Why see a pain management physician?
Board-certified pain management physicians like Dr. Glener will first diagnose the pain generator through a combination of history taking, physical examination, and diagnostic testing, including imaging studies like x-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computerized tomography (CT), diagnostic nerve blocks, nerve conduction velocities, electromyogram, and laboratory studies.
Once the pain generator has been identified, Dr. Glener will formulate a treatment plan customized for each individual patient. Treatment plans usually include a combination of interventional procedures, where nerves or joints are injected with local anesthetics and/or steroids to decrease pain and inflammation, medications, and physical therapy to provide lasting relief for patients who suffer from acute and chronic pain.
The ultimate goal is to decrease or eliminate pain and improve the quality of life.
