In the past, most patients in chronic pain were managed by primary care providers.
These new relationship dynamics between the patient, the primary care provider, and the pain specialist have changed the way we treat chronic pain in the 21th century.
The management of chronic pain has taken on a multidisciplinary and multi-treatment approach.
The relationship you develop between you and your pain specialist is a very valuable relationship in the successful management of your pain. If you do not already see a pain specialist, it is important for you to discuss with your primary care physician if having a pain specialist as part of your treatment team is a reasonable next step.
