Pain management specialists are medical doctors with advanced training in the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of patients with chronic pain. These physicians can offer a range of treatments to patients with a variety of conditions. Sometimes, pain management doctors treat pain that is caused by an accident, or they may help a patient who is being treated for a disease like cancer. Oftentimes, pain management doctors help people with ongoing pain due to chronic conditions such as arthritis.
At Aspen Orthopedic Specialists, our pain management expert not only knows how to treat pain but also understands that pain is complex and each patient is unique. Our experienced pain management specialist will be able to understand where your pain is coming from and knows the best ways to help reduce or eliminate it by creating a collaborative treatment plan with your unique needs in mind.
