Are you looking for pain management doctor that can truly understand and solve your recurring pain problem?
Many, many people will at some point in their life feel recurring pain. If you do sports, the chance is even higher. If you smoke or drink, that can increase your chances as well. If you’ve had or are going to have a surgery, that could also increase your chances.
The bottom line is, if you’re feeling a lot of pain, you’re not alone. Seek a qualified expert immediately. Don’t wait, as the longer you wait the worse the symptoms will get.
Getting Ready for Your First Appointment
Begin this process by talking to your general practitioner or family doctor. Your family doctor will help explain what kind of issues you’re experiencing and help verify that you really do need to see a specialist. Get a written recommendation from your doctor. Having a recommendation from your doctor can help pain management specialists get reimbursement from insurance plans.
Before your first visit, make sure to call us and let us know of any pre-existing medical conditions you might have. Let us know of any and all medications you’re taking. Then book a time to come in.
How to Know When You Need a Pain Management Specialist
Family doctors and general practitioners are trained to handle a wide range of different issues. However, they’re primarily trained to deal with day to day medical problems. When a serious and in-depth medical issue arises, a GP often has to refer their patients to a more specialized doctor.
Having recurring pain is one such ailment. A GP simply isn’t trained in all the specialized techniques and methodologies a pain management expert needs to know. Talk to your family doctor about whether or not it makes sense to visit pain management doctor. If you’re having recurring pains, your doctor will usually agree that it’s a good idea to seek outside help.
The Diagnostic Process
We begin the diagnostic process by asking you a wide array of questions. We want to figure out exactly what’s going on in your body and the first tool we use is your own experience. Where does it hurt? Do you feel anything else in the vicinity? When did the pain start? What caused the pain? So on and so forth.
We’ll then physically examine your body and also often use external tools like Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scanning and CAT scanning to get a better picture of what the issues are.
Finally, we’ll pinpoint the exact issue that’s causing you your pain. Then we’ll lay out all your options for you and together make a decision on the best way to treat the pain you’re experiencing. We’ll answer any questions you have, then begin the treatment process.
Choosing the Right Pain Management Doctor
Choosing a great doctor for pain management is an extremely challenging task. Since you’re not a medical expert and there are no objective listings of doctor quality, how do you make such a monumental decision?
Start by examining the credentials of the person you’re considering. Do they have what it takes to handle your kind of case? Do they have the requisite experience in this area?
Then meet the doctor and make sure that you have trust and rapport. Make sure you feel like this person really understands where you’re coming from and cares about your well being. If your doctor matches both of these criteria, then they’re probably the right choice.
