When to See a Pain Management Physician

Has your pain lasted far too long? Our team can help.

Pain seems to hit you at the worst of times: when you are running errands or playing with your children in the backyard. If aches and pains are getting to you, you might want to turn to our Reno, NV, pain management physician Dr. Ali Nairizi for care. Here at Reno Tahoe Pain Associates, we believe in managing your pain as quickly and effectively as possible. Here’s when you might want to consider a pain management physician,

Your Pain is Chronic

While minor injuries such as strains and sprains may bench you for a few days or even a couple of weeks, with rest these issues should go away on their own; however, certain types of pain can last for months or even years. If pain has become a constant, it’s time to seek professional medical attention to find out how to better treat the issue.

You Don’t Know What’s Causing Your Pain

If you find that pain relievers and home care just aren’t alleviating your pain this could be a sign of an underlying health problem. There are many conditions, injuries, and diseases that can lead to pain, and it’s our job as your Reno, NV, pain management physician to determine the root cause.

After all, simply taking pain relievers doesn’t treat the underlying cause, it just temporarily alleviates your pain. Painkillers aren’t an effective treatment, they just simply mask your pain. Instead, Dr. Nairizi and his team will perform the proper diagnostic tests to determine the cause of your pain so they can craft a treatment plan that will help treat the underlying problem.

Your Pain Impacts Your Daily Routine

If you find that your pain is making it challenging to do the things you once loved to do or is impacting simple everyday tasks such as grooming or cleaning the house, this is another sign that you could benefit from seeing a pain management physician. Pain shouldn’t limit what you can and can’t do. If it’s impacting your quality of life, it’s time you turned to us for answers and care.

Pain doesn’t quit, and neither do we. This is why we are open 7 days a week from 8 am-7 pm, and walk-ins are always welcome. If you would like to schedule an appointment with our Reno, NV, pain management physician Dr. Nairizi, then call Reno Tahoe Pain Associates at (775) 384-1127.
