Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) October 04, 2011
A premier arizona pain clinic, Preferred Pain Center, implements treatment model recommended by the Institute of Medicine designed to obtain better pain management results.
According to the recent June 2011 report from the Institute of Medicine (IOM), chronic pain afflicts over 110 million Americans at a cost of over $600 billion annually. Along with presenting these unbelievable statistics, the IOM presented a blueprint action plan for improving the care of pain in America both directly (patient care) and indirectly (reimbursement, education, and research).
The premier Arizona pain center, Preferred Pain Center, instituted the IOM’s direct patient care model over 2 years ago, and has already obtained better pain management reduction than the norm.
“This was our idea from day one and it aligns completely with the report from the Institute. Integrating pain management specialists from both traditional and alternative realms works better at reducing pain. It really does,” says Center CEO David Greene, MD.
The report recommends customizing pain care to each pain patient’s individual needs along with promoting methods of patient self management. Many pain centers only focus on one treatment method, such as narcotics, for pain reduction. This is the issue with “pill mills” in the US, which unfortunately are rampant and do not align with the goals of the IOM report recommendations.
Added Dr. Greene, “Pushing pain patients through a factory type practice setting is a complete disservice to them and pain management as a specialty. Our providers take the time to listen to the specific experiences that landed the patient in pain, and then collaborate to customize individualized treatment. Each patient is different, and deserves their own plan.”
Preferred Pain Center utilizes both conventional pain management options along with complementary ones, which helps increase outcome success. These include interventional pain management with Arizona pain doctors, medication management and physical rehabilitation along with phoenix chiropractor treatment and spinal decompression treatment (a form of revolutionary spinal traction). Also, alternative treatments such as acupuncture, massage, and manipulation under anesthesia are offered.
With success rates over 90% for pain reduction, the integrated pain model at Preferred Pain Center in Phoenix represents the new paradigm in pain management’s future. The Center offers a 24 hour guarantee, getting patients’ treatment started quickly. Also, new pain management patients receive a free 30 minute massage.
New prospective patients can reach Preferred Pain Center at (602) 507-6550. The Center also maintains an extremely active website with narrated animations on the various treatments offered. The Center serves patients throughout the greater metropolitan Phoenix and Scottsdale AZ areas.
