Managing pain is an important part of your treatment and recovery from an orthopaedic disorder or injury. Pain can cause sleeplessness, depression and limitations on your ability to move – all of which can slow down your recovery.
It is important to manage your pain before it becomes too intense. Be sure to tell your doctor when you have pain and discuss ways to deal with the pain. The sooner you treat pain, the less likely it is to get worse or cause other complications.
