Pain is a personal experience. It is an unpleasant sensation causing emotional distress which can be brought about by actual or potential tissue damage. In some cases, it occurs without obvious reason. It often interferes with the patient's ability to work, parent, and their relationships.
As the pain begins to consume every aspect of the patient's life, family members and friends also start to suffer as they witness this tragedy unfold. Aggressive measures must often be taken to prevent the pain from progressing to this point. These measures include physical therapy, medication management, psychological support, a neurological evaluation, and possibly an injection or surgical procedure.
70 million Americans are affected by chronic pain. Chronic pain disables more people than heart disease and cancer combined. It also costs society more.
Dr. Rosenblum believes in the multidisciplinary approach to pain management. While achieving a pain free state is his goal, it is not always possible. It is important that the patient has realistic expectations and understands the nature of his pain. The goal of pain management is to enable patients to function and regain control over their life. Through a variety of the above mentioned methods Dr. Rosenblum can offer his patients hope.
Sometimes, there is no obvious explanation, and certain disease processes must be systematically eliminated. This can be distressing because patient often wants immediate results. Truly complex pain problems often need many therapies, and time until the patient can truly benefit. Working in conjunction with physical therapists, neurologists, psychologists, psychiatrists and surgeons, Dr. Rosenblum aims to give his patients the most comprehensive evaluation and treatment plan possible.

There are often many different mechanisms responsible for exacerbating a patient's pain complaint. One factor is internal and external stress. Many patients will often report that their pain is increased during periods of anxiety and depression. These factors must be dealt with in order for the patient to get the maximum benefit out of his or her pain treatment. Dr. Rosenblum is sensitive to these issues and works with each patient to acheive a meaningful result.
