Recognizing pain generators (causes for pain)

The single most important aspect for a musculoskeletal pain physician whether you have low back pain, neck pain, joint pain, nerve pain or muscle pain or a combination of problems is to properly identify the cause or causes of pain (pain generators), until that is achieved the Physician will be treating symptoms (pain) and not the underlying problem, the sooner it can be done, the sooner a specific treatment can be established for the patient.
