Multidisciplinary Pain Management
The Augusta Health Pain Management Clinic offers a multidisciplinary approach to pain control. This means we have many members of our professional team. This includes an on-staff Anesthesiologist, Physical Medicine Specialist, and Nurse Practitioner, as well as consultants in Neurology, Physical and Occupational Therapy, and other specialties as needed.
Plan of Treatment
Patients are seen based on a referral from their primary care physician or specialist. The first visit at the pain clinic will include an initial evaluation, medical history questionnaire, interpretation of tests and x-rays, and a physical examination. The practitioner will then discuss the recommended plan of treatment.
Your new Plan of Treatment might include:
- Medication Management
- Nerve Blocks
- Implantable Pain Control Devices
- Physical Therapy
Your pain management team will work together with you and your primary care physician or specialist to determine the source of your pain and how to best meet your pain management and medical needs.
You and the professional team at the Augusta Health Pain Management Clinic will agree on your Plan of Care. This Plan will be tailored to helping you understand and manage your pain. You, as part of the treatment team, must get involved in the effort and accept responsibility for following your Individualized Treatment Plan.
