Dr Tariq Arif was very informative and fair in my treatment after an automobile accident. He provided descriptions of the soft tissue injuries which he diagnosed, offered further treatment, suggested "self-help" strategies and was quite receptive to my returning after a couple weeks if the self-help therapies were ineffective. I admit the approach of having a company search accident records and solicit business is "unusual" in my experience, but had they not called, I would not have known what kind of help to seek.

Dr. Ellis helped me get relief from severe chronic pain, he is fantastic. I went to see Dr. Ellis twice for two different accidents and he is the greatest Doctor in the whole wide world. He took the time to listen and he really cared about me. He even took care of my daughters injuries. I will be sending everyone I know to Dr. Ellis.

I refer all my patients here who have been in an auto accident. They have specialized care that focuses on whiplash and related injuries. Also they can refer right in the hospital to other specialists.

Dr. Shahid is very professional and upfront. I like the fact that he really cares about his patients and doesn't just hand out narcotics. Will recommend him to everyone I know. ...

Tips & Advices
Several forms of pain management exist that are not approved typically treated by physicians or covered by health insurance plans. These include therapies like acupuncture, for example, or herbal preparations sold in stores. Before beginning any form of treatment or medication not approved by a doctor, it’s a good idea to still reach out to a physician or expert in alternative medicine for advice, or conduct some research online first.
Managing pain in children can be complicated, as kids may have more difficulty communicating their pain to doctors. Children also need to be more carefully monitored when taking most medications.
Health insurance might cover a selection of approved pain management therapies. Every insurance plan is different, so patients should check with their provider to make sure.
Patients might be instructed to continue therapy at home, either through regular exercise or specific treatment. Some people also find that getting frequent rest, taking warm baths or avoiding certain foods, for example, can help manage pain.
Side effects depend on the exact drugs and dosages used, as well as the disease being treated and many other factors. Some pain-relieving drugs, especially opioids, are known to cause drowsiness. Many antidepressants also cause a variety of adverse effects. Doctors must work closely with patients to minimize these side effects in the course of treatment.
