New Year, New Goals, Better Results: Moving Pain Out of Your Way in 2017

By Dr. Peter Abaci

Like millions of others out there, you may find yourself making resolutions for the New Year. Research shows that almost half of all Americans make New Year’s resolutions, and some of the most common choices, like losing weight or exercising, are health related goals. With all that has gone over the last year with regards to regulating painkillers, the election, and some of the uncertainties surrounding what will change in health care in the coming months, this might be a good time to re-think your pain management plan to make 2017 and beyond the most successful it can possibly be.

A new patient that I saw the other day got me thinking about how much things have changed in a short amount of time in the world of pain management. This particular gentleman had been injured on the job about 15 years ago and ended up with an extensive 4 level fusion in his neck. Over the last decade plus, he had been maintained on opioid painkillers, lost his career, and was on long-term disability. His life seemed to revolve around just getting through each day by relying on medications every few hours, but that all changed when doctors stopped prescribing his medications due to problems with compliance and misuse. Perhaps doctors would have overlooked his missteps a few years ago, but now he was having a hard time finding anyone willing to prescribe him opioids any longer even though he remained convinced that was what he needed the most to get through the day.
