Helping You Manage Both Chronic and Acute Pain
The Pain Diagnostic and Management Center at The Medical Center at Bowling Green specializes in the treatment of both chronic and acute pain.
Chronic pain normally lasts for three months or longer and may vary in intensity. The causes of chronic pain vary and can include arthritis, or nerve injury, damage or compression. Acute pain is usually intense and associated with an injury. As the injured tissue or muscles heal over time, the pain normally subsides.
Proper diagnosis is important to managing pain, and the anesthesiologists and registered nurses at the Pain Center will first take steps to properly diagnose what type of pain you are suffering and its possible causes. Then, a pain management plan will be developed on an individual basis.
The center does not manage prescriptions for pain medications. We treat adult and geriatric patients and appointments are made only after physician referral.
