National Pain Awareness Month Continues!
This month has been focused on educating patients and opening the lines of communication regarding treatment options available for painful conditions.
- Did you know that Pain Awareness Month was first declared in 2001?
- 83 million Americans indicate that pain impacts their day to day activities.
Are you among the millions of Americans who suffer from pain? You’re not alone! At Spine & Joint Pain Specialists, our goal is to help our patients with a treatment plan to maximize their quality of life and activity level, while minimizing the negative impact of pain.
One treatment option that our providers specialize in is spinal cord stimulators. This is an implanted device that sends low levels of electricity directly into the spinal cord to relieve pain. Spinal cord stimulators are used most often after nonsurgical pain treatments have failed to provide sufficient relief. They can improve overall quality of life and sleep, and reduce the need for pain medicines.
Here’s a quote from one of our patients who has benefitted from a spinal cord stimulator…”It has made managing my pain so much better. I would highly recommend for your pain management needs.”
If you are struggling with pain and having difficulty finding relief, spinal cord stimulation may be an option for you. Call us to schedule an appointment- there are options & we can help!
