Pain Management Care for the Disabled and Elderly
One of the challenges of aging is the increased level of pain in the body and slow healing processes. Many people are affected by various forms of pain and have difficulty living a normal lifestyle. Whether the pain develops naturally, is chronic, or is caused by injury or surgery, the pain management center at Oxnard Family Circle ADHC will provide quality services to manage and control pain for the disabled and elderly.
Our model programs are designed to meet the individual needs of the elderly, disabled and Veterans of Ventura County. We have been serving individuals living in Oxnard, Camarillo, Port Hueneme, Thousand Oaks, Simi Valley, Westlake Village, Santa Paula, Fillmore and Ventura since 2002.

Pain, whether physical or emotional, is one of those challenges that cannot be left untreated.

Our pain management center in Ventura County is dedicated to improving the quality of life for adults with physical, emotional and developmental challenges.
Types of Pain Treated
There are two major categories of pain acute and chronic. Knowing which type of pain you or your loved one have will help determine the type of care that is necessary to use.
Pain that results from an injury or surgery. This type of pain is generally temporary and will last for several minutes or several weeks. Acute pain goes away with natural healing and is treated with medication and therapy.
Chronic pain is a type of pain that remains beyond the time of normal healing. Chronic pain can result from an injury that was not allowed proper healing. Arthritis, nerve damage and other illnesses such as cancer can cause chronic pain. This type of pain will last six months or longer and is generally found in the neck, lower back, and joints. Migraine headaches are also examples of chronic pain. Chronic pain requires special attention and a variety of treatment options are available for managing it.
Pain interferes with various aspects of one’s life. One’s physical, psychological and social capabilities are affected by pain which can ultimately cause depression and other problems. Controlling and managing pain is very important for the quality of life you live. Our pain management care center in Ventura County works closely with the individual to control any type of pain while home caregivers are away or need respite care.
