The staff at Neurology And Pain Management leverage the most innovative technology to ensure that our patients are given the most comprehensive treatment for their chronic pain and neurological disorders. In an effort to meet the demands of patients all over North Eastern Indiana, we have three office locations in Merrillville, Lafayette, and Rensselaer. The questions listed below are the most common we come across during treatment.
What is a Neurologist?
A Neurologist is a physician who has been trained to treat disorders of the nervous system, which include diseases of the brain, spinal cord, nerves, and muscles.
What is “Intractable Pain”?
Intractable pain is a pain state in which the cause cannot be determined or eliminated. In the generally accepted course of medical practice, this is a variety of pain for which no relief or cure is currently available. If after following our rigorous evaluation and treatment regiment your pain still does not go away, you may be suffering from intractable pain. If this is the case, we will work with you to provide you with the most effective ways of managing your pain condition.

You should bring the following items to your appointment:
• Your insurance card
• Physician referral forms if required by insurance
• A list of current prescriptions and/or over the counter medication you are taking including dose and frequency
