Pain management treatment in Decatur and Atlanta is the topic of this video blog post by Dr. Castanet. He discusses the typical indications for pain management, the benefits of pain management, and his most effective, non-surgical, non-invasive, alternative treatment.

“I’m a proponent of pain management when it is indicated, and I do refer patients for pain management, including epidural steroid injections, but these are much over-used now in medicine. Most referring physicians simply do what everyone else does, in accordance with what everyone else knows- they all follow the same “standard of care” algorithm for spinal treatment. The unfortunate thing is that most physicians don’t know about the clinical efficacy of my alternative treatment- non-surgical spinal decompression, so they don’t refer patients for it”.

“And tragically, if you do injections instead of spinal decompression treatment, one day the injections will stop helping, and your spine will be more degenerated. So you will have missed the earlier opportunity to partially, albeit modestly, regenerate your spine to actually make it better, anatomically and histologically”.  If you take every opportunity of pain to spinally decompress the cause of your pain, you will, theoretically, prolong the lifespan of your spine.  This is the wise and intelligent way to mitigate the demands and micro-injuries to your discs and spine.
