The biopsychosocial model of pain underscores the scientific reality that a purely physical-sensory-based diagnosis can never sufficiently address the multidimensional nature of painful conditions [tissue pain generators, emotional and sociodynamic components].
The World Health Organization, NIH and other authoritative medical bodies have recently said categorically that pathoanatomy [the study of the body to determine causes for disease] alone has not been a successful method for the diagnosis of chronic pain.
It is clear that the medical community is travelling through a “fog”, and has no way to diagnose musculoskeletal pain. A new Compass, the NeuroPhysiologic Pain Profiles (the NP1 & NP3) can solve the problem. They fill the void the World Health Organization and others identified.
When adjustors or case managers are lost in a fog created by conflicting medical opinions or apparently inappropriate treatment suggestions; and they are unsure of the correct course to follow, they have nothing to lose and everything to gain by taking an innovative approach [The NPG Compass]. With scientifically vetted technology – uniquely utilized, it enables the claim gate keepers to negotiate with treating physicians a more appropriate course towards pain resolution.
Currently, there is a puzzle that the medical community can’t solve.
The medical community can’t solve the puzzle because they don’t know about the NeuroPhysiologic Pain Profiles. The NP1 Assessment (Compass) provides a screening tool allowing adjustors and case managers to set a safe course when in the fog. It isn’t definitive, but gives you enough information to chart a safer course.
When approaching a rocky coastline (potential surgery, epidurals or opioids), one needs to be absolutely sure of the course you steer. The NP3 Assessment provides definitive information needed to set that safe course. It is the Compass that tells you exactly which direction you need to travel.
There are other issues you need to work out, but you will be sure you are on the most correct and safest course to pain resolution.
