Medical Cannabis for Chronic Pain Relief
Salson Clinics provides health evaluations for patients who want to get a Utah medical marijuana card. Before you get approved by the Utah Medical Cannabis Program, you must receive a medical evaluation.
Some patients choose to use medical cannabis for a short time to help manage pain symptoms. For example, after a major orthopedic surgery like a knee replacement. For other patients with chronic pain, daily use may be preferred along with other doctor recommended therapies. The goal is to help the patient find relief so that pain is not a daily obstacle for them. Permanent residents of Utah over the age of 21 can apply for access to medical cannabis treatments. They must first meet one or more diagnoses on the list of qualifying health conditions.
Get A Utah Medical Marijuana Card Before January 2021
Patients who have already received a letter of recommendation from a physician will have until December 31, 2020, to continue to use it to purchase medical cannabis. After January 1, 2021, all participants in the Utah Medical Cannabis Program will be required to register and receive a patient card. Don't wait until January. Schedule your health check. The letter will be required to register on the Utah Medical Cannabis Program website in January 2021.
Helping Patients in Utah Transition Away from Opioid Medications
We know that no one likes to be in pain. When opioid medications were chosen for long-term pain relief, the long-term side-effects were not known. If you experience increasing pain over time, opioids can actually increase pain symptoms. That's because the body develops a resistance, they become less effective (and at higher doses). When the dose has increased the risk of harmful side-effects can go up.
Patients need to know that there are many natural and holistic pain management options for them to try. Especially when opioid and prescription pain medications were not a good choice for them. Patients diagnosed with severe chronic pain or disease symptoms explore the use of medical marijuana. Can medical cannabis be an effective way to step-down from opioid medications? Some patients experience withdrawal symptoms after they stop using opioids. Dealing with the pain of your condition and withdrawal from opioids at the same time can be hard.
Did you know that opioids attach to—and can damage—the receptors in the brain? The potential for addiction after regular use is high. Some patients want to stop using opioid medications, but they are worried about the withdrawal symptoms. Or concerned about being judged for their reliance on opioid or NSAID medications.
Our job and mission are to help patients explore better options for pain management. We have in-house treatment programs and care for patients who want to transition away from prescription pain medications. We provide support and offer counseling services along with addiction therapies.
