I have gone to several pain management groups around the Oklahoma City area and have finally found Dr. Justin Porter. My first visit with me he explained that he had been in contact with my back doctor ( unheard of two doctors talking with each other) and they had decided on a treatment for me. I had a shot that first day instead of coming back putting me out and all the other things I have done before to get things done. I have not felt this good in years and I have had shots before but he knew where to place the injection. I am not on medication of each the others wanted and didn't help. I have now been back for a second injection not because I was in great pain but mainly as a precaution since I have been over doing it; as we all tend to do once we are better. I would highly reccomend Dr. Porter to everyone that needs help. I have been giving out his cards to the rest of my doctors for them to reccomend him that is how highly I have faith in him. I am going to the office on 89th since it is closer to my location but I would drive further.

I have read some of the reviews and I must be going to a different Dr. John W. Nelson. Yes, sometimes his staff is a little flighty and doesn't always have a sense of urgency but that you find with many Dr.s office personnel. As far as Dr. Nelson is concerned, I have been under his care for almost 7 years and have nothing but praise for him and the care I have received from him. One of the first things he told me was that I know my body better than him and I need to tell him what my pains are. We have tried several different pain management procedures, some worked , some have not. I am in the process of slowing down my daily intake of pain meds and we talk about the effects it is having on my body each visit. The day will come when I no longer need to see Dr. Nelson but I will always give his name to anyone that lives with chronic pain. I have seen many Doctors in my 65 years and he is in the Top 5 for the care he has provided me.

Professional, Compassionate, Knowledgeable, Trustworthy. I had shingles, and thought I would be in weeks if not months of pain. I found Dr. Mitchell and instead weeks or months turned into a short couple of weeks. I highly recommend him. He goes above and beyond your expectations. His talent is superb A+++.
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.
