Treating Pain Responsibly in the Greater Washington Area

Addressing the Surgeon General's letter to physicians.



We firmly believe that the sooner a patient can be treated by a pain specialist using interventional methods the less likely that patient is to be prescribed a long-term medication schedule.

    LEESBURG, VA, September 13, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Surgeon General, Vivek H. Murthy, M.D., M.B.A. recently sent out a letter to all American physicians urging us to do everything in our power to address the opioid epidemic.

The opioid epidemic is a very real and serious situation, so too is the need to treat pain responsibly.

Newbridge Spine & Pain Center is one of the Greater Washington area's premier, interventional pain management facilities dedicated to treating pain. Our physicians are Anesthesiologists with sub-specialty training in pain management.

There are many misconceptions about the 'pain management' specialty resulting from the mismanagement and over-prescribing of addictive painkillers. However, our specialization, interventional pain management, addresses both the rising opioid epidemic and the need to treat pain.

Treating pain in a conservative, responsible manner is our daily commitment.

We do this by:
- Utilizing non-surgical, interventional pain procedures to quickly and effectively reduce pain levels.
- In cases where medication management is unavoidable, we aim to reduce reliance on pharmacologic substances, opioids & narcotics by maintaining low doses and outlining treatment plans that take a multi-modal approach to include; weight-loss, physical therapy and/or counselling for example.

The Newbridge team spends a significant amount of energy encouraging our fellow healthcare providers to refer to interventional pain management before prescribing or laying out a treatment plan. This is because our therapeutic procedures work at the onset of pain as well as for chronic pain conditions.

We firmly believe that the sooner a patient can be treated by a pain specialist using interventional methods the less likely that patient is to be prescribed a long-term medication schedule.

Most pain complaints relate to pain originating throughout the spine, however, an interventional pain doctor can treat acute and chronic pain all throughout the body to include the limbs and joints in the peripheral body.

Newbridge Spine & Pain Center is open 5 days a week and offers 4 convenient locations to serve patients throughout the Greater DC region: Leesburg, Frederick Waldorf and Prince Frederick. View Doctor bios at http://newbridgespine.com/our-providers
