Why do I have chronic pain?

Your provider helps pinpoint the cause of chronic pain by reviewing your symptoms and medical history. They ask about your medications, lifestyle habits, past injuries, and family history of disease. They also check your vital signs, complete physical and neurological exams, and may order blood tests, X-rays, MRIs, CT scans, or other imaging procedures. 

After finding the cause of your discomfort, a specialist tailors a pain-relieving treatment that’s best for your personalized needs.
