Pain Management Q & A
What is pain management?
Pain management refers to the continuous or spontaneous treatment of any pain disorders, ranging from a small discomfort to debilitating symptomatic pain.
The team at Corvallis Pain Management works with you to develop a pain management regimen that is uniquely suited to your lifestyle and needs through rigorous diagnostics and medicine management.
Developing a cohesive and adequate management plan is integral to long-lasting health and to avoiding other pain-related issues later in life.
What conditions does pain management treat?
In most cases, you’ll feel pain without knowing exactly what is causing it. Diagnosing pain is part of the expertise offered by the team at Corvallis Pain Management.
Pain management can assist with conditions relating to:
- Back Pain
- Disc herniation

Using cutting-edge technologies and adhering to diagnostic best practices, the team can locate the exact source of your pain and customize a treatment plan to best fit your needs depending on if your pain is acute or chronic.
What is acute pain?
Acute pain occurs spontaneously and generally refers to the result of a trauma or injury. Examples of acute pain include:
- Broken bone
- Sprained muscle
This list is by no means inclusive. The team at Corvallis Pain Management qualifies acute pain as that which causes throbbing, stabbing, sharp, and aching sensations. In most cases, acute pain is temporary and can disappear in a few days with proper care.
What is chronic pain?
Chronic pain refers to pain that persists for more than three months. In most cases, chronic pain is a consequence of a more significant condition, such as neuropathy or fibromyalgia, though you might also experience chronic pain following an injury.
The following are examples of conditions that can cause chronic pain:
- Back pain
- Cancer pain
- Headaches or migraines
- Psychogenic pain
How are chronic and acute pain treated?
Treating both chronic and acute pain comes after the team at Corvallis Pain Management has had time to evaluate your overall health.
Your practitioner evaluates you during an initial consultation and asks you questions relating to any underlying conditions you may be suffering from, your family history, and any patterns in your health.
Generally, treatments for chronic and acute pain may include:
- Trigger point injections
- Pain relievers
- Anti-inflammatory medication
