The first step to relieving the acute or chronic pain you are living with begins with a complete and precise assessment of the acute or chronic pain you are living with.
There is no way to pinpoint the exact location of the pain or to calculate the exact level of pain so, the doctors must depend on the description offered by the patients regarding the kind of pain, where it’s located and how often it occurs.
“Pain Management”'s Pain Management Services bring you a wide array of tools and therapies that are intended to aid in the reduction or elimination of your pain. Each patient meets with a doctor who will evaluate and diagnose the causes of pain and review any current conditions that may be affecting the pain.
In the preliminary evaluation, your specialist will learn about your symptoms and enquire about such things as the location, frequency, intensity, radiation and length of time your pain lasts. They will also take a complete history of illnesses, injuries and any surgeries.
