Encourage Better Bone Health in May: Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month

[fa icon="calendar'] May 14, 2019 2:36:17 PM / by Florida Pain Relief Centers posted in Interventional Pain Medicine, Chronic Pain, Pain Relief, Florida Pain Relief, Osteoporosis

[fa icon="comment"] 0 Comments

Osteoporosis is a common disease that causes broken bones, fractures, and spine problems in millions of people every year.  According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), it is projected that as many as half of all Americans over age 50 will be at risk for broken bones due to Osteoporosis by the year 2020.

But because the disease often develops with no apparent pain or other symptoms, many people are unaware that they even have it until they experience a fracture resulting from the condition.

For this reason, the month of May has been designated as Osteoporosis Awareness and Prevention Month, which focuses on good bone health through prevention, detection and treatment of Osteoporosis. It is a time to educate the public about the causes, risk factors, symptoms of the disease, and the lifestyle changes that can lead to stronger bones in order to help prevent breaks and fractures.

For decades, Dr. John J. Sassano of Florida Pain Relief Centers has truly listened to patients who describe their pain, with unwavering commitment to thoroughly addressing their individual concerns and conditions. Since he has lived with chronic pain in his own life, he  knows firsthand the feelings of emotional and physical suffering, and how this creates a 'prison of pain' for the sufferer.

Dr. Sassano also understands that one of the most difficult parts of living with chronic pain is that patients are often put in the position where they must prove that they have pain before they get any help. They are "guilty until proven innocent."

Neuromodulation Therapy Helps Relieve Pain for Military Veteran

[fa icon="calendar'] Nov 19, 2018 3:22:00 PM / by Florida Pain Relief Centers posted in Interventional Pain Medicine, Medical Care, Spinal Cord Stimulation, Tampa Pain Relief Doctor, Neurostimulation Therapy

In Florida, Tampa area patients are finding substantial pain relief with neuromodulation therapy, (also known as spinal cord stimulation,) which involves an implantable device that "interrupts" pain signals before they reach the brain. The device replaces pain signals with a more pleasant, soothing sensation.

To date, neuromodulation has helped effectively reduce pain for thousands of patients so they could return to their normal activities. It is most commonly recommended for a condition known as Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS), which affects approximately 40 percent of patients who have had previous spinal surgery. 

In the case of a recent Brandon, FL patient, 20 years in the military with multiple injuries and surgeries left him with nerve damage and pain.  After thorough consultation and examination, Dr. Bruce Piszel of Tampa Pain Relief Centers recommended neuromodulation therapy for the patient, who experienced significant relief as a result of the treatment.

Watch (or read) what patient Rob Smith had to say about the results of his neuromodulation therapy...
