Pain Treatment in NYC That Safely Ends Chronic Pain

Why Some Chronic Pain Treatments Don’t Work
Have you given up on finding relief from your chronic pain? Maybe you feel like you’ve tried everything. Or maybe the things you haven’t tried yet are unappealing. If a lifelong narcotics prescription or invasive surgery doesn’t appeal to you, you aren’t alone. Yet, many doctors only know to prescribe such solutions when pain won’t relent.
The trouble is, solutions like surgery and opioids are not only unappealing, they’re often ineffective and even pose serious risks. The reason chronic pain goes unresolved is twofold. First, the pain may not be properly diagnosed. And second, the treatment options some doctors provide may be generalized and inadequate. The result is, you’re stuck with chronic pain, and possibly, additional negative side effects.
At Pain Treatment Specialists in NYC, we conquer the hurdles that stand in the way of chronic pain relief. We start by identifying the true source, which is often misdiagnosed. Next, we take a customized approach to treating pain that incorporates your total health. We then utilize minimally invasive, innovative solutions for nationally-recognized, award-winning results.
Our board certified, Harvard-trained pain management doctors offer solutions you won’t find at a primary care physician or chiropractor. They hold multiple certifications that stem beyond pain medicine for the most comprehensive approach to treatment. Our pain physicians are world-renowned for safe, effective, and groundbreaking chronic pain relief. It all starts with identifying the distinct source of your pain, which is something many other doctors can’t take time to do.
How to Find the Source of Your Chronic Pain
1) Choose a Chronic Pain Doctor Who Hears You
Have you waited months for a doctor’s appointment, then been rushed through your visit in 15 minutes? Did you feel like your questions were answered? Do you even remember what you discussed? Did you feel like your doctor really heard you or understood your symptoms? Did they prescribe a treatment you don’t understand or don’t feel comfortable doing? Did they prescribe something you’ve already tried, or tell you there’s nothing else they can do?
2) Choose a Pain Management Doctor Who Has Time for You
The sad fact about chronic pain sufferers is that they need a companion in their pain management journey, and many doctors don’t have time to do that. With busy practices and insurance guidelines, most appointments don’t allow sufficient time for the doctor to get to know you. As a result, your pain doesn’t improve, or it improves with treatment that causes serious side effects. But at Pain Treatment Specialists, our doctors are passionate about forming a relationship with each patient and getting to know you.
3) Choose a Board Certified Doctor Who Sees You as an Individual
Our doctors know that each person experiences pain differently and has different contributing factors. We’re also experts in identifying pain that masquerades as something else. Back pain may be related to your spine, but it may also refer from your neck, leg, or even internal organs. We don’t prescribe pain treatment without understanding the root of the pain, which makes treatment not only safer, but also more effective.
4) Choose a Nationally Recognized Pain Expert
Back pain caused by degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis may feel similar. But they should be treated differently. Without accurate identification, both will cause chronic pain. And with the wrong advice, you can worsen either condition. For example, degenerative disc disease is often improved by exercise and therapeutic movement, whereas exercise with untreated spinal stenosis can sometimes do more damage. That’s why it’s so important to choose a doctor who thoroughly investigates your pain before suggesting treatment.
5) Choose Pain Treatment Specialists for Superior Care
Our doctors start by taking a comprehensive medical history that looks at all competing evidence and dives into your family medical records. We also take a global approach to your health, factoring in things like lifestyle, stressors, and mental health. We thoroughly examine all lab tests, imaging, and diagnostics you’ve had done, and order more as needed. Unlike many medical practices, we invest the time in sourcing the pain, which leads to superior relief.
