Your Healthcare Team

Several medical professionals often work together to design your care plan and deliver your pain treatments. Your healthcare team may include:

  • Pain specialists
  • Clinical psychologists
  • Physiotherapists
  • Spine surgeons
  • Neurosurgeons
  • Rehabilitation specialists
  • Clinical nurse specialists

You Are on the Team

Because no one knows your chronic pain like you do, you play an important role in the pain management process. Understanding your pain, communicating your needs, stating your expectations for treatment, and knowing your options will empower you to take action with the help of your doctors, nurses, and other caregivers.

Information on this site should not be used as a substitute for talking with your doctor. Always talk with your doctor about diagnosis and treatment information.
