What to Look For in a Pain Doctor

How to Select a Doctor to treat your painMy wife and I are having our basement painted. With five kids, the basement is an important place in our home.

Without a second thought, we called the painter who we’ve used for years. He told my wife that he would send an estimate.

She said, “Why? It doesn’t matter. We’re hiring you.”

Isn’t it great when you get to a place where you unconditionally trust someone? We don’t have to worry about our painter taking advantage of us. We have no doubt that he’ll give us a fair price, show up on time and do a wonderful job.

Why We’re Committed to Staying on Top of Advances in Pain Management

I recently announced that I’ve become certified in the Cox Technic System of Spinal Pain Management. Without getting too deep into medical mumbo-jumbo, Cox Technic is an innovative, non-surgical approach for relieving spinal pain caused by disc degeneration, disc herniation and stenosis. It’s also used to treat other conditions that cause pain in the neck, upper and lower back, shoulders, arms and legs.

The great thing about Cox Technic is that it has been scrutinized in federally funded research projects. Published evidence shows Cox Technic flexion-distraction protocols have effectively relieved disc pressure and back pain caused by a number of conditions.

In other words, it’s not a theory. Cox Technic is the real deal – a well-respected, well-researched, gentle, safe and successful approach to pain relief.

I’ve also announced that my colleague, Dr. Kurt Hostnik, recently became a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (ACNB), distinguishing himself as a board-certified, chiropractic neurologist experienced in the successful treatment of a number of conditions, such as tinnitus, vertigo, inner ear imbalances and dizziness.

So what does this mean for you?

Well, we don’t share this news to brag about career achievements or direct your attention to fancy new certificates hanging on our office walls. We want you to know that we never rest on our laurels. We believe it’s our duty as healthcare professionals to constantly explore new and innovative ways to improve the quality of life for our patients.

No two human bodies are exactly the same. No two people have exactly the same lifestyle. As a result, no two approaches to pain relief should be exactly the same. That’s why we’re so committed to staying on top of the latest advances, news, research and trends in pain management – and sharing this knowledge with you.

There may be a certain kind of treatment that will work well for you, and that’s great. But if there’s a breakthrough treatment that we feel will work even better, we’re committed to finding it, learning it and offering it.

For us, “good enough” is never good enough. Exploring new ways to help you enjoy a better life isn’t just our job. It’s our obligation and our passion.
