Choosing A Pain Specialist For Your Back Is An Important Decision. With So Many Back Doctors, How Can You Decide Which One Is Right For You?

Here Are 5 Key Points To Consider When Selecting A Back Pain Specialist

Board Certification and Training

When looking for a back pain doctor, it is important to select a pain specialist who is qualified and has the appropriate background training. Board Certification in Pain Medicine is a key qualification to look for. Board Certification requires extensive specialty-specific training and ongoing education to stay current on the most recent advances in pain medicine. Choose a physician who has completed advanced fellowship training to learn the safest, most effective, and most sophisticated techniques to target back pain. At VIP Medical Group’s Pain Treatment Clinics, all of our back pain doctors are Board Certified in Pain Medicine and Anesthesiology, meaning that they adhere to the highest medical standards. In addition, all of our physicians did an advanced fellowship specializing in Pain Medicine at Harvard before joining our pain center team.

Treatment Options and Comprehensive care.

Back pain is one of the most complex medical issues to treat and is unique to each patient. Choose a back pain expert who will develop a comprehensive care plan for you that utilizes different treatment modalities. Often this will involve physical therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture, nutrition, and/or procedures. It’s important your back pain physician discuss different options for how to treat your back pain—pain often responds best when more than one approach is used, so choose a physician who will offer you different options. It’s also important that your back pain doctor respect your personal preferences regarding your care. Pain can be treated in a variety of different ways, so if you don’t agree with your pain physician’s approach, find someone whose style is in line with your values and personal goals.

Physician Availability and Responsiveness.

It’s important that you have access to your back pain physician! Pain can often flare up unexpectedly. It’s essential that you can communicate with your back pain physician during those times and make an urgent appointment if necessary. At the Pain Treatment Clinic, our patients are able to make appointments with our physicians right away, often the same day. If you have a question or concern, staff should immediately notify your pain doctor and get an answer to you right away. The best doctor in the world can’t help you if you can never get in touch, so choose a physician who is available and responsive to your needs.

Patient-Physician Relationship.

It’s essential to choose a back pain physician who listens to you and understands your concerns. Your physician should take the time to listen to how you’re feeling and be receptive to your thoughts about your treatment plan. Only you can assess how your pain is responding. It’s important that your back pain physician makes adjustments to your treatment plan based on the feedback you provide. If they don’t, seek out someone who will take the time to listen to you.

Evaluate the Entire Practice Environment

Choosing the right doctor to treat your back pain is essential, but choosing a staff that is professional, respectful, and knowledgeable is also important. Office staff members are a fundamental part of the care team and can influence your overall experience at a back pain center. Similarly, selecting a physician who works in an office environment that is clean, spacious, with modern equipment is also key. Choose a pain clinic that is concerned for your overall health and takes the appropriate precautions to keep you safe.
