Changing the Pain Management Paradigm
“My personal journey into regenerative medicine started while practicing medicine in Boise, Idaho. Freshly out of pain management fellowship I had a vision of changing the landscape of how pain management would be practiced. I sought to carefully listen and understand the chronic pain experience of the patient presenting in front of me. Oftentimes the patients would tell me that they had been in chronic pain for many years without anyone knowing or being able to explain to them why their pain was daily and relentless. What I was finding consistent with many presentations was chronic inflammation from multiple sources. For instance, many patients with migraine headaches also had irritable bowel syndrome, widespread pain consistent with fibromyalgia, and poorly functioning immune systems. Patients with chronic spinal pain often had limited sun exposure as well as standard American diets high in grains and refined sugars. I was seeing patterns of patients presenting with polypharmacy merely masking the symptoms while frequently creating side effects and drug induced nutrient depletions. It became my life’s work to break these patterns and to develop a more integrative approach to the treatment of chronic pain.
As I started adding functional lab testing and theories to my management of our chronic pain, I was noting that the frequency of associated vitamin deficiencies, gastrointestinal inflammation, and biomarkers consistent with chronic inflammation were astounding. As this management was interwoven with precision fluoroscopic guided procedures chronic pain complaints which had been intractably present for decades were now suddenly responsive to this integrative pain management approach. Secondary to this, I knew very early on, that this integrative pain management approach would be the foundation from which I will continue to grow my medical skills during my lifetime to change the pain management paradigm.”
