can help!
As you age, it’s important to monitor your health and see your doctors regularly, especially at the initial signs of any changes or pain you may be experiencing. Some aches come with age, but others could be signs of illness. We can help develop a plan to manage pain as you age. The first step is to schedule a consultation to discuss your health.
Some common categories of pain in an aging population include pain caused by a disease such as degenerative joint disease, osteoarthritis, or cancer. Pain can also result from poor mobility, which can develop over time or as a result of surgeries, broken bones or certain conditions like dementia. The key is to determine the source of the pain in order to provide a treatment plan.
Before your visit, take note of the type of pain you are having and when it occurs so you can provide this information to your doctor to help get an accurate diagnosis. Here are a few questions to consider to help your doctor best understand your symptoms:
We will conduct a comprehensive assessment and medical history to fully understand your health concerns so we can provide an accurate diagnosis and tailor treatment to meet your needs and manage your pain.
