Dr. Ari Bernstein Shares His Insights to Handle Emergency Care and Pain Management Effectively

Emergency care and pain management go hand in hand. Without the right tools to effectively handle pain management, patients are often left to navigate the difficult process to recovery on their own. Pain management is a crucial step towards recovering from emergency care, and doctors who support their patients with an organic and understanding approach see that the results are more permanent. Dr. Ari Bernstein, MD, takes an individualized approach towards his patients when it comes to emergency care and pain management.

Personalized patient care

D​r. Bernstein is a physician, investor, entrepreneur, and best-selling author of “The Success Formula,” co-authored with Jack Canfield. As an investor in Fruit Street Health, a telemedicine company changing the landscape of healthcare, Dr. Bernstein believes that care at the patient level should always be tailored to their specific needs. “There is no one-size-fits-all solution for emergency care and pain management because every patient is different,” he explains.

A multi-layered approach

Emergency care and pain management must be considered a two-tiered approach. Usually, if someone has landed in emergency care, it is because the body has gone through something particularly traumatic. “Our body is wired to react to pain. It’s about recognizing a defense mechanism and responding accordingly,” states Dr. Bernstein. “Medications can only do so much. We have to trust our bodies to work through the healing process, which takes a delicate balance of medication and healthy living, and if the situation warrants it, physical therapy.”

Understanding pain management

“​A lot of my patients don’t realize that healing is in their control,” says Dr. Bernstein. “I explain to them that we are in this together. Sometimes it is important to coach and educate your patients on pain so that they have a better idea of how to respond, manage it, and recover. Pills aren’t the only solution out there.” Dr. Bernstein is committed to strategies that don’t just treat pain but also the root cause as he has learned from his own experience after going through four spine surgeries and a spinal cord stimulator implant himself. “Emergency care doesn’t mean the pain has to follow the patient forever upon discharge.”


D​r. Bernstein has a unique approach to care because he has seen first-hand what a personalized plan can do for a patient. “I believe that if we are treating just the pain, then we aren’t treating the patient, and that isn’t right,” explains Dr. Bernstein. “Pain has to be managed yes, but people deserve care.” Pain can be a scary thing, and emergency care even scarier. Still, Dr. Bernstein continues to offer excellent care and support, helping his patients towards recovery one step at a time.
