An article published by the Crain’s Chicago Business discusses the opioid crisis happening nationwide. It cites the need for alternative forms of pain management, specifically the spinal cord stimulator. Stimulators have become invaluable when treating patients experiencing chronic pain. Patients at APAC, a pain management service, have reported 50 percent pain relief from spinal cord stimulators.
APAC continues to fight the opioid epidemic and limit the amount of narcotics we prescribe using multi-faceted treatments, including non-narcotic medications, injections, physical therapy, stimulators and acupuncture. As management specialists, we face more scrutiny from insurance companies than any other specialty often having to “jump through hoops” to prove that patients get appropriate treatments approved.
APAC Centers for Pain Management is proud to say we are changing patients’ lives and fighting opioid abuse.
