How Can UPMC Pain Management Help Me?

Pain differs for each person. It can be sudden and intense after an illness, injury, or health treatment.

Pain can also be long-lasting and occur along with things like stress, depression, and fatigue.

UPMC pain clinics treat many types of pain — both acute and chronic.

Our pain medicine experts use a range of treatments to help you feel better, such as:

  • Medicines. Your doctor may prescribe drugs that block or lessen pain to give you comfort. You may also take over-the-counter pain relievers.
  • Interventional pain management treatments. Your pain specialist may do techniques such as pain-relieving shots or surgery. These treatments can help reduce your pain level.
  • Specialized therapies. Your provider may have you see a specialist to help you manage and cope with your pain. These may include occupational and physical therapists and behavioral health experts.

UPMC's pain team works closely with experts in a wide range of health disciplines. We create complete, custom treatment plans that address how pain affects you.
