And Treatment Planning
Pain Management starts with a thorough history, physical examination and record review. Medical management of pain includes consultation, medications, treatment prescribing, education and counseling.
Not all treatments for pain are suitable for all patients. Not only are some procedures not indicated for some, what works for one, may not be suitable for others.
There are many powerful medications used in pain management. When these medications are used under close physician supervision and with good patient compliance, their benefits almost always far outweigh their potential risks.
As scientists and the pharmaceutical industry increasingly focus their attention on discovering new treatments for pain, our doctors will bring to you the best of what is available for your specific situation.
