Board certified interventional pain specialist Dr. Ira Fox, MD, DABPM, FIPP, ABIPP of Anesthesia Pain Care Consultants was a guest on WLRN’s Topical Currents radio show. He and author Judy Foreman, author of “A Nation in Pain,” discussed the latest methods for managing chronic pain conditions, as well as any secondary pain that can come along with it. At least 100 million Americans suffer with ongoing pain – it’s the leading cause in work absence and contributes to depression and substance abuse.
It’s important for patients to know that chronic pain should not go untreated. Through interventional techniques such as localized nerve blocks and fluoroscopy video images, the physicians at Anesthesia Pain Care Consultants strive to alleviate the chronic pain of their patients.
