Non-Opioid Chronic Pain Relief

Treat pain at its source while reducing reliance on medication

The term “chronic pain” is generally used to describe pain that lasts more than three to six months, or beyond the point of tissue healing. It is believed that pain can establish a pathway in the nervous system. In other words, the nervous system may be sending a pain signal even though the original tissue damage has healed. The nervous system misfires and creates the pain. In such cases, the pain is the disease rather than a symptom of an injury. Pain management depends on the symptoms, and how much pain you’re in.
