Because people with chronic pain generally have extensive medical histories, a referral from a medical health care professional is requested. Medical health care professionals may include a primary doctor, a doctor trained in mental health conditions (psychiatrist or psychologist) or a nurse practitioner.

The referral provides the Pain Rehabilitation Center staff with the necessary background to determine if the rehabilitation approach may be beneficial for the individual.

A medical health care professional can arrange a referral by calling 507-266-5100, or see resources for physicians for more information.
