Chronic Pain Management

Millions of Americans live with chronic pain that conventional medicine has been unable to alleviate. In a column published in the New Haven Register, pain expert Dr. David Katz, MD, urges medical practitioners to change their approach to chronic pain. He recommends taking a holistic approach that factors in underlying disease, diet, sleep, depression, stress and more. Citing his own collaborations with naturopathic doctors in a clinical setting, he wrote, ”It’s important to treat the person in pain, not just the pain in the person.” He also stressed the importance of prevention.
