Chronic Pain Intervention Management
What is palliative therapy?
At Scanroof Vein, palliative treatment is designed to relieve symptoms, and improve your quality of life. It can be used at any stage of an illness if there are troubling symptoms, such as pain or sickness. It can also be used to reduce or control the side effects of cancer treatments.
Some of the palliative treatment examples are as below:
- Radiotherapy to reduce pain if cancer has spread to the bones.
- Chemotherapy or targeted therapy to stop the cancer growing into other organs.
- Surgery to reduce tumours causing pain or other symptoms.
- Medicines to control symptoms and relieve discomfort.
