By |2022-09-01T14:02:37+00:00January 27, 2022|Pain Management|

Too many of our population suffer with chronic migraines with little to no relief. While there are some home remedies that can ease the pain that comes with some headaches, it is worth considering an occipital nerve block for patients who are suffering from regular and persistent pain. The occipital nerve block is not only easy to learn in our Maverick Medical Education courses, but easy to administer to patients who are in need of relief.

Breast cancer, unfortunately, is more prevalent and impacting more women every year. While every patient will choose, with their medical team, a different course of action for treatment, many are choosing a surgical option to reduce the risk of future issues. With this emotional decision comes a number of concerns, including the typical post-surgical pain concerns. Maverick Medical Education teaches courses that help provide pain treatment and reduction for patients of all types and has seen an improvement in analgesia with the use of regional anesthesia.

Anesthesia techniques extend far beyond the obvious of numbing an area to pain in order for a medical procedure to take place for the patient. From pre and post-operative care to assisting in healing long term there are a number of ways that anesthesia can benefit patients facing a number of medical concerns. There is a growing amount of research that shows regional anesthesia can have a positive impact on, not only care for cancer treatment patients, but on survival rates as well.

Continuing Education: What It Is and Why It Is Important

By |2022-09-01T14:00:46+00:00July 27, 2021|Course Information, Course News, Maverick News|

Maverick Medical Education isn’t just passionate about teaching others pain relief methods. We are also passionate about making medical providers better versions of themselves, adding new knowledge, techniques, and trade tips that will serve the patients at each of their practices even better after the completion of one, or all, of our courses. Hand in hand with that, each medical professional has to continue their education beyond their years of schooling, through continuing education credits.

Common Patient Questions About Nerve Blocks

A huge component to patient care is helping the patient and their caretaker or loved ones feel included and informed in the medical process. By explaining what will take place and providing answers to as many of their questions as we can, we have a positive impact on recovery in many cases. At Maverick, we want to be a resource you can fall back on when your patients pose questions about nerve blocks. Even if you have these answers, it is helpful to know what your patient may ask.

Managing Pain Without Opioids

Maverick Medical Education was formed with many goals in mind, but one of those goals, which is always in the forefront of our minds, is how to help educate medical professionals around the country in ways that will reduce the number of times opioid prescriptions are given. One of the best ways we can support medical professionals in this attempt is to give multiple resources, techniques, and methods to help prevent and manage pain in their patients.

What We Teach: Advanced Pain Management: Chronic Pain Series II

By |2022-08-31T21:42:00+00:00January 3, 2020|Chronic Pain Management, Course Information, Course News|

We would be doing our communities a disservice if we didn’t take time to share the knowledge and experience all of our Maverick Educators have gained over the years of practicing medicine. Similarly, we would be doing our communities and students a disservice if we stopped at a single Advanced Course discussing pain management techniques. Our second course focuses largely on pain that originates from the spinal column. The spine contributes to an extraordinary amount of work in the body, so it makes sense that the spine is particularly susceptible to pain from overuse, misuse, or other components of a patient’s day-to-day.
