Here is a proven fact. All of healthcare in fact you could argue most of life our “decisions” are made pitting risks versus benefits. As adults we ask ourselves and teach our children, do our actions today set us up for a healthier and better future or not?
What if we take no action at all? Is that better than doing something?
All of these are decisions that you need to make along with your healthcare providers on a regular basis. You see everything we do is risks versus benefits. This is so important to understand. Make no mistake about modern science and medicine have developed amazing treatments.This also includes what we do here. We are continually working on treatments to help neuropathy and chronic pain patients.
Do YOU Always ASK your clinicians Is the cure is worse than the problem?
So, what if instead, we as both doctors and patients took a very strong look at the underlying causes of so much of illness and treated those first?
You know, all those things just get us into trouble. Poor dietary habits especially over the long haul, inactivity, cigarette smoking, not paying attention to stress and emotional health. I’m sure you get the picture.
What if we did all of those things before we prescribed for patients neuropathy and chronic pain treatment drugs, or surgical procedures that could cause significant harm.
For example, if doctors and patients paid more careful attention and worked together just like we do in NeuropathyDR Treatment Centers on weight loss and lifestyle, far less patients would be placed on statin medication.
Statin medications as you probably know are one major cause of neuropathy..
What if instead of injecting patients, and suggesting invasive procedures early on what if we both make sure as doctors and patients that all conservative treatment options were exhausted first?
You already know the answer…
You understand, as your NeuropathyDR clinician does, that’s all good neuropathy and chronic pain treatment is risks vs benefits!
So why not learn more today? Why not take actions that will help you live much more fully, without devastating side effects.
Make all your decisions about your neuropathy and chronic pain treatment very carefully!
