Pain Medication Management

What is it?

Certain chronic pain conditions may not be amenable to injection therapy and may require medication management.

How it is performed

A balanced multi-modal approach to chronic pain medication is used. This involves finding the right type of medication to treat your specific type of pain. This may or may not include opiate therapy.

What patients are candidates?

Patients who are prescribed chronic pain medication are asked to sign a narcotic agreement, agree to mandatory random drug screens, and are expected to take the medication as prescribed. It is important that only one physician prescribe the patient medications and only one pharmacy fill their physician’s orders.
