Medical Doctors Addressing the Opioid Epidemic with Laser Therapy
Is your practice evaluating new pain management patient treatment options to reduce distribution of opioids?
The management of acute and chronic pain and inflammation is one of the most commonly encountered in medical practice. Current treatment modalities, most often utilize pharmaceuticals with the potential for side effects, dependence and abuse. Most practitioners and hospitals, as well as patients continue to seek safer alternatives. Opioid based modalities for pain control have increased rapidly and now pose a true public health concern. Healthcare providers must become familiar with alternative treatments for chronic pain patients. Many hospitals have added patient pain management treatment choices and implementing programs to reduce opioid distribution.
