(1888 PressRelease) Dr. Stuart B. Krost, MD, is
board certified by the American Academy of
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation and the
American Academy of Pain Management. Boca Raton
and Delray Florida have lost pain management
doctors in the last two months Patients in that
area need help. He now is accepting new patients
in need of help. His office is a 10 minute drive
from Boca/Delray. Insurance is accepted. West
Palm Beach-Boca Raton, FL - Dr. Krost earned his
undergraduate degree graduating cum laude from
State University of New York at Stony Brook, Long
Island, NY, and his medical degree from State
University of New York at Syracuse. He completed
his general surgical internship at North Shore
University Hospital, an affiliate of Cornell
University Medical College, Manhasset, NY and his
physical medicine and rehabilitation residency at
State University of New York Health Science
Center at Brooklyn in NY, where he served as
chief resident. Dr. Krost is certified in
thermography interpretation and is a certified
independent medical examiner (CIME). He serves as
a liaison of SUNY (State University of New York)
Health Science Center at Brooklyn to the American
Academy of Physical Medicine and
Rehabilitation. One Of The Best Kept Secrets In
Medicine. The medical specialty of Physiatry,
also known as Physical Medicine and
Rehabilitation, is a comprehensive and
multidisciplinary approach that improves function
and relieves pain without surgical
intervention.Chronic Pain Stuart B. Krost, MD,
P.A. Chronic pain is one of the most frequent
causes of suffering and disability in the Western
world, and one of its most pressing healthcare
issues. The University of Utah Health Sciences
Center reports that chronic pain affects about 80
million Americans and is the third leading cause
of impairment in the United States, after cancer
and heart disease. According to Washington
University School of Medicine, chronic pain can
lead to loss of employment and income and to
depression, fear, isolation and anxiety. Marital
and family dysfunction can result. Persons
suffering from chronic pain often describe their
pain as unbearable.It can interfere with their
lives to the point that their sleep is disturbed,
causing fatigue, depression, declining
participation in work and leisure activities and
disruption of family life. Yet, according to
Stuart B. Krost, MD, who is board certified by
the American Academy of Physical Medicine and
Rehabilitation and the American Academy of Pain
Management, many chronic pain sufferers can find
the help they need.

The field of physiatry originated after the two
World Wars, as returning soldiers came home with
brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, amputation
and other disabling traumas, educates Dr. Krost.
This specialty developed to enable physicians to
identify their patients physical impairments and
functional disabilities and then rehabilitate
them back to improved functional independence,
restoring them to productive lifestyles. Today,
Dr. Krost uses this little-known yet extremely
powerful field of traditional medicine to treat
patients in acute or chronic pain from auto
accidents, sports injuries and physical injuries
at work, and those who suffer spinal cord
injuries, brain injuries, strokes or amputations.
Comprehensive approach The field of physiatry not
only addresses pain but also takes advantage of
the pain relief provided to rehabilitate the
patient and treat the pain generator that is
causing the problems. We do more than just block
pain, notes Dr. Krost. We are focused on
diagnosing where the pain is coming from,
differentiating which pain generator is actually
causing the problem and specifically addressing
that pain generator to relieve pain and restore
function. For instance, for a patient with lower
back pain, a physiatrist would determine whether
the pain was caused from a muscular component, a
ligament component, a joint component, a disc
component or a nerve component. In addition to
diagnostic imaging such as x-rays, MRIs, or CT
scans, we also use diagnostic injections or
blocks to discover the specific pain generator.
Diagnostic injections and blocks can sometimes
act as both diagnostic and therapeutic tools.Dr.
Krost offers many procedures, including epidural
injections, facet blocks, BOTOX, percutaneous
discectomy and electrodiagnostic testing, says
Dr. Krost. Percutaneous discectomy is a minimally
invasive procedure for treatment of herniated
discs. It is delivered through a needle rather
than through open surgery with the ultimate goal
of relieving pressure on the exiting nerve root
as well as relieving pain. An electromyogram, or
EMG, is a diagnostic study that provides
information about the integrity of the muscles
and nerves in the body. It is typically ordered
by a physician to evaluate for muscle or nerve
damage, can help diagnose whether or not the
nerves are being pinched and can be helpful when
correlating findings of an MRI. Once we have
determined the pain generator, we can outline a
treatment plan for that specific problem, points
out Dr. Krost. Each generator will have a
different treatment approach. What makes this
field of medicine so effective is that we
consider the patient as a whole. We not only
determine the medical problem contributing to a
patients complaints but we also consider how it
affects their functional ability, vocation and
quality of life. Treatment is unique in that we
combine medicinal and non-medicinal measures,
offering treatment options to avoid medication
when possible. We consider both the physical
aspects of our patients conditions and how they
affect them psychologically. Physical therapy
Once the pain is relieved, a window of
opportunity opens for rehabilitation. Physical
therapy can be a very important element in terms
of rehabilitation when neurologic, muscular and
skeletal problems are causing the pain or
impaired function, says Dr. Krost. As a
physiatrist, I can actually write a prescription
for the therapist to follow, rather than merely
writing an evaluation and treatment prescription,
leaving it up to the therapist to design a
program. By ensuring the programs specificity
based on the evaluation, we can offer our
patients better results in fewer treatments. And
we not only treat our patients, but we also
educate them in methods they can use to help
themselves at home. Dr. Krost believes that
education can be key to a successful result.
Patients should leave their physicians offices
with a full understanding of their conditions and
treatment options, insists Dr. Krost.It is
critical that physicians listen to their patients
and that there is full discourse. In keeping
with his philosophy, Dr. Krost offers a bilingual
staff and encourages the public to further
educate themselves on the field of physiatry.

managing the patient with opioids, it is
important to establish the differences among
physical dependence, tolerance and
addiction. The American Society of Addiction
Medicine as well as the American Pain Society and
American Academy of Pain Management define
physical dependence as a state of adaption that
is manifested by a drug class for which specific
withdrawal syndrome can be produced by abrupt
cessation, rapid dose reduction, decreasing blood
levels of the drug, and/or administration of an
antagonist. Tolerance, however, refers to a state
of adaption in which exposure to a drug induces
changes that result in diminution of one or more
of the drug effects over time. Neither dependence
or tolerance in and of itself is indicative of
addiction. Addiction is defined by the American
Academy of Pain Management and American Pain
Society as well as the American Society of
Addiction Medicine as a primary chronic,
neurobiological disease, with genetic,
psychosocial, and environmental factors
influencing its development and manifestations.
It is characterized by behaviors that include one
or more of the following Impaired control over
drug use, compulsive use, continued use despite
harm, and cravings.

Abuse, however, is generally characterized by
conscious, often psychosocial motivated use of
illicit substances and medication outside the
scope of usual medical practices, but the patient
has the ability to stop the drug when harmed.
Addicts, however, cannot stop use despite harm.
The majority of legitimate pain patients do not
develop an addiction to their analgesic
medication. There is a biological normal
phenomenon to develop issues related to tolerance
and dependence. It is the physicians
responsibility to address issues related to
tolerance and dependence by monitoring patients
carefully on a regular basis and adjust
medication accordingly to avoid sequelae of
tolerance as well as dependence. Dictated but not
