Cancer Pain Management
There are very few diagnoses more devastating than that of cancer. Overwhelming and life changing, cancer and cancer pain takes an emotional toll on the sufferer and surrounding family alike.

Every patient’s pain is a unique and very personal experience for them, so our approach to cancer pain management takes your distinct physical and personal needs into careful consideration in order to offer you the most effective cancer pain management possible. By combining our expertise with a variety of additional medical specialties, ours is a multi-disciplinary approach to cancer pain management treatment.
Cancer Pain Management At Pinnacle Pain Management
Anyone who tries to tell you that there’s a one-for-all answer to cancer pain does not have your or your family’s best interests at heart. Here at Pinnacle Pain Management we treat the whole person, not just the pain. We are focused on maximizing your cancer pain management and increasing your quality of life. Our goal is to make sure patients who suffer cancer pain in the Greater Chicago Area and surrounding communities have access to the best therapy choices that will work for them.
We take time to appreciate every patient’s personal concerns and needs, using our proficiency with highly advanced treatments to provide the best possible choices in therapeutic options to be had. We work hand-in-hand with referring physicians and keep them entirely updated, in writing, about your ongoing progress, cancer pain management and treatment plan.
Among the types of medication therapy we use in treating cancer pain are:
- Anti-seizure medicines
- Seizure medications
- Anti-inflammatory agents (these are non-steroidal)
- Antidepressants such as tricyclic, SNRI, and SSRI
Depending on the patient, epidural injections may be beneficial, also. An epidural injection is used for longer lasting cancer pain management and relief. Generally speaking, epidural injections are administered as a series of injections.
But medication isn’t the only way we help you fight pain. An array of therapeutic methods is all part of our multi-disciplinary approach in pain management. The fields of psychology, physical therapy and chiropractics are all at our disposal in developing the very best management program for your pain. Peace of mind, encouragement and hope are all critical as you work toward recovery. And that’s why, in addition to the best medical and therapeutic techniques at our disposal, we tailor a pain management plan to your unique situation. We understand this is a trying time for you and your family. We’re here to help you fight toward wellness.
