Who Needs Treatment for Chronic Pain?
Only a physician can properly evaluate your symptoms and diagnose your pain. Many forms of chronic and acute pain present complicated symptoms. Despite the many tools and high-quality information available online, “self-diagnosis” of pain symptoms is strongly discouraged. Not only can this approach delay patients from getting appropriate treatment, but “self-diagnosis” does, in some cases, lead to harmful “self-treatment.” If you suffer from…
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Pain from illnesses or injury
- Collision-related injuries
- Degenerative medical conditions
… then you may be a candidate for pain management. Call 1-866-431-WELL for more information.
