Treatment 

Our highly experienced clinical team will develop an individualized treatment plan designed to:

  • Decrease the disability caused by pain
  • Decrease emergency room visits
  • Help you resume a more productive role at home and work

Outpatient Consultation

You will meet with a pain management physician who will perform a complete history and physical examination. He will be responsible for the focus and direction of your treatment and care. Your physician will also review treatment options with you. This may include other members of our health care team with the goal of designing an individualized treatment plan. Our professional health care team includes:

  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation physicians
  • Biofeedback therapists
  • Physical therapists
  • Occupational therapists
  • Registered nurses
  • Neuropsychologists
  • Case managers
  • Licensed professional counselors

Consulting staff includes recreational therapists, representatives of Texas Department of Assistive and Rehabilitative Services and nutritional services.

Interdisciplinary Rehabilitation Programs

We provide a range of services to help meet your needs and goals in life. They include individual treatments, our Focused Interdisciplinary Program and our Comprehensive Outpatient Program.

Program components include proven strategies such as conditioning, stretching and aquatic exercise; behavioral techniques to manage pain such as visualization and biofeedback; and cognitive or behavioral therapy to improve coping skills and reduce emotional distress. The program also includes training in body mechanics, ergonomics, adaptive daily living skills, and vocational counseling if appropriate.

Positive Outcomes

Baylor Centers for Pain Management combine medical education and scientific research to promote successful outcomes for patients. A review of more than 600 patients who completed our programs shows significant improvement on a variety of standard measures, including activity levels, ability to do important life activities, coping, physical strength and endurance, and decreased use of medication.

Communication with Your Physicians

While a referral from your primary care physician is not necessary, communication with your doctor or other health care provider may be useful in understanding your medical history.
