DCH is a One Stop Shop to Address Your Pain

Do you suffer from pain during every day activities, at rest, or during active work? We can help. Addressing pain is not a one size fits all model. Every type of pain, and every patient is unique. At Decatur County Hospital, we harness the power of multiple services to ensure we diagnose your pain properly, and provide a solution that meets your needs. By utilizing multiple experts in various types of pain and recovery methods, you can find the best solution for you to get relief from pain.

Many times, people suffer from pain simply because a treatment option is not available to them. We recognize this in our rural community, so we’ve partnered with providers to bring those specialty services to DCH to save you the hassle of traveling away from home to get relief. Our providers cover multiple diagnosis and treatment avenues:

Therapy and rehabilitation – this specialty focuses on long term support and treatment for pain that does not need medication or surgery to correct. Many patients find relief with focused therapy and rehab. By implementing consistent, healthy habits, your pain can be lessened over time.

Chronic pain management – when therapy and rehab are not enough, our chronic pain management clinic can help you address your pain with a medicinal solution. If you have a pain disorder that is an ongoing concern, a long term pain solution might be your best option.

Surgery – we partner with two specialized surgeons to address orthopedic pain issues. Dr. Strittholt provides orthopedic surgical services to address pain in the joints or bones. Dr. Foster provides spine surgical services to address pain related to the spine. In some cases, surgery is the best option to definitively correct an issue with the way your body functions. Surgeries, immediate recovery, and ongoing recovery can be performed right here at DCH. If you need surgery to replace a joint, address a spine injury, or to correct a congenital defect, we welcome you at DCH to receive exceptional care, close to home.
