Dr. John Michels, MD ( — https://johnmichelsmd.com ) is pleased to announce that his website has been revised to provide information about the types of comprehensive and current techniques utilized in the practice. The renewed range of pain management techniques typically includes those which are minimally invasive and image-guided. The purpose is to minimize a variety of painful conditions, as well as to restore function which has become compromised.
As a former First Round Draft Choice and Super Bowl Champion with the Green Bay Packers, the NFL career of Dr. Michels was cut short due to an injury. Dr. Michels went on to complete medical training, as well as that of Diagnostic Radiology, and Interventional Pain Management. The doctor is double board-certified in Diagnostic Radiology and Pain Medicine. This knowledge background allows him to provide positive relief for a plethora of painful conditions in patients.
The revolutionary interventional treatments and procedures available to patients at the practice are the most advanced, both in diagnostic techniques and treatments of back pain. Comprehensive physical examination includes spinal pain mapping procedures. These advanced methods are employed when imaging studies or physical exams are unable to determine the etiology of the patient's pain. Mapping techniques are applied through selective nerve root blocks, medial branch nerve blocks of the facet joints, sacroiliac joint injection, peripheral nerve blocks, provocative discography and sympathetic blocks in the diagnosis of low back pain of undetermined etiology.
A range of solutions and techniques are applied to reduce or eliminate the level of chronic pain. These solutions can include physical and occupation therapy, behavioral modification, manipulative therapy and aerobic exercises. Coadjuvant pain medications may be utilized in some cases.
In a recent interview, Dr. Michels explained, "I offer a multidisciplinary approach to patients' chronic pain. Through conservative and interventional procedures, my goal as a pain management doctor is to minimize dependence on opioids, improve quality of life, improve function, and improve pain coping skills so the patient may better adapt to their daily activities and get back to their normal daily function."
