“When a patient with cervical or low back pain visits me, I first ask them if their pain interferes with their activities. If it doesn’t, I encourage them by saying: ‘It’s okay to do nothing, because back pain often goes up and down, but won’t necessarily worsen.’ When neck pain or low back pain interferes with your sleep or activities, then it’s time to do something. It’s time for me to identify the source of your pain and treat it.” – Dr. Pauza
IDENTIFY THE SOURCE OF YOUR PAIN
During your consultation, Dr. Pauza considers everything: your symptoms, tests, procedures, and lifetime goals. Dr. Pauza recognizes other doctors may have caused you to go around and around without logical answers. Many spine specialists don’t yet acknowledge pain caused by leakage of a disc’s nucleus pulposis, caused by annular disc tears. Dr. Pauza will identify the source of your symptoms and offer simple solutions, unavailable elsewhere.
UNPARALLELED PERSONAL CARE
Dr. Pauza gives all of his patients his personal cell phone number. Therefore, as his patient, you may call him 24/7, something unheard of among most specialists.
