Pain & Medication Management
Pain and Medication Management: Texas Work Comp Injury Clinics understands that pain is a factor in many of the cases that we treat and the management of your pain is crucial to helping you get back to doing what you love. We have a team of medical doctors who are available to prescribe medicine and help you with various treatment options to manage your pain.
In the interest of patient care excellence, we have trained our physicians and staff in the best practices relating to the prescription of pain medicines including narcotics. When pain management, through use of controlled substances, is clinically indicated, practitioners at Texas Work Comp Injury Clinics will seek to prescribe the lowest doses for the shortest duration possible. Texas Work Comp Injury Clinics takes great efforts to minimize the use of controlled substances and avert drug dependence, and we work with you to achieve this goal.
Medication management is a common method of pain treatment for workers’ compensation patients. Medications can help you live a more active life. At Texas Work Comp Injury Clinics, our medical doctors are responsible for prescribing medications and educating you on the right medications to take, at the right time, and in the right amount.
Medications work best when combined with other therapies including exercise, relaxation, medical massage, chiropractic adjustments and physical rehabilitation. Each patient may respond differently to medications. Medications are chosen based on their prospective benefit, cost, potential for side effects and the patient’s other medical conditions.
