Comprehensive Pain Management at PASS

Chronic pain effects millions of Americans daily. Chronic pain sufferers feel limited in their daily activities and are prevented from experiencing a fully lived life. Almost everyone experiences physical pain in their lives. Whether minuscule or huge, the brain releases pain signals when the body is injured. It is part of your body’s protective systems.

Typically, injury or pain conditions will heal on their own. When pain does not go away then it can then be classified as chronic pain. At this point It is important to seek a specialist who provides chronic pain management services that can effectively diagnose and treat your pain.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this office. I was helping my mom find a place for her arthritis pain, and I explained to them how bad it was. They were able to schedule me the same week! That's almost impossible at any doctor's office...and then add COVID..... I was thrilled. I took my mom, and everyone was absolutely so sweet and kind

- Donyasha B.

Dr. Rao. I can't find the words to tell you how much he has meant to me. I followed him from an old practice to his very new high tech office. They offer so many different areas of assistance to those with issues from nutrition to spinal surgery...and much more. His office is professional.

Dr. Roa is such an amazing doctor! During my first visit he never tried to rush through my appt., he genuinely listened to all my concerns and then took his time to explain to me in detail all his recommendations and how they would help me.

- Nikki Walker

In the 3 years as a patient of Dr. Rao, it is my opinion that he is a phenomenal and extraordinary doctor. He keeps up to date with the latest treatment options, will sacrifice time no matter how many are in the waiting room to listen and explain. Dr. Rao has treated multiple patients with rare illnesses, and shows more empathy than any Dr. I’ve met.

They scheduled my appointment very quickly so that I can get to help that I needed immediately instead of like most places having to wait two to three weeks to get in I called and was able to be seen the next day

- John H.

Signs of Chronic Pain

Chronic pain does not just “go away” after a few days of rest. Your body experiences the pain for weeks, months, and years on end. Doctors usually determine if a patient is experiencing chronic pain if it lasts longer than 3 months.

Many people find the quality of their lives impacted. It is vital for anyone experiencing prolonged pain to reach out to a medical professional.

Finding a comprehensive pain program can establish the patient on the path to pain relief. Chronic pain can be a complex and multifaceted problem for a patient and may require a pain specialist to manage.

It is important for individuals suffering from this condition to find skilled providers who can effectively provide comprehensive pain management. There can be several factors contributing to someone’s chronic pain. No two patients are alike in their chronic pain experiences.

Some patients may have experienced a sports injury or were involved in some type of accident. Other patients may have developed conditions like arthritis or fibromyalgia which include pain as part of their diagnosis.

However, not all chronic pain sufferers can trace their pain experiences to one source. It may be a combination of health conditions that coexist or may be a result of previous injuries or infections. It is important for the patient to discuss their medical history in detail with their provider. This discussion will help providers to best determine the cause(s) of their chronic pain.
