Chronic pain is a common medical problem but is often misdiagnosed or not properly managed. Individuals suffering from chronic pain are often given the wrong advice and the wrong medication and treatment, prolonging their suffering. In the Albany Med Health System, our providers work one-on-one with patients to find the source of their pain and design treatment options to help improve their quality of life.

A Team to Help You Find Relief
Albany Medical Center's pain management program uses a team approach to the diagnosis and treatment of chronic pain. This means neurologists, neurosurgeons, anesthesiologists, physiatrists, and others work together to identify the underlying cause and best treatment options for patients. Patients are encouraged to actively participate in treatment.
Our pain specialists diagnose and treat pain syndromes of all types, including muscular, skeletal (bone) and neuropathic (produced by injured nerves).
This can include:
- Neuropathic pain
- Spine pain
A full spectrum of therapies, ranging from simple relaxation techniques to the most advanced implantable devices, is available. As an academic medical center we have access to clinical trials and biomedical research that may not be available elsewhere in the region.
A comprehensive treatment plan for treating pain may include:
- Chiropractic treatment
- Exercise programs
- Intrathecal medication management
- Physical therapy
- Psychological counseling
