Interventional Pain Management

  • Pharmacological pain management-new-jersey

At Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation we realize that for some patients, the therapeutic approaches to pain management may not be enough, resulting in a very limited ability to rehabilitate a person to full movement, strength and function, which are the ultimate goals. In these instances we are pleased to have: Dr. Arun Kandra, MD, Pain Management Consultant at Natural Medicine & Rehabilitation.

With this addition, we are able provide a one stop solution for patient’s by bringing the combination of medical and non-pharmacological approaches under one facility – with doctors who work together and communicate more efficiently, which would translate into better patient care.

Pain motivates a person to protect the damaged body part while it heals.  There are many options for dealing with pain – masking it, managing it or preventing it.  Seeking medical advice to act upon your pain correctly is critical.  Alleviating pain with medication is a short term fix and may be appropriate, particularly in the early going.  It can reduce inflammation and swelling in order to help you move past the pain and start your rehabilitation.  However, if taking pain medication is the only thing you are doing, you may not be dealing with an underlying cause of pain, most probably leading to greater problems and possibly to long term side effects if, in particular, they are used for extended
periods of time without medical supervision.

Our goal of pain management at NMR is to identify the mechanical and functional cause of your pain, not only symptom relief.  Treatment plans are designed to decrease pain, accelerate healing, improve mobility, strength and function, and teach skills needed to prevent problems in the future.

Ideally we would like to prevent pain from ever happening to us.  Unfortunately there is no guarantee on what life has in store for us.  There are a multitude of reasons why some people suffer from arthritis, fibromyalgia, osteoporosis or cancer. But with NMR’s ‘whole view’ perspective of the patient (managing weight, eating healthy, tempering stress and exercising), you will best be able to manage your pain, optimize function, get strong again and age healthfully.

Dr. Kandra is double board certified in Anesthesiology and Pain Management and is dedicated to the treatment of chronic pain symptoms for patients. He is trained at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, one of the country’s top Pain Management training programs. He is available on site for consultation, examination and to begin the management of your pain.
