Health Night Out Planned for October 25

Dr. Marco Duran

Dr. Christopher Bailey

Dr. Christopher Bailey and Dr. Marco Duran of the Pain Institute of Southern Arizona will present on chronic pain on Monday, Oct. 25, at 7 p.m. in the MountainView Ballroom.

Chronic pain affects over 86 million people in America, and it resists many medical treatments. Pain has diverse causes. It could be arthritis, complex regional pain syndrome, or neuropathy. Back pain can be due to degenerative discs, facet joints, herniated discs, post-surgical pain, sciatica, scoliosis, or stenosis. Then there is shoulder pain, neck pain, foot and ankle pain, and knee pain.

The Pain Institute of Southern Arizona offers non-surgical, non-invasive treatments for a broad spectrum of pain management.

October’s speakers at Health Night Out, Dr. Christopher Bailey and Dr. Marco Duran, of the Pain Institute of Southern Arizona (PISA), will discuss chronic pain and strategies for treatment. Pain treatments at their clinics include medication, injections, and interventional therapies such as epidurals, radio frequency ablation, spinal and peripheral nerve stimulation, vertebral decompression, and more.
