Pain Management Q&A

What is pain management?

Pain management is a combination of services with the common goal of helping make your daily life with chronic or acute pain more manageable. Since unmanaged or mismanaged pain can affect your work, energy, sleep, and relationships, it’s essential to work with your providers to build a plan that works for you.

Effective pain management doesn’t look the same for everyone. After a careful exam, the team at Vantage Medical Associates PC makes or confirms a diagnosis. They might use diagnostic tools like blood tests or imaging procedures to reach a diagnosis or to rule out other possible causes and contributing factors of your pain.

Once the team makes a diagnosis, they create your personalized pain management plan that meets your preferences and needs. There are lots of in-office procedures, medications, and rehab choices for managing your pain. You might need to try a few different combinations before finding one that works best.

Who can benefit from pain management?

Pain is a valuable sensation. It helps you know when something is wrong in your body that you need to take care of. For example, pain tells you when to remove your hand from a hot surface or get help when you’ve broken a bone.

But ongoing or severe pain goes beyond the scope of benefiting you. Finding a way to deal with it becomes crucial. You should come in for a pain management consultation at Vantage Medical Associates PC if you experience:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Low back pain
  • Shoulder pain
  • Leg pain
  • Sciatica
  • Fibromyalgia

Chances are, there are lots of ways to relieve your pain that you might not have considered on your own. With help from the Vantage Medical Associates PC team, you can ease your pain and improve your mobility, sleep, and energy level.
