Medical Treatments

What are the benefits?

Medical treatments aim to reduce pain, facilitate rehabilitation and promote quality of life, so you can get back into work and doing the things you love. While in some rare cases medical treatments can completely abolish your pain, in most cases they are pain reducers and they only work for as long as you use them. Some people prefer medical treatments as they are seen as less invasive than pain procedures. Although medical treatments can reduce your pain, they do not treat the underlying cause or pathology.

 

Are medical treatments safe?

Medical treatments can be safe and effective when used appropriately and under the guidance of your treating doctor. However, they can all be associated with potential side effects. When choosing a medical treatment with The Anodyne Centre we make a joint decision based on the balance of risks and benefits to ensure you are getting the most out of your treatment.

 

Opioid therapy

Pain management has come a long way from the days of prescribing opioids. Opioid based therapies are no longer the accepted standard of care in chronic pain management. With time opioids have been found to cause a number of physical and psychiatric problems not least of which is the possibility of worsening your pain. This is the opposite of what we are trying to achieve in assisting you with your pain. The Anodyne Centre will therefore not routinely prescribe opioid medications in the management of chronic pain nor will we routinely provide authority for other doctors to prescribe these. The Anodyne Centre will work with you in reducing your opioid requirements and get you to the point where your pain management is better without opioids.
