What to consider when you’re looking for a pain management physician? Here’s some thoughts about Multimodal pain management from Rany Abdallah MD, PhD, MBA.
Scientific research supports the notion that pain condition treatments aren’t just individualized to each patient. They are also “multimodal” (in other words, the combination of multiple pain therapies). That’s because multimodal therapies produce the best outcomes while minimizing the potential for harm. Interestingly as pain management specialists, we find that what works for one patient’s condition certainly might not work for someone else’s. Successful treatment of pain conditions must be customized to suit each patient. That’s why it’s not wise to assume what friends and family recommend for you, because they say, “It worked for me.”
If you want to improve your quality of life, set an appointment to meet with Rany Abdallah MD, PhD, MPH to set goals focused on multimodal treatments. Combined therapies not only reduce pain, but also help us focus on individualized treatment that represents the most significant advances in the field of pain management.
Below is a list of pain conditions that we treat at APICO Pain Management™. If your pain condition is not on this list, please give our office manager a call to see if we’ve added new treatments that will help you. Dr. Abdallah looks forward to meeting you, at any of his three Delaware offices.
