Acute vs Chronic Pain

 Acute Painis defined as pain that lasts less than 3 months in duration. It involves injury to soft tissue (muscles, tendons and ligaments) with full recovery expected. Example: sprained ankle, back sprain, muscle bruising, body aches and weekend warrior injuries.  Treatment protocols for acute pain injuries are listed online at the American College of Physicians.

       Chronic Pain is defined as pain lasting beyond 3 months. 

Pain is long lasting, progressive in nature with fluctuating intensities. Your pain lasts beyond the expected

3-month healing time. Treatment protocols are complex and require individual assessments by pain physicians.

       #1 Boca Pain Management offers an extensive array of expert care for your Chronic Pain.

      Traditional Therapy or Surgery have Failed.

*New Treatment Options: 

There are numerous clients who suffer from New Pain (less than three months old) in the same areas of prior injuries which started over three months ago. 

 An example is someone who was injured in the past, was treated by physicians, showed improvement, and stopped therapy. Now they are suffering progressive pain from a recent injury in the same area of their old injury.            

 Is this Acute Pain or Chronic Pain? 

  The State of Florida only allows 3-7 days of FDA approved medical care for Acute Pain.

Chronic Pain Care is determined by your treating physician. 

At Boca Pain Management we offer Individual Pain Care. 

Your treatment options will be discussed with our physician after reviewing your prior physician visits, MRI's, CT Scans, surgical reports, E-Force and physical examination.

  ​Dr. John Girard will discuss your plan of care which adheres to the guidelines of the State of Florida. Your treatment plan may require new updated MRIs, Ct scans and second opinions from other specialists to determine the best options for your chronic pain management. Our goal is to provide the best care to improve your

Quality of Life.
