Pain management services
The field of pain management treats all pain as a disease — regardless of its source. This includes both primary forms of pain such as headaches, as well as secondary pain, such as pain caused by a chronic disorder. Proper pain management is important for ongoing pain control, especially if patients suffer with long-term or chronic pain.
Depending on the severity of the pain you are experiencing, there may be several treatment approaches available for your specific management needs.
Options for treating pain may include:
- Nerve blocks
- Electrical stimulation
- Physical therapy
- Behavior modification

No referral necessary
Consultation with your primary care physician is recommended for any new or persistent pain-related concerns. However, if pain doesn’t resolve after several weeks, and if traditional treatments fail to provide relief, a visit to a pain specialist may help. Call Pain Associates of Wyoming at (307) 266-4000 to see if you may benefit from a consultation with a pain specialist.
Pain specialists should be considered as the step between a primary care provider and a surgeon to determine whether non-surgical interventions will work for you.
Referrals from physicians are also welcomed.
With our outreach clinics, it's now easier than ever to get care close to where you live and work. Call (307) 266-4000 to schedule an appointment or for more information.
