At American Spine, we believe in creating strong patient-physician relationships comprised of 100 percent involvement from the patient. In an effort to make this possible, our practice follows a multidisciplinary pain program to ensure there is a team taking an active role in the patient regaining complete control of his or her life.
What makes American Spine unique is our patient specific and condition specific approach to treatment. Our practice hosts a range of condition specific physical therapies as well as highly specialized and cutting edge minimally invasive procedures.
A multidisciplinary pain management program is a team of healthcare providers who work together to design individualized treatment plans. These specialists come together to offer interventions, strategies for self-management, complete assessments, treatments, communication, and education. Instead of solely focusing on patients’ pain, our physicians take a holistic approach and shape treatment around continual pain management.
Usually a multidisciplinary pain management team is made up of:
- Physical therapists
- Recreational therapists
- Physician Assistants
- Family, friend
- The patient
The team will vary depending on what kind of treatment is necessary for the patient and what the end goal is. This approach to care is successful because no information is lost in translation. The advice you get from your physician will be communicated to your physical therapist so that you are not getting mixed information or recommendations.
Every decision that is made at American Spine is based on the goals and needs of the patient. We work with other healthcare providers based on similar beliefs and missions in order to successfully design and implement a treatment plan.
