Medication Management Q&A

What is medication management?

Medication management refers to the use of various types of over-the-counter (OTC) or prescription drugs to treat health conditions. Medications ease symptoms and are part of the treatment plan for many health problems and diseases, including acute and chronic pain conditions. 


The Center for Pain Treatment is a pain management practice that takes a conservative approach to care. The team understands how the use of certain types of pain medications, like opioids, can lead to other health problems. 


They create plans that use the most conservative treatments available while providing you with the best possible relief from your discomfort. 

Am I a candidate for medication management?

The team at the Center for Pain Treatment conducts a thorough evaluation when you come in for help with your pain to determine the best course of action. They treat many common pain-causing conditions, including:


  • Spinal stenosis
  • Migraine headaches
  • Radiculopathy (pinched nerve)
  • Sciatica
  • Arthritis
  • Facet joint syndrome
  • Degenerative disc disease (DDD)
  • Complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS)


If you experience pain in your back, such as with sciatica in the lower back, neck, knee, shoulder, or any joint, the team has a solution for relief.


When it comes to pain and medication management, the team aims to find the root cause of your discomfort, so you get targeted treatment. Many of these painful conditions are chronic, and finding the right combination of medications and interventional pain procedures may help you get the relief you need for a better quality of life.


If you have pain and your current treatment plan isn’t working, the team at the Center for Pain Treatment can help.

What can I expect from medication management?

You can expect patient-centered medication management at the Center for Pain Treatment. Before making any specific recommendations, the team conducts a thorough initial evaluation. They review your symptoms, the treatments you’ve tried in the past, and your goals.


They conduct a physical exam and may request diagnostic tests, such as imaging tests or blood work, to confirm or rule out a diagnosis. The team talks to you about your conservative medication management options, and together, you create a plan that includes safe and effective treatments.
