Conventional Approaches

Modifying the Underlying Disorder

One of the goals of the pain assessment is to identify the potential causes of the pain. Treatment directed at the cause always should be considered as part of the therapeutic strategy. For example, a drug or nutrient that helps regulate the immune system and reduces the inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis is likely to have positive effects on the pain. Similarly, radiation given to the site of a malignant tumor is likely to relieve pain.
