Dr. Lewis, a doctor specializing in pain management prides himself on his ability to help patients wherever and whenever. Over the years, being available to treat patients from around the world has been an extraordinary experience and a sincere pleasure.
Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience. Physical pain is often generated by tissue damage. As a doctor, it is my duty to become more sensitive to patient’s pain and to dedicate my time helping people to live productively despite pain. My goal is to reduce the pain that my patient’s feel and restore vitality to their life. I want you to feel happy and remain functional and productive as you were before the pain began. However, accomplishing this requires a pyschological and a physical approach.
Pain is the most prominent member in the class of perceptions known as bodily sensations. Bodily sensations such as pain can provide a powerful warning of damage to soft tissue or bone. Pain management focuses on determining the cause of pain and then utilizing traditional and alternative approaches to decrease and hopefully eliminate the pain. Hence, many individuals believe that physical pain is specific to body parts rather than it being our brain’s mechanism to prevent further damage to our body. This paradox is one of the main reasons why philosophers are especially interested in pain.
