The Power of Sound Healing: Gong Meditation

Integrative Pain Management: Free From Pain, Free From Dependency

By Christopher Reilly, L.AC

Why not Pop a Pill?  It’s Easy…right?

A recent study showed that patients over 60 who were given opiate painkillers after minor surgeries considered to be “low pain,” were 44% more likely to still be using the painkillers a year later when compared to patients who were not prescribed opiates right away.  There was also a strong trend in the opiate group to graduate from a drug like codeine, to stronger opiates like oxycodone within a year.  {Asim Alam, MD, et. al.  “Long-term Analgesic Use After Low-Risk Surgery: A Retrospective Cohort Study.” Arch Intern Med. 2012;172(5):425-430.}
