Suffering from chronic pain can become completely debilitating. 50 million Americans live with chronic pain, yet many do nothing about it. They have simply accepted it as part of their routine. You should not allow your quality of life to dwindle because of the pain you experience. Perhaps you have gone from one doctor to the next, without any cure, treatment or idea of the cause. It may be time to see a pain management specialist.
More Questions than Answers?
If primary care physicians are unable to identify the cause of your pain or develop a treatment plan, you need to see a pain management specialist. Some doctors may prescribe pain medication, but this is not desirable. Medication does not treat the problem. It only masks it and it can cause alternative problems. You don’t want to cover up pain. You want to treat it.
Consult Your Insurance Provider
Your insurance provider may have specific steps to follow before seeing a specialist. This can include the need for a referral from your primary care physician, so always contact your insurance provider before scheduling an appointment. This way, you’ll know for sure whether or not you’re covered.
