About this program

Pain management treatments are primarily performed by a physiatrist, anesthesiologist, orthopedic surgeon, or neurosurgeon. Pain management involves finding the best form of treatment for patients with pain due to injury or a condition. Very often a patient will try several forms of treatment to help with the pain, understanding the purpose is not necessarily to correct the problem but to manage the pain associated with it. Attempts to treat pain can include physical or occupational therapy, over the counter or prescription medication, neurostimulators, and injections. Many insurance companies are now requiring conservative treatment options to be performed over a period of time before more invasive procedures, including surgery, are scheduled. Insurance company policies spell out the pain management requirements to meet medical necessity.

This webinar will take each step of the patient’s journey in pain management from their first visit with their provider through the possible treatment options that they may receive, to ultimately helping them become pain free, or seeking more invasive treatment for the condition.
