The goal of pain management is to achieve optimal comfort, function, and quality of life with minimal side effects from analgesic therapy. In some cases, prescription management, or Pharmacological Intervention, will be utilized along with our other natural therapies and treatments.
NSAIDs are effect analgesics, but their side effect potential requires cautious use. Here at Unity Spine & Joint, we are going to recommend that you take the lowest dose available to deal with pain. Opioids are effective in the short-term, but there has been overwhelming evidence against any long-term benefits.
When our physicians choose Pharmacological Intervention, they are also going to compliment natural treatment techniques with the medication. The synergies that can be created between this combination can prove to be extremely effective to most patients. If you are interested in hearing more about our natural healing techniques along with Pharmacological Intervention, give us a call and book a consultation today!
