This content was provided by Dr. Merrill "I try to figure out what is the cause of a patients problem or complaint. I then try and offer the patient options for treatment which include activity modification, exercises, both at home and in therapy, over the counter medications such as ibuprophen and naproxen, injections and surgery.
Narcotic pain medications are reserved for acute conditions such as fractures and immediately after surgery.
Patients are included in making the treatment plan. I will give recommendations and usually suggest what I would want for a family member of mine."

Thank you for your feedback. I will work on being more informative. At times there isn't an understanding of, or explanation for one's pain. I try to explain that to people as well as explain to them when I do understand the problem. It is much easier to explain a situation that I understand, than one that we as a profession don't understand.
