Frequently Asked Questions

What is your philosophy of care for pain management?

We develop patient-centered care plans that take your needs, goals, and lifestyle into account—treating you as a whole person, not just a condition.

To break the pain cycle, our program approaches the problem from multiple angles, and includes a wide variety of treatment options including injections, implants, and medication, but also lifestyle changes and physical therapy.

How can I get a personalized pain management plan?

To work with Forté Sports Medicine and Orthopedics’s pain management program, you’ll need a referral from your primary care doctor or other physician. Once you’re referred to the practice, we’ll meet with you one-on-one to build understanding about your situation, and then we’ll develop your pain management plan.

Because of the complicated nature of pain, it can take time to identify the cause and find the right solution for your discomfort. Working directly with a pain management specialist is the best and fastest way to get to the root of your pain and start alleviating it.

Can I continue the back pain or neck pain treatments I’ve done before?

It depends. We do not generally do same-day injections before consultation, and we very rarely prescribe opioids, even if a previous physician prescribed them. Be sure to bring your records or other information about your previous treatments to your appointments, and we’ll consider them as we get to know your case.

Do you prescribe opioids?

Except in extremely rare situations, our practice does not prescribe opioids for chronic pain. We believe in a more comprehensive approach to pain—working to understand the root causes and then developing a targeted strategy for pain management that is more effective and safer than opioid prescriptions.

What type of diagnostic testing do you have?

We offer a wide variety of diagnostics including x-rays, ultrasound, EMG and more.

Does Forté offer image-guided procedures?

Yes, our pain management specialists utilize ultrasound guidance for different treatments and procedures.

Will other orthopedic specialists be consulted in my care?

If needed, our pain medicine specialist collaborates with subspecialty orthopedic physicians within the practice.
