If you’ve been thinking about going to a pain management clinic, then you might have some questions about how they treat patients.

Pain management clinics have ways of treating pain that are effective, minimally invasive at worst, and very modern. These methods may be able to help you avoid surgery for your pain. Modern Pain Management offers these treatments, and we’d like to give you a better idea of what to expect when you come visit our clinic and inquire about treatment. Here’s a bit of a Q&A on pain management clinics and the treatments they offer!
What do they do in pain management?
In pain management, doctors help patients with acute (sudden) or chronic (long-lasting) pain. For instance, a patient with acute pain from a recent injury will benefit from immediate pain relief medication. A patient with chronic pain from a condition like arthritis will likely benefit from treatments that control inflammation and pain. Modern Pain Management provides pain management treatments like injections, osteopathic manipulative treatment, and more.
When should I get pain management?
Consider pain management if you have acute pain that occurred suddenly from, say, a minor injury, or if you have chronic pain that has lasted for three months or longer, possibly due to a condition like a back problem. Even if your pain has lasted for a long while now, a pain management clinic may still be able to help. If your pain is significant or seems untreatable, consider pain management.
If you have any of the following conditions or a similar/related condition, you may benefit a great deal from pain management:
- Back/neck/spine pain
- A herniated disc
- Knee pain
- Arm/shoulder pain
- Hip pain
- A recent injury causing you pain
- Cancer pain
You can contact us if you have a different kind of pain or condition we haven’t mentioned. We can almost certainly help.
What services do pain management clinics offer?
Our clinic provides a great number of services for each of the issues we mentioned above. Our services may work for you if more conservative treatments like physical therapy or over-the-counter medications haven’t worked for you. Here’s a list of some of the more common services we provide:

What happens at your first pain management appointment?
When you come see us for the first time, we’ll introduce you to a professional who can help you and provide an evaluation. Your evaluation will likely include a physical exam, questions about your medical history, a pain assessment, and diagnostic tests or imaging (like an X-ray). We may be able to provide a diagnosis. You’ll be able to ask us about how we can help you and we’ll tell you more about our treatments and therapies. After that, we’ll proceed accordingly.
