The human body is equipped to handle what people call "acute" pain. Pain like a cut, a broken bone, etc... But when pain becomes chronic or systemic, managing that pain gets complicated. Dr. Jacob AuBuchon, an anesthesiologist and pain management specialist in St. Louis, MO, discusses the different and often multiple methods required to treat chronic pain, especially pain related to Chiari, syringomyelia and hypermobility disorders (like EDS). A combination of physical therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and medication is often necessary when surgical treatment fails to control long-standing pain. (2017)
