When someone is in chronic pain, medical history is essential. In fact, we’ve simply never seen someone and thought, “Hmmm, I really don’t need to know this much. I wish this form was shorter…”
However, our medical history form is often just a starting point. Typically, we’ll have other conversation based on some of the things that came up in your history.
If you are in chronic pain, fully sharing your medical history with your medical providers is a really important for a good outcome.
