25 Apr 3 Reasons a Pain Specialist can help you in Joint Pain Relief
If you or a loved one is in pain, you may be wondering who can help you find relief. For most bone and joint pain cases, the answer may be a pain management specialist. Pain medicine didn’t exist as a specialty, 20 years ago, but now it’s advancing faster than many other medical specialties.
A pain management specialist could be your way to a pain-free life. Here’s why.
- Pain management doctors or specialists are specially trained to diagnose and treat bone and joint pain. Pain is a complex thing but Board-certified pain management doctors with fellowship training in chronic interventional pain can help you find relief.
- Pain specialists are skilled in cutting-edge pain management therapies and procedures, such as spinal cord stimulation, intrathecal pain pumps and more.
- Pain specialists use a multidisciplinary approach to treat pain. They treat the whole person and not simply the symptoms. Treatment for chronic pain could include minimally invasive interventional procedures, such as injections and nerve blocks, conservative methods, such as medication management and physical therapy and sometimes, minimally invasive surgery.
Pain specialists also employ innovative treatment methods to treat chronic pain, even in conditions where no other treatments have been able to help the patient obtain relief, such as failed back surgery and degenerative diseases.
