A pain management specialist is a doctor who specializes in pain management; their background and training is focused on the evaluation and treatment of a wide variety of pain types. For those who are suffering from chronic pain that traditional medicine has not alleviated, working with a pain management specialist who has the expert skills and knowledge to treat pain could help. A pain management specialist will be able to accurately diagnose pain, as well as prescribe a variety of treatment options, including alternative therapies.
A pain management specialist is trained to be able to treat pain that originates from a variety of sources and causes. For example, a pain management specialist can work with patients who are suffering from pain as a result of medical conditions, such as diabetes, arthritis, and more. A pain management specialist can also treat patients whose pain is the result of an acute injury — such as a fall or a car accident — or the result of a repetitive motion or repetitive stress injury — such as bad posture at a computer or years of lifting heavy items.
If you are suffering from pain and have not been able to seek relief from your regular physician, you should consider working with a pain management specialist. Before you choose just any doctor, though, you should do your homework and background research first. Important questions to ask a pain management specialist include:
You want to find a doctor who is board-certified, has experience working on cases like yours, and offers a wide range of treatment options for patients with surgery as a last-resort option.
