Evaluation Q & A

What is pain management?

Pain management is a specialized medical discipline that focuses on diagnosing, preventing, and managing painful health conditions.

Also known as pain medicine, pain management doctors offer several benefits, including:

  • Identifying the source of your pain
  • Offering conservative treatment strategies to help you avoid surgery
  • Helping to manage stubborn pain that doesn’t respond to traditional therapies
  • Providing long-term medication management assistance for chronic pain conditions
  • Recommending innovative therapies for your pain, including conservative or surgical treatment

At Comprehensive Pain Management, the team at Comprehensive Pain Management create a personalized approach to managing your condition after providing a thorough pain management evaluation. The providers can also perform workers’ compensation evaluations.

What can I expect during my initial pain management evaluation?

To identify the best pain management solution for your unique condition, Dr. Chan, Dr. Shwartzman or the team at Comprehensive Pain Management reviews your medical history and your past tests, such as X-rays, CAT scans, and MRIs. They also conduct a complete physical examination to identify the cause of your pain.

Your pain management consultation might also include:

  • Ordering laboratory testing and bloodwork
  • Requesting additional digital imaging, like MRIs, X-rays, or CAT scans
  • Conducting nerve and muscle studies
  • Performing a full musculoskeletal evaluation
  • Having neurological tests for cognitive disorders, dementia, or head injuries

The team also asks that you fill out and bring their “Pain and Wellness Center Patient Questionnaire” to your appointment. This evaluation provides your doctor with a deeper understanding of you and your pain problem.

Based on your pain management evaluation, the team at Comprehensive Pain Management can reach a diagnosis and develop a customized program to target your specific pain.

What pain management techniques can I expect?

Dr. Chan, Dr. Shwartzman and the team at Comprehensive Pain Management provide a wide range of pain management therapies depending on your unique condition.
