Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability. It lasts longer than "normal healing" (several months), and can cause severe problems.
Pain Management Services
Pain management is a specialized type of medical care designed to minimize the impact of surgical pain or chronic pain. Some causes of pain can be difficult to control and may not be possible to cure; however, there are techniques used in pain management that can help reduce pain and enable patients to enjoy a better quality of life.
Diagnosis of Pain
Getting to the root of pain is the key to tailoring a treatment plan. Dr. David Webb will work with you to try to identify the source of your pain in order to determine proper treatment.
Causes of pain include injury, damaged nerves, bone conditions, stroke, and diseases and conditions such as arthritis, diabetes, cancer, shingles, ulcers, skin disease, and vascular disease. Georgia Pain and Spine Institute treats a variety of pain-related conditions.
Treatments & Procedures
Medication-Assisted Treatment (MAT)
MAT is primarily used for the treatment of addiction to opioids such as heroin and prescription pain relievers that contain opiates. The prescribed medication operates to normalize brain chemistry, block the euphoric effects of alcohol and opioids, relieve physiological cravings, and normalize body functions without the negative and euphoric effects of the substance used.
Dr. David Webb is double board certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine and is one of a limited number of physicians in the country who is dual fellowship trained in both acute and chronic pain medicine. Dr. Webb specializes in many interventional and non-interventional techniques.
