If pain has seemed to take over your life, there are a few things that you can do, such as various types of therapy and medications. When you meet with our doctor to discuss the reasons behind the pain that you have, you can work together to create a plan for the best pain management treatment. Before beginning any kind of treatment, there are a few common questions that you might have that can quickly be answered by our doctor.
What is Pain Management?
The first question that you might have is what pain management is and the process that’s involved. The plan is one that is crafted depending on your symptoms and what would work best for your body and mindset. It’s sometimes more than just physical pain that is treated as doctors can assist with social and emotional pain as well.
When Should I See a Doctor?
If you’re experiencing any kind of pain that you can’t manage on your own, then you need to seek treatment from a doctor who has a variety of methods for treatment. A common question is about how severe the pain should get before you visit a doctor. There’s no clear-cut degree of pain that you have to abide by before seeing a doctor as some people have a higher threshold than others. If you’re suffering and the pain that you have is impacting your daily life, then you need to seek assistance instead of continuing to suffer.
What Can I Expect During a Visit?
When you arrive at the office, you’ll complete a series of forms about your medical history, the severity of your pain, and what caused the pain that you have. Our doctor will likely perform various tests to determine if there are any physical issues along with talking to you about emotional and mental causes that could be behind your pain.
What Treatments are Available?
There are numerous methods of treatment when it comes to pain management. You’ll work with our doctor and team to determine which one gives you the best results as a few different methods might need to be tried before one is found that offers the most benefits. A combination approach is often the best method.
