Pain is how your body lets you know that something is wrong, and you should never ignore it. In most cases, if you develop pain, you should take a few days to rest and use at-home therapies such as hot and cold treatments and elevation. However, if your pain doesn’t subside or if it gets worse, you should make an appointment with Dr. Fuller for diagnosis and treatment.
At Mountain Spine & Pain Physicians, Dr. Fuller begins with a comprehensive exam to locate your pain, identify its cause, and gauge its severity. He collects your personal and family medical history and asks questions about your symptoms, overall health, and lifestyle.
Dr. Fuller feels your body, including your spine and joints, for signs of swelling, deformity, and other abnormalities. He may also guide you through a series of gentle movements and stretches or ask you to walk around the office so he can see how your mobility is affected.
He may also order diagnostic imaging studies such as MRIs and X-rays as well as electrodiagnostic testing such as electromyography and nerve conduction studies.
When Dr. Fuller understands your pain and your needs, he creates and implements a customized treatment plan to reduce your pain.
