Denali Healthcare is an integrated healthcare network dedicated to a Holistic Approach to chronic pain, control of the overuse of narcotic medications, and alternative medicine. It was developed by Dr. Bob Townsend, in response to the ineffective use of high dose narcotic pain medications. The key point of the ‘Denali Way’ is to attack pain with fresh eyes and without personal bias. The results are what drive us, and we work hard to achieve those results. To improve your quality of life with and pain management, come to Denali Healthcare. We have convenient locations throughout Michigan.
The ‘Denali Way’ begins with answering your questions:
‘What can I expect pain management medication to do?’
‘Why did I become dependent on narcotic pain medication?’
‘Why can’t I talk to my doctor about an alternative solution to traditional pain medication?’
Yours are questions that deserve answers and we are here to help our patients get those answers. Reasonable expectations, understanding of how and why things happen the way they do, and a willingness to work with us are the keys to a better Quality of Life the Denali Way.
The Denali Way of Rational Pain Management is to combine baseline pain control with scheduled medication and a flexible response to the peaks of breakthrough pain with ‘as needed’ medication. The lowest effective dose of medication is used for each segment of the strategy.
We use scheduled medications as a long acting narcotic combined with a Motrin like medication to make the narcotic work better. This is taken on a schedule, every day, to provide a baseline pain control. This baseline pain control is key to overall improvement in your quality of life- it is the cornerstone of ‘rational pain management’.
Ideally, this will reduce a patient’s average pain by about 50% and will be adjusted until a 50% reduction is achieved.
An ‘as needed’ medication is generally a short acting narcotic that is used when a flare of pain occurs. We generally give these pain medications with the direction to take ‘every 6 hours as needed.’ This patient directed self-medication in response to acute on chronic pain is the flexibility a patient needs to go with the baseline pain control of the scheduled medications. Together they form the concept of rational pain management.

Holistic Health is best defined as an approach to medicine that treats the entire person, not a particular organ system. In chronic pain management, for example, we deal with chronic pain. Chronic pain has a cause, it has a character (dull, burning, tearing), it has a modality- never pain vs mechanical pain. Each in turn needs to be addressed.
But what is the difference between pain and suffering? Pain is the result of the disease process itself, the damaged disk or the compressed sciatic nerve. It can be acute, chronic or more commonly chronic with flares of acute pain. Suffering involves the response of the patient to the pain. Constant pain in a young person, one that reasonably expects to be active and pain free, is very depressing. Their activities are limited more than their peers, and emotionally they suffer. There is a psychological aspect to their pain, we refer to that as suffering.
