A New Era of Chronic Pain Management

- Friday, June 13, 2014

Chronic pain has been a problem for millions of Americans for decades.  For the most part, patients would complain of chronic pain to their primary care physicians (PCP), the PCPs would refer the patient to a methadone clinic and the patient’s pain would be managed by highly addictive narcotics.  

Unfortunately this significantly limited the patient’s quality of life, not to mention give them a whole new problem to deal with in addition to the chronic pain: drug addiction.  This is still an issue today, but there is also a shift happening in the chronic pain space.

Seeing the dire need for more permanent solutions that increase mobility and improve quality of life, companies are putting effort into creating high tech solutions to chronic pain.  Pain specialists like Drs. Do Chan and Boris Shwartzman, who are at the forefront of the pain industry, are taking advantage of these solutions and helping hundreds of patients.

Minimally invasive procedures which can be performed in a few hours with very little downtime like Disc FX, are becoming the go-to solution for chronic pain management instead of medications.  Disc FX treats herniated disc conditions by using a patented device which is inserted into the center of the disc where damaged tissue is precisely treated and/or removed. As a result, disc pressure is reduced, which eases symptoms.

Disc FX and various other minimally invasive procedures for the treatment of Chronic pain are available by the experts at The Franklin Pain and Wellness Center.  Contact staff@franklinpaincenter.com for more information.
