I'm simply amazed and grateful to have been a part of something that has the potential to be so life changing for an individual," says Dr. Bowers.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) May 12, 2020
Seattle and Bellevue have recently seen the opening of a new boutique style interventional pain clinic. The vision of board certified interventional pain doctor, Dr. Robert Bowers strives to be one of the Seattle area's best pain doctors and to offer effective and long lasting pain relief to patients, whether they are experiencing acute pain or chronic pain, using the most up to date approaches to pain management.
Bellevue Pain and Wellness PLLC offers top pain clinic services and therapies for acute and chronic pain relief including evaluation and treatment of neck pain, lower back pain, joint pain, including hip pain, knee pain, ankle pain, shoulder pain, elbow pain, wrist pain, headache, migraine, chronic pain, abdominal pain, pelvic pain, facial pain, and provides services including joint injections, back injections, neck injections, epidural injections, sacroiliac joint injections, trigger point injections, radiofrequency ablation, genicular nerve block for arthritis of the knees, facet blocks for low back pain, evaluation for non-opioid pain medications, spinal cord stimulation and neuromodulation, and treatment of acute pain after surgery.
In addition to offering high quality pain management services such as new patient consultations and injection therapy, Dr. Robert Bowers is pleased to offer the cutting edge therapy of neuromodulation, also known as spinal cord stimulation, where small electrodes can be inserted through the skin during a short outpatient procedure. Spinal cord stimulation is an FDA approved technique with a long standing history, however the technology has been evolving rapidly over the past five years, with an improvement in pain relief to patients.
"As a field, interventional pain management specialists are always on the lookout for something that can do better for pain relief. I've seen spinal cord stimulation work so well for some patients time and time again, however every time it works, I'm simply amazed and grateful to have been a part of something that has the potential to be so life changing for an individual," says Dr. Bowers.
There are a variety of painful conditions that may benefit from neuromodulation, including certain types of low back pain, neck pain, sciatica, and arm or leg pain. Specific conditions that might benefit include failed back surgery pain, epidural fibrosis and shooting or burning leg pain, spinal stenosis, CRPS/RSD and phantom limb pain, as well as neuropathic pain/neuropathy, possibly from diabetes or idiopathic neuropathy. One of the advantages of this approach is that a patient is typically given a trial period to see if the therapy benefits his or her pain. If the patient is pleased with the pain relief or functional improvement that he or she received, the patient can elect to have a long term option, which can last for years and years. Bellevue Pain and Wellness PLLC and Dr. Bowers have expertise in the approach, and Dr. Bowers has seen many patients show marked improvement.
Also on the cutting-edge, Spravato is an exciting new therapy, which is FDA approved for hard-to-treat depression. Spravato is related to ketamine, which has been used by doctors to treat depression, anxiety, PTSD, PMDD, chronic pain, and other mental health disorders. Nasal spray Spravato offers, however, an approach that does not require a needle and, because it carries FDA-approval, it may be covered by patient’s health insurance companies for treatment-resistant depression. Anesthesiology-pain management physicians, such as Dr. Bowers, are in a unique position to administer this treatment in a pain clinic setting, based on years of training and experience in operating rooms administering anesthetic medications, as monitoring after administration of the treatment is required.
