Pain Assessment

What is a Pain Assessment?

Pain management starts with a pain assessment. Pain management is an often misunderstood science. This is because pain is misunderstood.

To understand and treat pain first requires an assessment of the pain.

It involves knowing the

  • Location
  • Description
  • Onset
  • Duration
  • Frequency


Where is the pain? Beyond is it in the arm, leg, or foot, there is a need to know is it on the surface, or deep within? Is it bone pain or is it muscle or tendon pain. With questions, often it is possible to define the location of the pain.


What does the pain feel like? On a Scale of 1-10 how would you rate your pain? Is it sharp, dull, stabbing, burning, or any other descriptive words that would help someone understand the pain?


What time of the day does the pain start? What things do you do that result in pain?


How long have you had the pain? How long does it last when it starts?


How often do you get the pain? Regularity and relationship to time and circumstance all have a bearing on what is going on and how to treat it.

The assessment will allow your health care practitioner to help you find relief from pain.

Well, if they are dedicated to pain relief that is. Some are in fear of government reprisals because of abuse of the system by a relative few doctors. As a result, not all doctors may not be as dedicated to or understand the need as well as others.

One group who shine in this regard will be the Hospice Nurses and Doctors who care for people with the most debilitating types of pain. They of all health care professional are experts at assessing pain, pain management, and providing chronic pain relief.

However if your not a candidate for hospice, there still is hope. If you are not finding help from health care practitioners, there is a revolutionary new way to manage health that many are embracing. It is called self education.

This is what your doing right now. Many pursuing their own self education are finding solutions that have escaped the medical community.

Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.

Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.

The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.

It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).
