CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Pain Management - Longview

Acute and chronic pain management

Our Approach

Pain management is the discipline concerned with treating acute and chronic pain. Acute pain often has a reversible cause and may require only temporary measures, whereas chronic pain often results from conditions that are difficult to diagnose and treat, and may take a long time to reverse. In some chronic pain situations, the pain itself is frequently managed separately from the underlying condition.

Our chronic pain management program is designed for the patient with long-standing pain issues. The goals of the program are to allow the patient to resume a normal lifestyle as soon as possible, minimize narcotic medication usage and coordinate care.

Treatment options include:

  • Medication management
  • Spinal injections
  • Physical therapy
  • Ongoing psychological counseling
  • Other modalities
CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic is an outpatient department of CHRISTUS Good Shepherd Medical Center.

Universal Masking

We at CHRISTUS Health value your health and safety. Consistent with recommendations from the CDC and the Texas Medical Board, we are requiring all patients, visitors and employees to wear a mask while within our facilities. Masks are not advised for children under age 2. Please bring your mask from home with you to your appointment. Any double layered cloth mask covering your nose and mouth is appropriate for visiting our clinics as long as it does not have an exhalation valve. If you cannot come alone to your appointment, please bring no more than 1 essential visitor with you.

If you are ill with fever and cough or shortness of breath, please contact your clinician's office for instructions before coming into the clinic. You can streamline your check-in process and help maintain social distancing by using the e-Check in feature in MyChart prior to your arrival. We appreciate the opportunity to serve you. These measures are just a few steps we are taking to ensure to provide you and all others a safe environment.
