04 Apr Why is There Just One Treatment for My Pain?
Whether you have back pain, joint pain, or any other type of pain, Dr. Nikesh Seth offers a wide variety of treatments including mainstream and alternative solutions. A lot of patients are frustrated when they see their GP or go to urgent care for pain. It seems like there’s a one-size-fits-all solution, no matter how severe or complicated their injury may be. That’s because a lot of mainstream clinics choose solutions that might be effective in managing pain for the majority of the population. These clinics don’t consider that some treatments might not be the best solution for all patients.
The opioid epidemic began in the 1990s when big pharmaceutical companies pushed opioids on clinics and doctors, claiming that they were safe and effective for pain management. That is certainly true in many cases, but in the beginning, nobody mentioned how dangerous and addictive these drugs were. Opioids might still be part of a pain management plan for very short-term pain, however, there are a lot of other treatment plans available that are safer and just as effective.
Every person, injury, and type of pain is unique. Shouldn’t your treatment plan be customized for you? At Integrated Pain Consultants, a wide range of treatments are available, from completely non-invasive solutions like ARP Wave Therapy to options that are much less invasive than traditional surgeries, such as spinal cord stimulation and epidural injections.
It’s critical to diagnose and address the source of the pain as well as giving patients the pain management solutions they need to go about daily tasks. A lot of alternative therapies can also be diagnostic tools. For instance, medial branch blocks can tell your doctor whether certain treatments will be effective or not. That saves the patient time, money, and the stress of gambling on certain solutions that might not work.
