What Does a Pain Management Doctor Do?
A pain management doctor has three main goals when helping a patient. One, provide immediate relief in order to restore their quality of life, two, discover the root cause of the pain, and three, implement a long-term strategy to prevent the pain from developing in the future.
At our practice, our doctors combine their years of experience in this field to provide personalized treatment plans to help patients with a wide variety of pain problems, including those in the back, neck, shoulders, joints, and beyond.
How Pain Management Works
Although you may be hoping and dreaming about one magical treatment that removes your chronic pain, it usually doesn’t work that way. Lasting relief from pain often includes several semi-consistent treatments and lifestyle adjustments. As pain management specialists, we not only treat pain directly but also work with you to identify the underlying reason for your pain. Then, we formulate a personalized, long-term plan for reducing and avoiding pain in the future. We take a look at your overall health as a whole, consider your goals, and create a pain management plan. It may take some experimentation to find the right combination that works best for you, but you can rely on us at Richardson Pain & Wellness to put your comfort above everything else.
How We Can Help Manage Your Pain
The big mistake that most “pain experts” make is that they assume every problem has a singular solution. This treatment helps with back pain, that treatment helps with the joints, and so on. In our experience, this is far from the truth. Everyone is different, and that includes how their body works, which also includes what leads to their chronic pain.
Our approach involves providing a variety of strategies to help eliminate acute and severe pain that’s specifically tailored to your needs and lifestyle. We aren’t promising a cure-all, but rather a systemic approach that’s custom-made to get you, and only you, feeling better as quickly as possible.

Tramadol, Muscle Relaxer - No Opioids
Tramadol is an oral analgesic that works by changing how the brain responds to pain throughout the body. It is NOT and opioid, so there is no threat of addiction, though it works using the same basic principle. We can also have a patient take a well-known muscle relaxer, which helps ease excess tension in the body that is the root cause of many types of chronic pain.
When one muscle is too stiff or weak to function properly, this causes other surrounding muscles to compensate, often leading them to become overloaded and strained, which is a very common cause of pain. rehabilitation as prescribed by our doctors can help strengthen muscles either after an injury or surgical procedure so that the body is able to work as intended, leaving a patient free of pain symptoms.Learn More About rehabilitation

That way, we can figure out the most conservative solution so you can get the best results without having to drastically alter your day-to-day life or undergo an invasive treatment.
Perspective of Pain Management
In order to properly address a very generic symptom such as “pain,” a doctor must have both experience and an expertise in the field of chronic pain management. This field was first formulated in the 1980’s, and it involves the combination of several different specialties, all of which are capable of diagnosing and treating a specific kind of pain.
At Richardson Pain & Wellness, both our doctors are certified chiropractors with years of experience in the field of pain management. This is why, unlike many other pain clinics, they base our practice on offering a number of proven solutions so they can be combined together to address each patient’s unique needs.
