What is Pain Management?

Pain Management is a term that describes the diagnostic, interventional treatments and overall monitoring processes used to relieve acute and chronic pain. Effective Pain Management programs involve cooperation between many health care professionals and specialists. This multidisciplinary approach leads to a better, more thorough delivery of care.

Our Pain Management team members consist of primary care physicians, various other specialists, allied health professionals and alternative/complementary medicine practitioners. Our goal is simple, at Loop Medical Center we approach our Pain Management with the dedicated care and intention of improving the quality of life in individuals suffering from severe pain.

Pain Management Process

Typically, an interventional pain physician establishes a diagnosis through physical examination, review of prior medical history, and evaluation of previous treatments. With this information, a plan of care is established. Further testing may be necessary, such as X-ray, MRI, Ultrasound, or lab work, to determine the best course of action. Treatment options may include physical therapy, medications, injections, minimally invasive surgery or counseling.
