What is a pain clinic?
A pain clinic is often times called a pain management clinic. Pain clinics are health care facilities that primarily only focus on the diagnosis and management/treatment of severe to chronic pain in patients. There are two different kinds of pain management clinics. One type focuses on the diagnosis and procedures for patients to deal with specific types of chronic pain, like neck and back pain. The second type of pain clinic is, at times called, an interdisciplinary clinic. This type of clinic takes an approach that looks at the whole person. In addition to medications that can help control pain symptoms, these types of clinics can also help you manage pain with physical, behavioral, and psychological therapies.
What should I look for when searching for a pain clinic to help manage my pain?
When you or someone you know is searching for a pain clinic, there are a number of things that you will want to look for. First, you will want to work with a doctor or specialist who specifically knows about your unique kind of pain and has experience in managing it. An important question that you will want to ask is, if the doctor has special training and is board-certified in pain management. Once you know this, the next thing you will want to do (as you would with any doctor) is to find someone that you will feel comfortable with. This doctor is someone that you will work with on a regular basis and build a relationship with. So, finding someone that you feel comfortable with is rather important, also, your pain management specialist will be the one who treats your pain and will also coordinate with doctors including physical therapists, rehabilitation, and counseling that will also help assist.
