What do Pain Management Specialists Do?
A pain management specialist is a medical doctor who has received additional training in diagnosing and treating various conditions that cause pain. Specifically, many pain management doctors care for patients with nerve damage and orthopedic injuries that trigger symptoms which are often difficult to treat. If you are experiencing disruptive pain from a complex issue, your primary care physician may refer you to a pain management doctor for more specialized treatment.
