Welcome, October 2011

This month’s theme for our magazine is “growth.” Humbly, we know a bit about the topic. Can you believe just three years ago, we started Arizona Pain with two physicians and fewer than five employees? Today, thanks to the many blessings we’ve received and plenty of hard work, we have three locations, seven physicians and more than 150 staff members.

Arizona Pain know growth. Most importantly, this increase in staff and size means we can treat the growing number of patients in chronic and acute pain who need our help. We are thankful to be in this field for many reasons – including its growth in the last 10 years. There are new procedures, technologies and pharmaceuticals we are able to try because of the increase in research and interest in pain management.

We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to his glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of his holy people in the kingdom of light.
– Colossians 1: 9-13

This monthly magazine is one fruit reaped from our growing success, as is our website: ArizonaPain.com We are happy to be able to provide our patients and community with regularly updated health information about pain conditions and treatments.

In this month’s issue, we are happy to include information from our growing chiropractic team about spinal manipulations. Two of our chiropractors explain what to expect when visiting them on the table. We also have a feature article on the healing powers of growing a garden, including an inter- view from a local permaculture expert.

With this, we hope your October brings growth to you – an increase of peace, happiness and health.

From our families to yours, Paul Lynch, MD and Tory McJunkin, MD
