Pain Medicine is a medical specialty that involves the prevention, evaluation, treatment, and rehabilitation of individuals in pain.
Pain Medicine Specialists at TPMG use a broad-based approach to treat a variety of pain disorders and conditions, including back pain, neck pain, sciatica, bulging disks, degenerative disc disease, pinched nerves, joint pain, and neuropathy. The pain medicine specialist may order physical therapy, perform interventional procedures, and/or prescribe pain-reducing medication. TPMG Pain Medicine specialists are not accepting new patients whose sole desire is an opioid refill.
Pain Medicine specialists typically formulate comprehensive treatment plans, which consider the patients’ cultural contexts, as well as the special needs of the pediatric and geriatric populations. Evaluation techniques include interpretation of historical data, review of previous laboratory results, assessment of behavioral, social, occupational, and avocational issues, and interview and examination of the patient by the pain specialist.
