Philosophy

Pain is an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience. Physical pain is often generated by tissue damage. As doctors, it is our duty to become more sensitive to a patient's pain and to dedicate ourselves to helping people live productive lives despite pain. My goal is to reduce a patient's pain and restore vitality to their life. I want you to feel happy and remain productive as you were before your chronic pain.

Pain is the most prominent member of a class of sensations known as bodily sensations. Bodily sensations such as pain can provide a powerful warning of soft tissue or bone damage. Pain management focuses on determining the cause of pain and then utilizing traditional and alternative approaches to decreasing and hopefully eliminating the pain. Hence, many individuals believe that pain is physical that is specific to body parts rather than our brains mechanism to prevent further damage to our body. This paradox is one of the main reasons why philosophers are especially interested in pain.

One increasingly popular but still controversial way to deal with this paradox is to state, pain is just a situation of mind over matter. If I say I don't have pain, it will go away. Certain individuals can reduce or even rid themselves of acute pain by simply using mind over matter; meditation can completely make fatigue and discomfort disappear. But for most of the population, pain is a very real sensation that makes life less enjoyable. As a doctor, I strive to diagnose and treat individuals who simply want relief from their pain.

In my many years of experience, I have seen pain take control and reduce the quality of many lives. I understand that pain is excruciatingly real and I have always strived to find the best and most personal solutions for the individuals who suffer from it. Together, we can create a diet and exercise plan that works for you. A great diet and the right exercises can reduce the pain that plagues most people.
