Unpopular opinion: Money CAN buy health

When money CAN buy health
“Go spend some money,” a nurse once told me when I sought out advice.

Thinking about that incident still pisses me off, even though I’m a long way from being that broke student. But to be fair, she wasn’t wrong.

Not every treatment is appropriate for every person or issue. Our pain management clinicians will guide your selection of the best treatment plan for you. Their recommendations will come based on your unique situation. People often erroneously think of treatment by a pain management specialist as consisting of only narcotic “pain killers.” However, the practice of pain medicine or pain management is diagnosis driven just like other medical specialties. Just as one goes to a cardiologist for an evaluation of heart disease and receives treatment based on a unique diagnosis, a visit to a pain management specialist results in unique treatment because every patient with pain is also different. The discipline of pain medicine is concerned with the prevention, evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation of painful disorders. Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined. There are approximately 116 million Americans with chronic pain, defined as pain that has lasted more than three months and 25 million people with acute pain. Like other doctors, the pain management specialist must examine each patient and create a treatment plan based on the patient’s symptoms, examination and other findings. For example, the cardiologist must first examine you and make several determinations. These include deciding whether your heart disease will respond to weight loss and exercise, whether you have high blood pressure and need medication to lower your blood pressure or whether your cholesterol is elevated or whether you have a blockage and need an interventional procedure or as a last resort, whether you might need to be referred to a cardiac surgeon for coronary bypass surgery. First of all, it is important to understand that there are different types of spinal or orthopedic pain. One might have muscular pain, ligamentous pain, joint pain, bone pain, pain due to a herniated disks, pain from a fracture, or pain from a pinched nerve or a nerve injury. Pain medicines are prescribed based upon the source of the pain. Some patients who come to pain management never need pain medications. They may respond to an injection, other intervention, bracing, or to physical therapy. Our knowledge has increased to where we understand more on how poor posture and walking improperly all perpetuate musculoskeletal pain. With sophisticated use of exercises, tailored to a patient’s specifics needs, physical therapy may be helpful. An evaluation in physical therapy may reveal that the patient’s pain is a result of poor movement, tight muscles, stiff muscles, weak musculature, or postural problems. For example, we know that patients who have degenerative disk disease, where the disk between two bones has started to wear and tear, can decrease the pressure on the disk by doing exercises to increase your core musculature and eliminate or reduce back pain. Like the cardiologist who performs interventional procedures such as cardiac catheterizations, pain management physicians perform interventional procedures to eliminate or reduce pain, and surgery as in other areas of medicine should always be the last resort. When you initially go to your cardiologist because of a minor problem, I am sure that most of you would not ask “do I need surgery?” One usually wants to explore other options before surgical interventions are explored. From experience, I have learned that patients do best with treatment by a pain management specialist when they come with the same open mind and attitude where they are willing to explore numerous options and not become focused primarily on getting narcotics or thinking that surgery is their only option.

On the skin front

Know what disappeared once I solved my money problems? My intense eczema. It was a horrendous cycle – financial stress led to eczema that required expensive cream that didn’t exactly help the financial strain and made everything worse until the core money issue was dealt to. My stress eczema got so bad I couldn’t even wear a bra for some time. Now I just have to deal with the scars, and rosehip oil (again, thank you money) is helping with that.

People might need something deeper than on what is on the surface skin. Some people need a surgery and need money for it, which money can get a surgery done. If anyone is ever needed a knee surgery replacement or a surgery done specifically on the knee. I recommend getting it from knee replacement in green bay. They are professionals and are great on what they do. they are also known on the great services they provide on the patients.

Know what else disappeared and reappeared accordingly? My period. Not that I missed it from a practical perspective, but I knew its absence was a bad sign.

On the respiratory front

I quite like breathing. Unfortunately it can be a struggle sometimes. Years of living in cold damp New Zealand rentals will do that to you. Buying a house is the only thing that’s made a real difference in this area.

On the intimacy front

Okay, maybe a bit of a cheat here. A good sex life isn’t a requirement for health and wellbeing but it’s nice to have. Post-dinner bloat is a mood killer. A dirty house is a mood killer. But for me, money stress is the biggest turnoff of all.

    I’m with you. I’ve been paying out-of-pocket for psychiatrist visits for years, and medication has really helped me keep anxiety under control. Also, I still take medication for acne (yup, even at 32!) Not being able to afford management of these two chronic conditions would make me very unhappy.

    Unpopular in NZ maybe but reality here in the US. If you don’t have money, you can’t afford healthcare – it’s as simple as that. Also, while sex isn’t a requirement to health and well being, there are a lot of health benefits to sex provided that its consensual, STD-free, and both parties get pleasure. So not a cheat at all.

      I was going to say, I don’t think you’ll hear a lot of opposition on this from American readers! At least have Medicaid expansion now for the lowest income earners, but there’s still a ton of people struggling between premiums and deductibles and tax penalties.

    Totally agree with you. Money can buy health! You get access to the best doctors, medicine, treatments, etc. Money touches more than our ability to pay bills.

    Money touches every aspect of our lives!

    I’ve been buying my health this year: firstly, MyFoodBag meals. I’m paying for the convenience so that I’m less likely to resort to takeaways.

    Most importantly, though, I’ve been paying for therapy. I started seeing a counsellor. I don’t qualify for any assistance now that I’m 25 and earning well, but I don’t mind. It’s been a huge, and important, investment.

    A friend of mine got braces, and I think next year I’ll be looking at getting braces again to correct the poor orthodontics I got as a very young teenager.

    It’s a tough pill to swallow to realise how much money actually buys you – the most elite and wealthy it even buys them the ability to evade the law, fast track immigration, manipulate governments and more..

    For Tristan and I, money will buy us children. We need a lot of money for the slightest chance of children. IVF, adoption, money money money… If we were born into “old money” it wouldn’t even be a barrier, just a blip. It really gives you a pit in your stomach when you think of the barriers between you and what you ache for is – money.

    Even in Canada, where folks are often quick to say that we have free healthcare, money makes a big difference. Sure, cancer treatment (for example) is covered provincially but travel to specialists, hotels, food, gas etc. that all costs a lot of money and particularly for people who live outside of major cities it can be very expensive to get treatment.

    Ugh, I agree. I actually have a draft in the works on the obnoxious cost of mental health care right now.
