We all experience pain to some degree, but for some, pain not only affects their lives, it becomes the focal point of it. It can make their lives seem unbearable. For those people, the relief they so desperately need is not a world away – it’s close to home.
Self Regional Healthcare’s Pain Management Center has a multi-specialty medical staff of pain physicians and a clinical psychologist. Our doctors are not only skilled in treating pain, but also in helping diagnose the source of complex medical and psychophysiologic disorders.
After review of the medical history, prior diagnostics and a physical examination, a decision is made whether additional studies are necessary. Following a thorough assessment of the nature and etiology of pain, we develop a comprehensive pain treatment plan, beginning with the most conservative options.
At the request of a referring physician, we will assume responsibility for prescribing needed analgesics, including maintenance and management of controlled substances. We maintain prompt and frequent communication with referring physicians. In addition, our doctors are on call and available to respond to patient emergencies 24 hours a day.
Pain medicine is a recognized medical specialty. Our doctors are extensively trained and board certified in pain medicine, anesthesiology and internal medicine. They’ve authored or edited 11 medical textbooks and more than 100 research journal publications on the diagnosis and treatment of pain and related symptoms.
