How Do I Find a Pain Clinic?

Pain is the feeling of discomfort, disturbance, and suffering caused in the body by actual or potential tissue damage or disease. It is one of the most common symptoms of illness and injury, and it is often associated with a specific part of the body. However, pain is not a disease; it is a symptom, a result of a problem in the body or mind. Pain can be aching or a “pins and needles” sensation (paresthesia), and it can also be a throbbing or a burning sensation.

When should you see a doctor for pain?


Most types of pain are mild and go away after a few days with at-home treatments, such as rest, hot/cold therapy, elevating the painful area, and compression. However, if these treatments do not provide relief, or if the pain is severe, it should be treated by a pain management specialist as soon as possible. Go to the doctor for pain when:

• It is severe
• It lasts longer than two weeks
• It causes significant swelling
• It interferes with day-to-day functioning
• It causes sleeping problems
• It is accompanied by the symptoms of infection, such as redness, swelling, sensitivity to touch, fever, profuse sweating, discolorations
• The injured area looks deformed
• It limits the range of motion and mobility

What Is a Pain Clinic?


A pain clinic is a multidisciplinary health care team that focuses on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of pain. A pain clinic can be an independent medical practice or a department within a larger facility such as a hospital or medical center. The team at a pain clinic can include doctors such as anesthesiologists, surgeons, and emergency medicine physicians, as well as other specialists such as physical therapists, psychologists, and social workers. Patients with chronic pain often see a pain management specialist, who can offer a variety of diagnostic tests and treatments aimed at reducing or eliminating pain. They also provide a wide range of pain management services, such as physical therapy, behavioral therapy, and other techniques designed to reduce pain. In addition to this, pain management clinics often provide a variety of diagnostic tests, such as X-rays and ultrasound, to help diagnose the cause of the pain.

How Do I Find a Pain Clinic?


To find a pain clinic, patients can receive a referral from a doctor or local medical facility. When choosing a pain clinic that is right for you, it is imperative to find one that has experience treating your specific condition or type of pain; that way, you can receive the best treatment. Doctors who specialize in treating your specific type of pain can provide a higher level of care and have more experience than other pain management specialists in handling your situation. It is also important to find a pain management specialist that is board-certified in pain management. You should also look for a pain management specialist that you feel comfortable with; they will be your partner in helping you find the best treatments for managing pain and will work alongside you for as long as you need—months or even years. A good pain management program will create an individualized plan based on your unique needs; they understand that one-size-fits-all initiatives are ineffective because everyone is different and experiences pain in a unique way.
