At Network Spine our philosophy is to integrate multiple disciplines. Integrated Spine, Pain, and Sports Medicine with drug-free, non-surgical solutions are always considered as the first course of treatment
Pain is the most common reason patients seek medical attention. Pain can be simple or very complex. It can have an obvious source such as a cut, burn or broken bone. Or it can be highly elusive, with no obvious source. When that happens, a wide variety of skills and techniques are required to treat and resolve it. That is what we mean when we say that an interdisciplinary approach is often implemented in the treatment plan for pain management.
The typical pain management team may include all or some of these areas of expertise: Physicians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, clinical psychologists, mental health specialists and massage therapists. Often pain can be resolved quickly, by one practitioner with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), muscle relaxants and/or antidepressants. However, in the case of chronic, long term pain, the coordinated efforts of an interdisciplinary pain management team are usually required.
Pain Management doctors are board-certified in a specialty such as sport injuries, anesthesia, diabetes or oncology. They then undergo an additional one-year fellowship in pain management. The fellowship consists of training in all aspects of pain management. When a board certified physician completes an accredited pain management fellowship, they are eligible for subspecialty board certification in pain management by the American Board of Anesthesiology.
Your pain management specialist will evaluate your particular pain problem by taking a detailed medical history, conducting a physical exam and reviewing any diagnostic tests that you underwent such as X-rays, computed tomography [CAT] scans, or magnetic resonance imaging [MRI] scans.
You will be asked to complete a questionnaire with detailed questions about your pain problem. You should know before your appointment if you will be undergoing a procedure; in that case you may need a driver to take you home.
Your pain physician will provide you with an initial assessment of your pain problem, and perhaps a treatment if indicated. He or she may know exactly what is causing your pain, or may prescribe further diagnostic procedures. In either case, you should have a clearer understanding of the source of your pain, and the course of further evaluation and the treatment that is planned.
