Pain management solutions can range depending on the type and source of the chronic pain. The important part of the pain management process is to get an accurate and full diagnosis. The pain specialist might use a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test. The test uses a magnetic field and pulses of radio wave energy to make pictures of organs and structures inside the body. This is a very useful piece of the puzzle that helps the pain specialist make a diagnosis.
Aside from the MRI, a full medical history is usually taken and any relevant visit notes from the primary care physician or the referring doctor are reviewed. If need be, the pain specialist may need to consult with the referring doctor in order to fully understand the pain patient’s full condition. Collaboration with any physicians that are involved in the patient’s treatment is very important.
