A snapshot of the healthcare sector utilizing statistics from a successful publicly traded multi-service provider shows the issue of pain singularly as leading their caseload with 29% of all cases. Adding other categories relating to the services we provide at Dr. Lou’s Pain Care, the combination of Pain (29%), Spine (13%), and Orthopedic (8%) account for a total of 50% of all cases proving that pain care is a significant (arguably the most significant) single condition in all of healthcare. So it should stand to reason that it’s also the best managed, right? Unfortunately, no!
The fact is that pain is the most poorly managed symptom in family practices, emergency rooms, and walk-in/urgent care clinics. It is well documented in medical literature that for pain to be managed appropriately it must be done so by specialized centres, consisting of various healthcare professionals with pain management as their primary focus. Pain care is exactly and specifically what Dr. Lou’s Pain Care is all about!
