I see a pain intervention group, they do nerve blocks and similar procedures rather than prescribing narcotic pain meds. It has made a world of difference for me- I have 2 damaged nerves in the hip/groin area that made walking so difficult and painful I ended up using a forarm crutch/cane to help as my leg became weaker and weaker.
I would see a pain management doctor if I could find a decent one who takes my insurance and is close enough to where I live because I still have other pain issues.
