Medication Management

Integrated Pain Consultants | Scottsdale, Mesa, Phoenix, Arizona

Those who suffer from pain often require necessary medication management and is at the forefront of Integrated Pain Consultants pain treatment plans. Patients with chronic pain that is not well-controlled often experience reduced quality of life, lost work time and opportunities, stigma, and inability to live a full and productive life. In fact, the most common cause of long-term disability is chronic pain and it affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined.

When I was let's just say: a bit more than apprehensive about having a Huge Needle put into My Thoracic Spine (for good reason), Emily assured me that Dr. Seth is The Best. After giving it much careful thought, I agreed to go along with The Epidural. Emily was right: `` Dr. Seth is The Best``.

Why Medication Management Is Critical For Long Term Health

Medication management for chronic and acute pain has become challenging in recent years for many care providers who aren’t specialized in pain management. While opioids and pain killers are a common and often necessary treatment plan for patients experiencing pain, these medications come with their own risks and concerns. One such risk is the development of tolerance which results when a patient requires a higher dosage to get relief. Other medication risks include addiction, liver issues, brain damage, and other side effects. Ironically, some of these risks actually occur when a patient is instructed to wait to see a qualified pain specialist and instead receives medications from a primary care provider or urgent care facility.
