Pain management consultants work with a range of specialists across the hospital, and often patients are referred to a pain management consultant from orthopaedics, neurosurgery and spinal surgery.
Pain management treatments are not restricted to specific conditions but are an option for anyone suffering from unmanaged pain.
One of the most common causes of unmanaged pain is chronic musculoskeletal disorders such as back or neck pain, perhaps associated with radiating pain from an irritated or compressed neural tissue.
Private pain management treatments offered at Ross Hall Hospital for these conditions:
Often, imaging will already have been undertaken from previous appointments, but your pain management consultant will be able to request any additional scans that might be required to assist a diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
Treatments offered at Ross Hall Hospital include:
Pain management also includes some of the mental aspects that might be making pain feel worse, so Ross Hall Hospital provides support and guidance for anxiety and stress management.
Diagnosis, consultations and treatment will be tailored to you and be delivered under the leadership of your consultant, supported by the experienced multidisciplinary team at Ross Hall Hospital.
Your initial consultation with a specialist pain management physician will consist of a full assessment of your condition. This might include a physical examination if required.
MRI uses a magnetic field to create a detailed image of the inside of your body, invaluable in the diagnosis, management and treatment of pain. Usually, MRI scans are available within 5-10 days from your initial consultation and are primarily used to look for nerve entrapment. If you are experiencing any spinal pain, you will certainly have an MRI scan.
Patients also have fast access to other diagnostics that may be required:
Your consultant will then examine the scans to see if there are visible issues that might be the cause of your pain. Once the consultant has seen the scan, they will be better informed, and a second physical examination will be effective to determine the appropriate next steps.
If further testing, injection therapy, surgery or referral to another specialist within the hospital is required, we’ll provide clarity and answer any questions you might have.
They will also conduct a review of your current medication and work with other specialists to create a tailored treatment plan which includes medication, treatment and rehabilitation. You will benefit from fast access and referral to other specialist consultants and physiotherapists to continue your treatment and care. Your pain management consultant is available for reassessment consultations and to provide advice and guidance.
Whether you are experiencing common headaches or more serious symptoms such as chronic back pain, our highly qualified multidisciplinary team will be by your side the whole way, from initial consultation to diagnosis, treatment and throughout your recovery.
