Ligament damage in elbow. Back surgery, knee constructions done. Will pain management clinic benefit me?

I am a 36 year old male. I have had back surgery, two knee reconstructions. a previous severe spinal injury. I think I may currently have ligament damage in my elbow but am dealing with it for now. I am in constant pain all throughout my body. It is starting to overtake my daily life. Is a pain management clinic something that could benefit me? and how would I go about finding one?

hi,welcome to HCM
i understand your situation...
but let me tell you that previous surgeries are past and hope they are fine now
now, the problem is pain in the elbow.which can be a bony,ligament,muscle pain
depending on the cause of pain and damage there are specific scientific treatments available;;
i suggest you to consult an orthopaedician get examined ,x ray if needed because treating the cause or problem itself will releive you of the pain ..
better to treat the cause of pain than pain alone
bye take care
