Living with chronic pain can be a debilitating and isolating experience. It can undermine our ability to participate in, and enjoy, the simple pleasures of daily living. At Rush Memorial, we seek to form a partnership with our patients that is based on empathy with their experience of pain, clear communication concerning their treatment options, and a respect for their input into the pain management process.
