Pain management, or pain medicine, is a growing medical specialty dedicated to treating acute, sub-acute, and chronic pain. The goal of pain medicine is to improve patient’s quality of life and help them return to everyday activities without surgery.
California Spine and Pain Institute treats many different types of pain including complex pain syndromes. Our medical providers work with your referring physician including physical and occupational therapists, oncologist, and psychiatrist or psychologist, to provide effective pain management.
One of our pain management specialists will begin care by reviewing your medical history and evaluating your physical and neurological condition in order to pinpoint the source of your pain.
An in-depth discussion of your pain includes its location(s), duration, and intensity. The doctor will ask you to rate your pain on a scale of 0 to 10 with 10 being the worst pain possible. Alternatively, you may be asked to notate on a picture of the front and back of body where you feel pain and designate its type (i.e. burning, sharp) and intensity (1 through 10).
Further evaluation may require a CT scan, MRI, or other imaging studies to further evaluate your pain and diagnose its cause. Many types of minimally invasive spinal injections provide valuable diagnostic information such as a Medial Nerve Branch Block
