Pain Management during COVID-19: Cervical Disk Problems

Chronic pain is any kind of pain that lasts for three months or more. The pain can either be persistent or intermittent. Chronic pain commonly manifests as migraines, arthritis, spondylitis, myalgia etc. which can interfere with a person’s day to day life. Managing chronic pain is a lifelong process for both the doctor and the patient and it becomes especially challenging in a time like the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chronic pain patients need regular care and attendance from their physicians due to unpredictable pain flare ups. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it was difficult for these patients to visit their physician regularly for fear of contracting the SARS-Cov-2 virus. Many people also developed chronic pain either due to a COVID-19 infection (associated with various kinds of myalgias) or due to the extended periods of work from home which has taken a toll on their backs and necks. 

MedPiper Technologies and JournoMed in association with the Lysander Pain Care and Orthopedic Center, Chennai, are conducting a webinar titled “Pain Management During COVID-19: Approach to Cervical Disk Problems”. The webinar will cover various techniques on how patients and doctors can manage chronic pain with special focus on cervical disk problems. 

The webinar will be held on 16th February, 2022, Wednesday, at 7pm. Participants can join by registering for it here. For more details, participants may contact Soumya T.S at E-Certificates will be provided to all the participants.

Dr. Sheerin Sarah Lysander: MBBS, MD, DNB, FIPM, Fellowship in Interventional Pain Management, Consultant Pain and Spine Physician, Lysander Pain Care & Orthopedic Centre, Chennai. 

Many orthopaedic physicians and fitness experts agree that regular strength building exercises that specifically target the ‘core muscles’ can help with balance, posture and thus help to deal with cervical disk associated pain. Telemedicine platforms have enabled doctors to regularly check up on their patients via teleconsultation and remote patient monitoring. 

The webinar will also help in better decision-making for healthcare professionals and develop appropriate pain management strategies.
