Pain management specialists are experts in their ability to relieve physical suffering and improve the quality of life for their patients. Treatments typically include a plan to reduce, relieve and manage pain caused by a personal injury or job-related accident. Pain management professionals come from a wide variety of disciplines, from anesthesiologists to oncologists, surgical specialists to physical therapists. They work alongside many types of medical doctors, as well as chiropractors and acupuncturists, to help patients return to a pain-free life.
Pain management doctors begin with an examination to identify the injury and determine its severity. They may use diagnostic tools such as imaging studies to learn more about the patient’s condition.
With a comprehensive understanding of an injury, the pain management doctor will then create a specialized treatment plan. Common injuries they help include:
- Whiplash, when the head abruptly moves forward or backward, causing the neck to over- or hyper-extend.
- Strained ligaments, when the stress of an injury causes a tear or other damage to the bands of tissues that connect bones.
- Herniated disc, when a soft disc between the bones in the spinal vertebrae slips out of place.
- Spondylolisthesis, when a bone in the spinal vertebrae slips out of place.
Even if your client isn’t suffering from any of the above, it may be a good idea for them to consult with a pain management specialist since it’s common for symptoms to appear days — or even weeks — after an accident. By beginning treatment promptly, your client’s pain will be relieved more quickly and the original injury will not be exacerbated.
