    Dr. Russell Beecher, Moab Regional Hospital’s new visiting specialist, will give a presentation and answer questions on pain management techniques as part of Moab Regional Hospital’s “Dinner with a Doc” series from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Oct. 15. The event is free and dinner is provided, according to Kate Jagla of MRH.

    “Moab Regional Hospital has been steadily increasing available services and is pleased to announce Dr. Beecher’s addition as a visiting specialist, said Jagla. Beecher currently practices in Price at Eastern Utah Spine & Pain, and treats patients in Moab twice a month. He diagnoses and treats sports and spine-related injuries, as well as helping to restore maximum function lost through injury, illness, or disabling conditions.

    As a fellowship-trained physician and rehabilitation specialist, Beecher brings a function-focused, non-surgical approach to diagnosing and treating individuals with pain, she said. “Beecher is a nerve, muscle and bone expert who treats illnesses and injuries that affect how people move. He aims to help individuals control their pain while minimizing need for narcotics or surgical interventions,” said the press release from Jagla.

    Beecher accepts patients for non-surgical evaluation and treatment of spine, nerve and musculoskeletal pain; nerve conduction studies and EMG (to diagnose nerve-related conditions, including carpal tunnel syndrome), therapeutic and diagnostic interventional pain procedures, physical medicine and rehabilitation, osteopathic manipulation, epidural injections, and chronic pain.
