What is non-opioid pain management?
Non-opioid pain management is, in many ways, exactly what it sounds like. This approach works to alleviate pain without the use of opioids. While much research has been conducted on pain, there is also much that remains a mystery. Acute pain is a normal sensation that is triggered in the nervous system to alert you to a possible injury, while chronic pain can persist weeks, months, and even years after treatment has been received or even in the absence of injury. Non-opioid pain management employs a variety of strategies to help alleviate pain without the use of opioids, allowing you to live your healthiest life.
What types of pain can non-opioid pain management help with?
There is a wide variety of types of pain, and non-opioid pain management can help with many different kinds. Some of the most common chronic pains that we treat here at AIM for Wellbeing are headaches, lower back pain, and arthritis pain. Non-opioid pain management can also help with both neurogenic pain, which results from damage to nerves or the nervous system, as well as psychogenic pain, which is not directly linked to any disease or injury. There are many different types of pain, and we are here to help you alleviate any types that you might be experiencing. If you deal with pounding, jabbing, throbbing, burning, piercing, stinging, or other unpleasant sensations, see if our non-opioid pain management might be a good option for you.
What are the benefits of non-opioid pain management?
One of the top benefits of non-opioid pain management is the absence of addictive properties found within opioids. While opioids are extremely effective pain medications, they also have highly addictive properties, which can make stopping the medications difficult, as well as leading to a variety of other issues. By targeting your pain through non-opioid strategies, we can help to alleviate your pain without introducing new issues.
