Diagnosis of Chronic Pain Disorders
Because pain is often the result of a neurological disorder, neurologists by the nature of their training, are often the best suited specialists in determining the cause of chronic pain disorders. Far too often, patients are given pain medications or sent to pain specialists for interventional procedures that simply mask the pain before the likely cause is identified and properly treated.
Management of Chronic Pain Disorders
At our clinic, we recognize the profound effect pain has on a person’s quality of life, and very often recommend a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. In addition to medication management, there are various interventional procedures used to treat pain including nerve blocks, nerve radiofrequency ablation, epidural steroid injections, nerve stimulator implants, and joint injections. Dr. Masood will also work with various disciplines including physical therapists and pain psychologists to ensure your pain is dealt with in the most comprehensive way possible.
