Approximately one third of Americans suffer from chronic pain. It is one of the most common reasons people visit the doctor. September is Chronic Pain Awareness Month. Now is the time to act on your chronic pain.
Pain can be the side effect of serious medical problems like cancer and rheumatoid arthritis, but it also exists independently of any other medical condition. Decades of research and millions of dollars have been devoted to studying the problem of chronic pain. But most current therapies provide only marginal relief for many sufferers.
Prescription drugs, while effective weapons against chronic pain, are under increasing scrutiny because they can be addictive for patients.
The pain specialists at Franklin Pain and Wellness Center will check and discuss your medical history and may request the necessary x-rays to start the diagnostic process. You will then be asked to provide the pain specialist with detailed information about your pain to determine the possible source of it.
We will establish the most thorough and accurate diagnosis so that a customized program, using minimal or no narcotics, can be created that will target your specific pain. Start living free of pain during Chronic Pain Awareness Month, contact us.
