When the only two options presented to you for chronic pain is invasive surgery or addictive pain medication over an indefinite period, it can feel like choosing between two evils. However, we are happy to let you know that you will have far more innovative and effective options to choose from when you come to OmniSpine Pain Management! Our pain management doctors view surgery as a last resort and offer a broad range of effective and non-addictive pain relief treatments.
What does a pain management doctor do for you?
A pain management doctor can evaluate, diagnose, and treat a broad range of pain issues, including the underlying causes for your pain, whether that involves a serious condition or a minor tweak, such as a change in your gait or posture. Pain management doctors have expertise in dealing with numerous conditions, including those that cause pain from tissue injuries, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis, nervous system disorders, such as post-stroke pain, multiple sclerosis (MS), or spinal cord injuries, or those complex pain disorders with various causes and locations.
In order to treat pain conditions properly, pain management doctors conduct a thorough analysis of what is causing your pain. Depending on what they find as the cause, treatment could involve any of the following:
- Chiropractic care
- Dietary changes
- Injections, including:
- Botox injections
- Corticosteroid injections
- Epidural steroid injections (ESIs)
- Facet joint injections
- Sacroiliac (SI) joint injections
- Toradol injections
- Trigger point injections
- Viscosupplementation injections
- Massage therapy
- Nerve blocks
- Pain medication, including anti-inflammatory medicine or muscle relaxants
- Physical therapy
- Radiofrequency nerve ablation
- Spinal cord stimulation
- Weight loss
What do pain management doctors prescribe?
Pain management doctors aim to provide treatment that addresses the underlying causes of your pain and not merely the pain itself. As such, you do not need to be concerned about taking opioids or addictive pain relief medicine when visiting a pain management doctor, as they will first seek holistic options to relieve pain and address the cause of your pain. Moreover, if you are dealing with an overreliance upon addictive pain medication, our pain management doctors can also help with that at OmniSpine Pain Management!
At OmniSpine Pain Management, our pain management doctors will first address your pain with anti-inflammatory medication, muscle relaxants, or injections that numb or block the pain. More advanced procedures will be pursued after the pain is addressed to address the underlying cause of your pain, such as viscosupplementation, radiofrequency ablation (RFA), spinal cord stimulation, or another treatment.
Is a referral needed for pain management?
For insurance purposes, if you are a member of a health maintenance organization (HMO) or a point of service (POS) medical insurance plan, you may need a referral from your primary care physician (PCP) to be covered for pain management services. However, if you are a member of a preferred provider organization (PPO) or an exclusive provider organization (EPO) plan, you may not require a referral to be covered. In any case, it is best to contact your insurance provider directly about their referral policies concerning pain management doctors.
At OmniSpine Pain Management, we are happy to see anyone who makes an appointment with us! We do not require referrals or insurance coverage before we see patients.
