I hope everyone had a fun Fourth of July. My wife, who happens to have been born on July 4, 1984, is quick to remind me that the firework display every year is in celebration of her birth. In my house, I don’t argue that fact. However, when my neighbors were still shooting fireworks at 10:30 PM and I have a sleeping 1 and 2 year old (well, he woke up), I quickly became the old man on the porch screaming at the neighborhood kids.

As many of you know, treatment options in MS are changing by the day. I last spoke on the changes to the MS Fee Schedule related to opiates. In an effort to treat without long-term opiate use, physicians, as well as the Commission, are looking for new methods. One of the most modern treatment options, and one being ordered by the Commission routinely, are pain rehabilitation programs. The most popular one in MS is the Pain Rehabilitation Program at Southern Behavioral Medicine Associates. Dr. Geralyn Datz is the Clinical Director of this program, and she was very gracious with her time. She has prepared the article below for my readers which explains the program, success rate and why she feels like it is worth the money long-term. She also tries to dispel any false narratives about programs such as hers. If you have questions or comments after your review, please reach out to myself or Dr. Datz.
I will now hand the mic over to Dr. Datz. Enjoy!
