Breakthrough Treatments for Spine and Joint Pain

Jan 31, 2024 02:55PM ● By Jerome Bilaos

When Dr. Stephen Roman, Jr., finished his medical subspecialty training 20 years ago, there were limited options in the treatment of pain. For many years, only minimal changes in offerings to patients became available. Recently, however, many breakthroughs have occurred in the treatment of spinal and joint pain. This includes new technologies such as regenerative medicine which has provided many new options that were not available just a few years ago.

“There are many patients that I have told throughout the years that there was nothing else I could do for them. Now I am inviting many of these patients back to learn about new technologies that were not available when I had last seen them,” shares Dr. Roman. Conditions amenable to new minimally-invasive treatment options include chronic low back pain caused by degenerated spinal discs. These are some of the patients that he is most excited to see because when he last saw them their options were usually limited to surgery or chronic prescription medication use. Other patients benefiting from recent advances include patients seeking alternative treatments to joint surgery.

“It’s an exciting time in medical history,” states Dr. Roman, “and I’m grateful to be a part of this historic leap in our approach to patient care.”

5 Top Tips to Finding Your Next Doctor

1 Keep an Open Mind! Healthcare has come a long way. Today, you have access to practitioners that branch outside of traditional medicine and aim to identify the root causes of conditions while using alternative treatments that may help you get the relief you need. Just because it’s not a pill, doesn’t make it pseudoscience.

2 Build Your Health Care Team. There is no one doctor that can be the be-all-end-all for your health needs. Be sure to have a team of practitioners with different “lenses” and areas of expertise who will treat the root cause and not just the symptom(s).

3   Environment Influences Healing. Health is multi-factorial. Your mental and emotional environment plays a pivotal role in your healing potential. Your doctors and their staff should create an office atmosphere filled with positivity so you can get the most out of your care.

4 Your Story Matters.  Before you begin any treatment, be sure to have a comprehensive consultation to discuss your health concerns. Find practitioners who welcome questions and will take the time to listen and treat you with respect.

5 Report of Findings. When it comes to our health, we often make decisions without understanding the risk versus benefits. Knowledge is an important part of the healing process and is essential to make conscious, informed health decisions. Find practitioners who take the time to explain their exam findings and the recommendations for treatment in ways that make sense to you.
