Risk vs Benefits

Here is a proven fact- Most of our best decisions are made by considering risks versus benefits.

The term 'benefit-risk ratio' is often used as a general term linked to the use of a medicine or treatment. Perceptions of risks versus benefits are influenced to a great extent by the context in which they occur. Thus, the perception of risk may be different from the actual risk. However, in any given situation, the acceptable risk-to-benefit balance is an individual judgment by the patient or the prescriber.

As adults, we ask ourselves and teach our children- do our actions today set us up for a healthier and better future or not. What if we take no action at all? Is that better than acting? All these are decisions you need to make with your healthcare providers regularly. You see, everything we do has risks versus benefits.

Make no mistake, modern science and medicine have developed unprecedented treatment protocols which have changed societies, increasing welfare and human life span. This also includes what we do here. We are continually working on, and improving our treatments to help our patients, including neuropathy and chronic pain patients.

Do YOU Always ASK your doctors- Is the cure worse than the problem? What if, we as doctors and patients took a very strong look at the underlying causes of so many illnesses and treat them first?

What if instead of injecting patients', and suggesting invasive procedures FIRST we both make sure as doctors and patients that all conservative treatment options were exhausted first?

You already know the answer… You understand, as we do, that all good treatment is risks versus benefits! So why not learn more today? Why not take actions that will help you live much more fully, without devastating side effects?
