Race Against Pain Coming to California
Date:9/25/2007

diction, Roman met a St. Louis pain specialist who implanted a revolutionary spinal cord stimulator device in him. Now he is finally free of pain and pursuing his lifelong dream of becoming a winning race car driver as a way of highlighting the hope of a normal life for thousands of people in chronic pain for a variety of reasons, not just amputation.

"Now that I have my life back, I am using my new profile as a race car driver to talk with doctors and patients about the alternatives to living with chronic pain in every city where I race," Roman says enthusiastically.

Roman is encouraging people living with chronic pain, and their families, to visit an educational website that is fittingly called http://www.RaceAgainstPain.com. On the website, chronic pain sufferers and their families can locate a pain specialist near where they live and can share their experiences with other victims of chronic pain.

Pain Is a Major Healthcare Concern

An estimated 3 million people suffer from chronic pain so severe that they can't work. It is further estimated that over 50 million patients suffer from chronic pain due to back, leg and hip problems, chemotherapy, amputation, diabetes, facial nerve problems, HIV infections, multiple sclerosis, shingles and spine surgery.

Iraqi War Veterans

Many veterans returning from the Iraq War are suffering from chronic pain from various causes. These brave soldiers will often require caring pain specialists." said Kevin Coleman, M.D. who is the St. Louis pain specialist who treated Mike Roman with a spinal cord stimulator.

"There are a number of ways to treat neuropathic pain that occurs when nerves are injured, cut or damaged. Modalities used can range from oral medications to more aggressive techniques such as spinal cord stimulation. Every patient is different and requires an individual pain treatment plan," added Dr. Coleman.
