"Pain is the number one reason people go to see their physician," said R. Norman Harden, MD, a neurologist and Medical Director of the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago Chronic Pain Care Center, located at 1030 North Clark Street in Chicago.

"The biggest obstacle we have to overcome is assessing a patient's pain, because each person's perception of pain is different," said Dr. Harden."The only way to "measure" someone's pain is by measuring their improved functions and decreased disability, depression and anxiety.That's why we tailor pain management therapy for each individual patient, as opposed to a ‘one size fits all' approach."
"Another huge obstacle to overcome is gaining the patient's trust," continued Dr. Harden.
"Many chronic pain patients have been suffering for so long, they'll try almost anything to relieve their pain," said Dr. Harden.
"Doctors no longer believe that treatment for pain comes exclusively in the form of a pill or injection," said Dr. Harden.
Because of the interdisciplinary approach and the simplicity of the techniques the Center teaches, more than 90 percent of the patients have said they would recommend the Center to others and 60 percent report a significant decrease in the pain they are feeling, according to Dr. Harden.
"The goal of the Chronic Pain Care Center is to bring the best quality of life to our patients by teaching them how to manage their pain at home," said Dr. Harden.
