Less Medical Treatment, Better Outcomes?

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Oct 14, 2014 | 0 Comments

Richard A. Deyo, MD, is a Professor of Family Medicine, Professor of Internal Medicine, and Professor of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Oregon Health and Science University. He has written a new book entitled Watch Your Back. In this book, Professor Deyo argues that far too many people with chronic back pain seek excessive medical intervention. Much of what Professor Deyo writes seems to be designed to take on the pharmaceutical industry for over promoting the benefits of the various pills and creams and injections they sell. That said, the book can offer some good, practical information about dealing with chronic back pain. If nothing else, Professor Deyo summarizes a lot of the treatment options and their apparent worth.  This will allow a person with chronic pain to better evaluate his or her options. 

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
