Theresa's Story - The Pain Management Program
After suffering a job-related injury, Theresa Law thought her life was over. She saw doctor after doctor, and tried treatment after treatment. Nothing worked. But after a family friend referred her to the Pain Management Program at The Nebraska Medical Center, all that changed. After months or years of chronic pain, the body generates a map to pain that is difficult to break. The nervous system changes and what may have been a problem that could have been treated very easily, now becomes much more complicated. When medications, injections, physical therapy and chiropractic services have failed in managing pain, the Pain Management Program at The Nebraska Medical Center offers innovative treatment. Relying on a team of experts, the Pain Management Program uses a multidisciplinary approach to managing chronic pain. The program has been in existence for more than 40 years and is the second-longest pain management program in the country. For more information, visit www.NebraskaMed.com or call 1-800-922-0000.
