Hello,

Welcome to Just Answer and thanks for your question. What is your area? Are you near a University medical hospital?

I will try to find pain management in your area once I know it.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

Schuyler

Hi, Susan,

Those university hospitals are where you are going to find the most experienced pain management experts of all types. Pain specialists treat all kinds of pain. They don't "specialize" in only one thing like arachnoiditis.

Sadly, arachnoiditis is one of the most difficult problems to treat. What works for one patient often does not work for another. Generally treatment involves pain management as well as physical therapy and psychotherapy. No one publicizes how many people they help for any condition. Here are the links for all three:

Medical centers have the advantage of having both the latest technology as well as many different specialities practicing in a confined area so that coordination of treatment is more easily accomplished. All the pain centers are excellent. I would try the one most convenient to your home.

Kind regards,

Schuyler
