Chronic Pain Management
 Q & A

What is chronic pain?

An estimated 100 million people in the United States are currently living with chronic pain, which is more than the combined number of Americans who are affected by diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, and cancer. Chronic pain, or any pain that lasts longer than three months, takes the form of persistent headaches, lower back pain, arthritis pain, or even nerve damage. Patients with chronic pain may experience:

  • Dull, aching pain
  • General soreness
  • Overall stiffness
  • Shooting or throbbing pain
  • Burning sensation  

What is multidisciplinary pain management?

A multidisciplinary pain management program operates from the philosophy that with the right skills, support, and direction, you can reduce your pain and enhance your quality of life. This holistic approach relies on the guidance and expertise of a team of health care professionals, including medical doctors, pain management specialists, chiropractors, physical therapists, and massage therapists.

Multidisciplinary pain management never focuses solely on your physical pain. Instead, it takes into account your behavioral, mental, and emotional health, and helps you play an active role in shaping your treatment and ongoing care.

What is CARF?

CARF stands for Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. Simply put, CARF is the “gold standard” in pain and injury rehabilitation. The Texas Division of Workers’ Comp and Texas Department of Insurance know the value of CARF. They require preauthorization for pain management for all medical clinics that are not CARF accredited. When you have CARF, it’s well understood that your physician is operating at a higher level than other doctors.

In order to achieve maximum CARF accreditation, physicians and office staff go through a rigorous inspection of their services, business operations, and patient outcomes. The team at WolMed literally passed hundreds of standards in order to achieve their last three maximum CARF accreditations.

What are CARF standards?

CARF organizations are required to meet specific standards to maintain a CARF-accredited pain management program. In addition to maintaining the highest standards for safety, policies and procedures, billing practices, patient confidentiality, and patient outcomes and satisfaction, WolMed must also maintain the following:
