What are pain management doctors like?

All are different...: But they share the fact that the focus of their practice is on treating pain. Some use only medical management, which is mostly medication and physical therapy, where others use interventional techniques to treat pain. Most will use some combination of both. Recommend going to someone who has special training in pain or has experience in treating pain. Hope that helps!

How do I have a pain management discussion with my doctor?

Just ask: If you are taking pain meds, it's a pain management discussion. Topics can be "how to use less, " "preparing for surgery, " "referral for pain procedures, " "inadequate control, " etc. If they write the script, they'll want to discuss any changes. If you have pain, they will work it up and treat it. Best to just be upfront and ask.

A Bunch: Chiropractors limit (or should) their practice to manual manipulation of joints. Be wary of other "offerings" such as acupuncture, traction decompression, herbs and vitamins.
