Sufferers of chronic pain need, and deserve, a specialized type of care, by a team experienced in addressing their unique needs.
All too often, chronic pain sufferers have to endure countless testing and consultations to determine the source of their discomfort. Sometimes, all that work delivers no true relief.
That's why chronic pain sufferers throughout New Orleans turn to the caring pain doctors of Southern Pain and Neurological.
Why visit Southern Pain and Neurological of Greater New Orleans?
At Southern Pain and Neurological, our team specializes in chronic pain care. Our team develops pain treatment plans that are individually designed for each of our patients. Our goal is to reduce the pain our patients feel by using state-of-the-art healthcare approaches that help you regain your quality of life.
While there are a number of ways to treat and address chronic pain, we always aim to use the least invasive methods that avoid or reduce a need for habit-forming opiates. That's why we take a team approach to working with each of our clients. As a team, our pain specialists analyze results, hold conversations with our patients, and review all possible options, so that we can come to a consensus on what treatment will be the most effective.
When should you visit our team for help with your chronic pain?
We believe that any time you have pain that's origin you can't explain, you should tell your doctor. When pain becomes chronic pain, and you struggle to find effective relief, other issues become a concern, such as depression or opiate dependency.
You may be unable to sleep. You might struggle to get through the day. You may not find joy in normal day-to-day activities. You owe it to yourself, and the people in your life, to determine what options are available to relieve you of this persistent discomfort.
