Treating pain

Tailored to suit you

Most pain is relieved satisfactorily by combining: 

  • drugs
  • physiotherapy, massages, application of heat / cold
  • relaxation, hypnosis
  • psychotherapy
  • techniques to deaden or stimulate the nerve

Numerous drugs exist that are capable of efficiently relieving the pain (paracetamol, anti-inflammatory drugs, opiates, etc.). The treatment depends on the cause of the pain, how bad it is and what kind of pain it is, and should take into account any previous history.

For this reason, some people come out of a doctor's appointment either confused or remembering little about it. Processing a diagnosis of serious illness takes time, and so does decision-making about treatment. As a rule, a doctor will try to announce a new diagnosis at one appointment and wait to propose more information, including about treatments at a later time.
