Medication Management Q & A

What does medication management involve?

Medication management is a comprehensive approach to pain relief that ensures patients receive the most effective and safe medications for their health condition. Creating your personalized medication management plan involves several steps, including reviewing your medical history and performing a head-to-toe physical exam.

Medication management may be a key component of your treatment plan if you sustain an injury or experience a chronic pain condition that affects your daily life. Your pain management specialist at Integrated Pain Consultants works with you to develop a plan that helps you find lasting relief from pain while minimizing uncomfortable medication side effects.

I have multiple prescriptions. Do I need medication management?

If you have multiple medications, particularly if you take prescription pain relievers like opioids or narcotics, proper management is essential. Pain relievers are a common and often necessary treatment for acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) pain, but they carry several risks — increasing tolerance, addiction, and liver problems, to name a few.

Medication management can reduce your risk of these side effects and consequences while minimizing interactions between different medications. Integrated Pain Consultants has extensive experience in pain management. The providers understand the proper guidelines for medication management and always prescribe the lowest dose possible for effective pain relief.

  • Facet arthritis
  • Cervical degenerative disc disease
  • Cervical spinal stenosis
  • Ankle pain
  • Bulging disc
