There are millions of seniors suffering from chronic pain. However, not all receive the ideal type of care needed to manage their discomfort. As such, we have made it our mission to provide reputable home health care in Bensalem, Pennsylvania, to help seniors manage their pain. Our goal is to ensure that our clients get to age in place in relative wellness and comfort.
Chronic pain often lasts for more than three months and can come back from time to time. One of the best ways to deal with chronic pain is to identify what’s causing it. For example, physical therapy is targeted at seniors who continue to suffer from the symptoms of osteoarthritis. Medication, massage, and acupuncture are also preferred.
There are numerous types of pain. Musculoskeletal and neuropathic pain are two of the most common. Musculoskeletal pain is caused by muscles, bones, or joints. Neuropathic pain, on the other hand, is caused by the nervous system of the body. Chronic pain is very common in older adults and often has a negative impact on their quality of life.
If our clients have severe, persistent pain that interferes with their ability to function, we can accompany them to the doctors for appropriate determination of the cause of pain. We will then help create a care plan around the doctor’s recommendations.
Helping Hand Nurse, LLC’s personal care services go over and beyond to ensure that our clients get to receive care at home. As such, we can help with managing their pain through skilled nursing and therapies, such as physical, occupational, and speech.
