Along with other supports, pharmacological intervention for pain is managed by our pediatric pain physicians. Physicians gather a comprehensive pain history, perform thorough physical examinations, and alongside the rest of the pain medicine team, develop individualized management plans that may include medications, medical acupuncture, and/or medical procedures.
Techniques that pediatric pain psychologists teach and practice with patients:
· Pain coping strategies
· Stress management
· Biofeedback training
· Relaxation training
· Medical self-hypnosis
· School coordination, accommodations, and reintegration
