Pain Management is an integral part of the Brain and Spine Center. Whenever possible pain will be handled through appropriate treatment and rehabilitation. Short term and post-operative pain may be treated through medications such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory, or analgesic medications.
Occasionally, there may be a need to treat pain a bit more aggressively, and this will be discussed with the patient and/or referring physician. For long term pain, or pain that does not appear to improve with a standard treatment regimen, patients may be referred to certain specialists in the management of pain.
