Patients who suffer from chronic pain conditions don’t get a ‘day off’ from their symptoms. Chronic pain touches every aspect of life. It impacts energy levels, mood, and mobility. Persistent pain symptoms can also make it difficult to remain employed. When chronic pain symptoms are not resolved, they can create distress and hardship for a patient.
The overuse of opioid medications to treat chronic pain has resulted in the World Health Organization called an “epidemic.” Many patients did not realize that over time, the human body builds a resistance to pain medications. When that happens, the conventional approach is to increase the strength of the drugs to provide relief.
Patients may find themselves suffering from side-effects from opioid medications that are worse than their health symptoms. Opioids can also increase nerve receptor sensitivity. When that happens, a patient feels more pain (not less) even with strong doses of prescription pain medications.
If you are ready to break that cycle of opioid misuse and explore medical cannabis as an alternative health option, we can help. Cannabis has been shown in many clinical studies to relieve debilitating chronic symptoms.
