Pain management specialists treat pain using a variety of methods such as tablets, injections and patches.
You may need to consult a pain management specialist if you suffer from chronic pain in any region of the body. Conditions such as arthritis, cancer, pain, back and neck pain, headache and neuropathic pain may be referred to the pain team when regular painkillers have not worked.
Spinal Surgery- Spinal surgeons specialise in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal problems of the spine. Surgeries such as spinal decompression, removal of intervertebral disc (slipped disc) and nerve root blocks for chronic pain make up a large portion of spinal surgery.
