Telehealth: The Advantages of Telemedicine

The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered dramatic changes throughout everyday life — and in the medical community as well. Not only are providers across the country postponing elective procedures, but many are also encouraging people to avoid in-office appointments to reduce their risk of exposure to this highly contagious coronavirus. But what do you do if you still need health care? Fortunately, Telehealth can help.

How Telehealth works

Why A “Non-surgical” Issue Can Still Cause Pain, And What You Can Do About It!

Surgery is an effective way to deal with certain painful physical problems, but the practice is not a reasonable solution for many spinal issues. Some problems simply cannot be corrected through surgery while others benefit from clinical treatment just as readily and without the risks that accompany surgical solutions. For some people, this means more effective pain management, but that is not a solution to the problem. It just makes you more comfortable. Instead, consider what interventional pain consultants can do to help you manage your condition. Here are just some of the non-surgical treatment options that you can explore.
