The Origins of Pain

Pain management doctors treat many causes for pain and just as many descriptions. Pain may be:

  • Acute, sharp, and strong, usually lasting less than six months;
  • Chronic, lasting more than three months, getting progressively worse, even after the healing process begins;
  • Cancer pain that changes from inflammatory to compression and neuropathic.

The source of pain varies tremendously. It can come from a multitude of origins, including:

  • Accidents;
  • Surgery;
  • Metabolic issues;
  • Cancer;
  • Nerve damage;
  • No obvious reason.

Coordination of Services Required

Pain management doctors must work well with other specialties when treating every kind of pain. While an oncologist is a primary physician who treats cancer and its accompanying pain, other specialties that typically involve some level of pain management intervention include:

Tools to Treat You Holistically

Pain management involves receiving assessments to determine the extent of your discomfort, its source, what underlying conditions may be contributing to it, and which treatments are the most appropriate. Holistic pain management doctors treat the whole patient. This is particularly important when you experience chronic pain.

If your pain isn’t connected to a cancer diagnosis, the multidisciplinary approach works best. Some of the assessment tools your pain management doctors may rely on include:

  • A thorough history, including social, familial, and physical background;
  • Nerve conduction exams;
  • Blood tests such as for rheumatoid arthritis and HIV;
  • Imaging to include MRI and CT scans;
  • Psychological evaluation.

Pain Treatment Plans Vary

The first line of defense for pain management is to treat underlying conditions revealed during your extensive assessments. Referrals through a trusted network of physicians help you receive the best treatment for your issues.

Pain management doctors also have an array of tools at their disposal to treat acute and chronic pain. These treatments relieve you of the discomfort, allowing you to heal properly or adapt to an ongoing situation.

Some of the most common conditions that pain doctors treat include:

Some of the most common forms of treatment used by your pain relief doctor include:

  • Spinal injections;
  • Nerve blocks;
  • TENS units;
  • Exercise plans;
  • Over-the-counter medications;
  • Heat and ice;
  • Prescription pain pills.

When Pain Relief Poses Risks

It’s recommended that you build a relationship with a pain relief doctor that you can trust. Find one that offers a clean and safe environment and a supportive team to assist you throughout your treatment. With most invasive and even non-invasive treatments, there are risks. One of the most common in pain management is trigger point injections.

Trigger points are spots on your skeletal muscles identified as sources of pain. Injections of steroids or numbing medications may be used as part of your treatment to reduce pain and allow you to heal. Non-sterile conditions, accidents when the needle breaks off in the muscle, and poor injection placement can all result in infections that cause further pain, but these are extremely rare.

Fighting Addiction

Because of the addictive nature of pain-relieving opioids and the nation’s focus on addiction prevention, your pain management treatment may involve a test to verify that you and your family members do not develop life-threatening addictions as a result of your pain management treatments.

The best way to ensure your safety is through a urine drug test, which allows your doctor to detect misuse early enough to prevent future problems. When addiction is suspected, your pain management specialists can test for relapse and use the results to develop further relapse-prevention plans.

Visit our pain management clinic to get the pain care you need in the safe and reassuring hands of the best pain physicians in Brooklyn, NY.
