Pain Management

Covenant Health leads the way with proactive, patient-focused pain management services. Our specialized team of physicians and nurses is available 24 hours a day to provide the safest and most effective method of pain control for our patients.

Pain causes a wide range of debilitations, including difficulties with eating and sleeping and feelings of sadness and depression. To combat these problems, our pain management team works with a patient’s physician to develop an individualized pain control plan.

It is important that patients understand the wide range of choices for controlling pain. They include:

  • Pain pills—the first choice whenever possible
  • Patient-controlled intravenous (IV) pain medication—a safe method that allows patients to control their own IV pain medications
  • Epidural pain medication—pain control that is delivered by placing a small catheter into the back, just outside the spinal cord
