What does pain management often include?

Pain management encompasses a wide variety of management approaches, which include medications, therapies, exercise, and joint injections. These management approaches will be based on the cause of your pain since chronic or acute pain can be from injuries, conditions, disorders, and diseases. Pain specialists may use a combination of these methods to manage pain levels, or eliminate pain if possible. Since pain is unique to the individual, one treatment that works best for another may not be the best option for you, our specialists will make sure to personalize your comprehensive treatment plan and revise it when needed so you can continue to have improvements in your overall health.

Since all people feel pain differently, it can be hard as an individual to determine if your pain is worth seeing a pain management specialist, but it can be beneficial for all pain types and pain levels. Since pain presents differently in everyone, the only people who will be able to determine your exact cause of pain are medical professionals like those at OmniSpine Pain Management. Some conditions that can be treated include endometriosis, autoimmune disorders, arthritis, fibromyalgia, facial pain from dental disorders or root canals, neuropathy, migraine headaches, Crohn’s disease, and back pain from conditions such as herniated disks, sciatica or other back-related conditions.

What do you do when your chronic pain is unbearable?

In a situation where you feel your pain is unbearable most will reach for the phone and contact emergency services, however, some may feel that it doesn’t warrant a trip to the emergency room and would rather speak with a specialist or try to manage it at home. If your pain has come on quickly and it’s a pain you have never experienced before, it is worth seeking emergency care to make sure that what you are experiencing is not a medical emergency.

Suppose the pain you are feeling is in the region of your regular chronic or acute pain, but it’s much worse than you’ve experienced before. In that case, it is important to reach out to a pain specialist like those at OmniSpine Pain Management, as they may be able to recommend a different treatment than your current plan. If you are taking pain medications and they are not relieving the pain it may also be worth seeing our pain specialists, as you may need to change your medication doses if you have been taking them long-term, or there could be newer therapies available that have been shown to help with chronic pain that were not available when you were first diagnosed. Since chronic pain can have many underlying causes, a pain specialist is going to be the best place to look for care.

Does insurance cover pain management?

For those who seek pain management, costs associated with the care can be a concern for many as they may choose to suffer as they feel that they cannot afford treatment. Thankfully, many insurance providers in the United States recognize that pain management is important for an individual’s well-being and overall quality of life. Because of this many insurance providers will cover partial costs, or all the costs so the patient can focus on their health rather than adding additional stress which can potentially exacerbate symptoms in patients. Most insurance providers will have the ability as they may be able to provide an estimate on how much you will have to pay and the exact amount of coverage available and if you are required to pay some costs upfront, or co-pay.
