Pain Management in Aventura, Hollywood, and Pembroke Pines: Why is it important to target the SOURCE and not just the Symptom?
When you’re in pain, your life turns upside down. Your normal everyday activities seem impossible to do and all you can think about is getting rid of this excruciating pain which is preventing you from returning to your normal lifestyle. So you try different strategies – you try to ignore it, live with it, warm it up, numb it with painkillers, but unfortunately, nothing seems to work in the long run and the pain just keeps coming back like a boomerang. We all have dealt with this condition at some point in our lives – a pain that no painkillers can deal with.
“The problem with numbing the pain - but without targeting the source - is that the pain may return. Therefore, for meaningful long term relief, you should see an Interventional Pain Management Doctor, who will target the source of the pain, and not just the symptom,” says Dr. Luis Escobar, a leading Interventional Pain Management Doctor in Aventura, Pembroke Pines, and Hollywood.
Dr. Escobar - who offers pain management in Aventura, Pembroke Pines, and Hollywood - sees patients with this exact condition every single day. Unlike many other pain management specialists, Dr. Escobar doesn’t just simply deaden the pain with narcotics because they know this is not a long term solution.
“We believe that pain is the body’s natural signal that there’s something wrong going on. If you keep targeting the symptom and neglect the source, this can eventually cause some serious damage to your health and will not cure the pain in the long term.”
Fortunately, nowadays there are many alternatively to painkillers, such as Spinal Endoscopy, Spinal Cord Stimulators, Discography, Facet Injections, and PRP. PRP (more commonly known as platelet rich plasma) and stem cell therapy aims to promote the body’s natural healing, which can lead to long term pain relief.
