Why are you not getting better?

If you continue to suffer from foot and or joint pain, a soft tissue injury or a wound that is not healing, you need to stop and ask why am I not getting better? Is it my diet? Not enough exercise? Do I need to see a different doctor and get a second opinion?

The bottom line these days is patients and their families need to take a serious interest in their injury or illness and do some homework educating themselves. Patients need to be their own advocate because the fact is, there isn’t anyone more incentivized to get you better than yourself. First, educate your self on what exactly you have been diagnosed with that is causing your pain or reduced life style. Is it Plantar Fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis? Is it Osteoarthritis in the knee, ankle, elbow or shoulder? Do you have an ulcer or wound that is not healing? Are you gaining weight because you don’t exercise due to pain? Once you understand your injury, its time to explore the options, therapies and technologies that are available.

It’s very possible that your physician or hospital is not up to date on the newest technology or therapies. Search the Internet regarding your diagnosis and see what alternatives are being used compared to the therapy you are using. Sommita Medical represents specialty technology products including amniotic MSC stem cell products have demonstrated remarkable results in wound healing and joint pain relief.

If getting better is a priority, then you owe it to yourself to read about your options and do something about it and fix your pain yourself. No one else is more motivated to do it, especially your insurance company.
