What do my Pain Symptoms Indicate? | Carson Tahoe Health

Chronic pain affects over 34 million Americans, which takes its toll on the quality of life, productivity, and even personal income of those living in our country.

Unfortunately, pain is subjective so there is no clear way to measure it. This creates another perplexing issue for doctors. The Carson Tahoe Pain Institute, pain specialists, or pain medicine doctors are better equipped to diagnose the cause of pain and treat it through an arsenal of different procedures and methods.
