September is Pain Awareness Month, and at Decatur County Hospital we’re doing our part to serve patients in our rural area who suffer from pain. By providing a variety of services to address your pain close to home, you can get pain relief faster, and save the hassle of traveling to get treatment. The following services are available in the DCH Outpatient Clinic each month:
In this clinic, Chandra Brown treats ongoing pain issues by creating a plan unique to each pain sufferer. Chandra visits DCH four days each month.
Jay Brewer offers pain relief services two days each month, and he works with patients to provide relief through various treatments, including injections.
Three days each month, Elizabeth “Libby” Allen visits the DCH Outpatient Clinic to address pain from autoimmune conditions and other conditions that cause pain in the bones, muscles, joints, and skin. Because of the popularity of this service, starting in December Libby will visit DCH four days each month.
Dr. Strittholt provides orthopedic surgical services to address pain in the joints or bones. His services include total joint replacement, hand surgery (including carpal tunnel and finger trigger release), knee arthroscopy, shoulder surgery, and more. Dr. Strittholt provides surgical services four days each month at DCH.
Dr. Foster provides spine and neck surgery to address pain related to the skeletal system. He visits DCH two days each month to diagnose, treat, and provide ongoing care for those with spine or neck injuries or degenerative conditions.
Our DCH Rehabilitation Services team 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. Our rehab team is available every weekday by appointment.
