Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management, or pain medicine, is a medical discipline focused on diagnosing, preventing, and treating painful health conditions.

In addition to identifying the source of your pain, pain management can:

  • Recommend the best course of conservative or surgical treatment for your pain
  • Help you avoid surgery using conservative treatment approaches
  • Manage stubborn pain conditions resistant to traditional therapies
  • Offer long-term medication management for chronic pain conditions
  • Provide rehabilitation after surgery

At the Carolinas Center for Advanced Management of Pain, the skilled team offers a variety of pain management techniques to address the full range of chronic pain problems and spinal diseases.

How are chronic pain conditions diagnosed?

To provide the most effective pain management solutions, your doctor performs a complete medical or surgical examination to identify the source of your pain. This might include:

  • A psychological evaluation
  • Laboratory testing, MRIs, or X-rays
  • EMG and nerve conduction studies
  • A complete musculoskeletal evaluation
  • Neuropsychological exams for head injuries, dementia, or cognitive disorders

The experienced doctors at the Carolinas Center for Advanced Management of Pain also offer independent medical and workers’ comp evaluations.

Because of the deep connection between chronic pain and psychological distress, they also have a psychiatrist and psychologist on staff to provide counseling and support as well as SSI, disability, and workers’ comp psychological evaluations.
