What should you do if your chronic pain is unbearable?


When chronic pain becomes unbearable you should consider seeking treatment at a pain management clinic. Chronic pain can become overwhelming to the point that it takes over an individual’s life. With treatment at a pain management clinic, such as Mountain View Headache & Spine Institute, doctors do more than treat the symptoms of the pain rather they treat the underlying causes of the pain with a multidisciplinary approach to provide patients with permanent relief from their pain.

Doctors who specialize in pain management evaluate and treat a wide range of pain conditions. Chronic pain, such as low back pain, and sudden pain problems such as headaches are treated by pain management doctors. An outpatient pain clinic can see patients on the same day and allow them to go home. Medications and procedures used by pain management doctors can stop the pain at its source.

Staff at Mountain View Headache & Spine Institute will work with patients to determine a treatment plan to help them take control of their pain with various treatment options including minimally invasive techniques, surgeries, medication management, and more.

What should a new patient ask their pain management physician?


It would be very beneficial if you could start monitoring your symptoms by keeping a ‘pain diary’ once you have made your first appointment with a pain specialist. You should keep track of the pain symptoms, how long they last, and what type of pain they are. You should also note the degree of pain (from 1 to 10, with 10 being the most severe) and if anything reduces or eliminates it. It could be something that you do, such as lying down. The purpose of this blog is to provide your pain specialist with an overview of your pain patterns and how the pain is affecting your daily activities (including sleeping).

You will be expected to ask questions, so don’t just keep a few in mind, as you might forget some, it is best to arrive prepared. There is a limited amount of time for your appointment, so you will not have time to recall what you want to learn. Hence, write down your questions and you will be given the answers in easy-to-understand terms.

When it comes to what questions are appropriate it will depend on the specific nature of your pain condition. You may ask them about any concerns you have regarding your pain or treatment options.

What happens at the first appointment with a pain management physician?


There is more to pain management than just pain relief. In this specialty of medicine, patients with pain-related conditions, such as chronic pain, are treated to reduce pain and improve their quality of life. Physicians who specialize in pain management diagnose, treat, and manage patients’ pain to improve their quality of life.

During your appointment with a pain management doctor, they will perform a physical examination and ask you about your medical history. To diagnose the source of your pain, they may order tests such as blood tests or MRIs. An experienced pain management doctor will create a treatment plan for you after diagnosing your pain. Treatments, therapies, or surgeries may be included in this process.

You can expect your pain management appointment to last around one hour. The doctor will discuss your medical history and your current pain symptoms with you. In addition to a physical examination, the pain management doctor may order tests as well. Blood work or an MRI may be ordered by the doctor to diagnose the pain.
