(I’m honored to have this article featured on SpineUniverse.com):
An experienced chiropractor has tips to help you get the care you need at your next appointment
From our patient’s first consultation to the last treatment office visit, the success of any pain treatment we prescribe is contingent upon us (the health care provider) accurately treating the root cause of your pain.
As the patient, precisely describing your acute pain or neuropathic pain is a “high stakes” conversation.
I can read your medical history, referring doctor reports and lab results, but this is all secondary to understanding each patient’s pain mechanics.
It is absolutely essential that this is communicated to your pain management provider as accurately as possible.
