Where does chronic pain stem from? It can stem from conditions such as a pinched nerve, arthritis, a herniated disc, headaches or even muscle aches.
Recently in the news, the The American Society of Anesthesiologists issued a warning stating that patients need to be careful about taking pain medications for chronic conditions. Specifically: Opoid pain medications- which are highly addictive. We read about this with celebrities all the time, but what about real life?
There are a lot of side effects that can happen with using opoid pain medications for long term. Using these pain medications affects us the spinal nerve levels- making the drug more potent which leads to addiction for the pain medication.
Alternative treatment options should be researched and opted for when available. Other treatments may include medical management, chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy and psychological therapy, to other interventional therapies and other alternative medical treatments.
