Re: Need pain managment doctor -asap !!!
Hi darr, I am an intractable pain patient & my dr is a physical medicine & rehabilitation physician MD, a physiatrist & he sees a wide variety of patients for example some are arthritis patients, pain patients, post op joint replacement patients, people with autoimmune diseases that the rheumy has referred to him, neuropathy patients, etc because his goal is to restore & establish functioning to the highest level achievable for patients with disabilities,pain, injuries,diseases,disorders, etc using testing, medicines, PT, rehab, trigger point injections, many modalities but he does not do epidural or facet injections. His practice like most PM&R drs is about 50% acute & chronic pain patients & 50% physical rehabilitation. I have been his patient for 13 years & i am so blessed to have him for my dr. Im sorry that you have endured so much pain & i hope that you find a dr soon that finds a working treatment plan that helps you get relief soon!
