Pain Medicine Treatment for Common Conditions and Symptoms

When a patient suffers from pain, it can affect many different aspects of life, from making daily activities more difficult to causing psychological suffering or depression. At University Hospitals, our pain management specialists formulate individual treatment plans that help control and minimize pain through a combination of therapies.

Types of Pain We Treat

There are many different types of pain. The three main categories we focus on include acute pain, subacute pain and chronic pain.

Procedures and Treatments

For many patients, the first pain management treatment recommended for neck and back pain may be conservative and include interventions such as physical and/or occupational therapy as well as medication management. When pain persists despite these treatments, other interventional procedures may be contemplated.

Before and After Procedure Instructions

These instructions apply to all procedures listed unless otherwise noted.
