The pain specialists at DFW Spine Institute are dedicated to diagnosing the root cause of pain in order to most effectively treat patients in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Pain Mapping is a diagnostic approach to pain management that utilizes different tests to identify the source of pain.

How Does Pain Mapping Work?


Pain mapping utilizes a variety of diagnostic tools in order to gain a comprehensive picture of where a patient’s pain originates in the body. Your doctor may start with standard techniques, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or CT, but these scans cannot always reveal the underlying cause of pain. At DFW Spine Institute, pain mapping is highly personalized to best serve each patient. Your pain mapping plan may involve a series of advanced diagnostic tools, such as discography or nerve blocks. Once your pain management team has a better understanding of the root cause of your pain, they can create a treatment plan to alleviate your symptoms.

Am I A Candidate For Pain Mapping?

If you suffer from pain with an undetermined cause, or if other tests have been inconclusive, then pain mapping may give a better understanding of the cause of your pain. At DFW Spine Institute we offer pain mapping for patients whose quality of life is diminished by back pain, neck pain, or pain in the extremities. Once your doctor is aware of the source of your pain, they will be able to recommend an effective course of treatment.
