Pain Management Therapy
Catonsville and Owings Mills Pain Management Therapy
Many people who suffer from chronic, debilitating pain do not realize that physical therapy is one of the safest, most effect alternatives to opioids. In fact, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention recommends physical therapy for management of most non-cancer based pain. Opioids and other pain medications simply mask the pain. Physical therapy works to resolve the source of the pain.
According to the CDC, physical therapy can be used in place of opioid medications when:
- Risk of opioid addiction is high
- Pain is from lower back, osteoarthritis or fibromyalgia
- Patient wants to do more than mask their pain
- Patient/Doctor want to minimize the dosage of opioids used (combine PT with opioids)
- Pain is chronic (lasts more than 90 days)
