Personal physicians can typically recommend pain management specialists to their patients. Local hospitals may have or be able to recommend pain treatment centers, and the head of the hospital's anesthesiology department or the American Society of Anesthesiologists may also have recommendations, notes WebMD. Local medical schools are also likely to have pain management recommendations. Pain management doctors treat patients who experience chronic or disabling pain by prescribing medication, behavioral therapy, exercise and neuromodulation.
