Producing an estimated $70 billion a year in medical costs, time away from work and workers’ compensation claims, pain (particularly back pain) is recognized as a major problem across the United States. What’s more is that chronic or ongoing pain disables more people than cancer or heart disease. While clear distinctions have been made in regard to sudden, acute pain and chronic, ongoing pain, there is one important connection. For instance, when an acute pain injury is not treated successfully, it can become a chronic pain condition. Thus, it’s important to understand that if you are suffering from acute pain, seeking appropriate treatment and pain management early is important. Similarly, for those experiencing chronic pain, there are still valuable treatment options to dramatically reduce your pain and improve range of motion.
While integrated forms of pain management continue to evolve, the study of neuroplasticity is also on the forefront of chronic pain prevention. In essence, researchers have discovered a critical element of how the nervous system processes pain. It doesn’t only learn information, it remembers pain, which some believe leads to the development of chronic pain in a large number of individuals. Even so, while studies continue to explore a way to stop chronic pain from occurring, a combination of new technologies, medication and non-surgical modalities provide exciting options for reducing one’s pain.

They treated me after two different injuries and I now have full range of motion, am pain-free, and feel like I’m good as new again. I’d highly recommend Dr. Surloff and Dr. Hochman – they’re amazing at what they do and they really care about helping you get better. Plus they’re more than just chiropractic – physical therapy, massage, IDD therapy and more.
In all my years of going to a Dr. I’ve never had someone with better bed side manners, personable, friendly and genuinely interested in your health care. His staff are the best, clean and punctual.
If you’re looking for a professional that has a heart, then go to Georgia Spinal and “stand up straight” again!.
I have had IDD, chiropractic, massage and physical therapy with them over the last few years and have nothing but good things to say about this practice. Everyone there is super friendly and you can tell that Dr. Hochman is genuinely concerned for your wellness
