Newport Beach's Pain Management Specialist, Dr. Scott Stoney Releases 'PAIN'
Orange County, CA
Newport Beach's Dr. Scott Stoney of California Rehabilitation and Pain Management Center, recently released a new book entitled "Pain". His main contribution to the book is his evaluation and treatment of fibromyalgia. Dr. Scott Stoney has made a revolutionary change to the way pain management works. Dr. Stoney possesses an innate ability to empathize with his patients because he too had to deal with pain management in his own life as a young child.
Two percent of the population has fibromyalgia, according to U.S Center for Disease Control and Prevention. It is largely under diagnosed and many physicians make the mistake of not listening to the patients who present with fibromyalgia. Dr. Scott Stoney from California Rehabilitation and Pain Management in Newport Beach, CA has a unique treatment for fibromyalgia. His technique offers pain relief surpassing that of traditional treatments and can therefore offer a new lease on life for patients who suffer from fibromyalgia.
Research shows that medicine isn't the only answer for the chronic pain experienced by those suffering from fibromyalgia. In fact, for optimal rehabilitation outcomes in a fibromyalgia patient, the treatment should be tailored to the individual patient by addressing exercise, diet and psychological aspects as well as drugs.
Fibromyalgia is not only a difficult illness for patients who are forced to live with chronic pain and other co-morbid conditions, it is also perplexing to physicians who often do not have the tools necessary to feel comfortable in making an accurate diagnosis or to prescribe a successful treatment regimen. In his discussion of fibromyalgia, medications, and rehabilitation strategies, Dr. Stoney highlights the usefulness of the Fibromyalgia Oswestry Pain Questionnaire as a tool to measure pain management efficacy in this patient population.
