Pain Management Q&A
What is pain management?
Pain management is an area of medicine that specializes in diagnosing and treating pain-causing conditions. That includes acute and chronic pain.
Acute pain is the sudden and severe pain that occurs from an injury or medical condition. This type of pain usually goes away after the underlying cause resolves.
Chronic pain is pain that lasts three or more months. You may develop chronic pain after an acute pain condition or from an underlying health issue such as arthritis. Chronic pain affects your physical and psychological well-being.
Am I a candidate for pain management?
The Southern Tennessee Spine and Pain Center team determines if you’re a candidate for their pain management services after a comprehensive evaluation. The highly trained pain physicians care for both acute and chronic pain conditions.
The pain management practice often treats:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Knee and hip pain
- Sacroiliac (SI) joint dysfunction
If you have pain that affects your daily life and traditional treatments aren’t helping, or you want to stop using pain medication, the team at Southern Tennessee Spine and Pain Center can help you.
