A huge component to patient care is helping the patient and their caretaker or loved ones feel included and informed in the medical process. By explaining what will take place and providing answers to as many of their questions as we can, we have a positive impact on recovery in many cases. At Maverick, we want to be a resource you can fall back on when your patients pose questions about nerve blocks. Even if you have these answers, it is helpful to know what your patient may ask.
Maverick Medical Education knows that pain is a large part of people’s lives. Whether chronic pain that people figure they simply have to live with, ongoing injuries that are never correctly addressed, or surgical procedures that are trying to help the patient and lead to pain during recovery, pain is a frequent part of many people’s conversations. We know there are alternatives to pain treatment out there, but not all are the best choice.
Chronic migraines are one of the more common pain issues we see from the public. In fact, headaches in general effect over 48% of the population according to Current Pain and Headache. With so many patients complaining of headache pain, better treatments should be readily available. Maverick Medical Education teaches nerve blocks to provide relief for many of these patients.
The field of pain management grows by leaps and bounds every day. By leaning on the extensive knowledge of our Maverick Instructors, our students gain decades of experiences to draw on and learn the nuances that make pain management effective for our practitioners. Our courses are designed to provide that for medical professionals all over the country, through online modules and in person training. The Advanced Pain Management: Chronic Pain Series 3 was specifically designed to provide a comprehensive curriculum of pathology and interventions.
We would be doing our communities a disservice if we didn’t take time to share the knowledge and experience all of our Maverick Educators have gained over the years of practicing medicine. Similarly, we would be doing our communities and students a disservice if we stopped at a single Advanced Course discussing pain management techniques. Our second course focuses largely on pain that originates from the spinal column. The spine contributes to an extraordinary amount of work in the body, so it makes sense that the spine is particularly susceptible to pain from overuse, misuse, or other components of a patient’s day-to-day.
Maverick Medical Education is dedicated to providing quality and comprehensive courses to teach medical practitioners vital techniques. Our research is clinically and academically based and our instructors have decades of experience in the field, we understand the subtle nuances that impact pain management and diagnostic practices. While we cannot, and will not, provide a full course for the purposes of this article, a preview of our Advanced Pain Management 1 Course should provide a taste of how we can improve your skills and knowledge base.
