Medical Treatments

What are the benefits?

Medical treatments should be viewed as pain reducers that aim to facilitate your patient’s functionality and quality of life. In some cases they can be used to facilitate a reduction in (and sometime cessation of) any existing opioid therapy. Some patients prefer medical treatments as they are seen as less invasive than pain procedures.

Are pain based treatments safe?

Like all medical treatments they can be associated with potential side effects that we discuss with your patient(s). When choosing a medical treatment with The Anodyne Centre we make a joint decision based on the balance of risks and benefits. We ensure your patient(s) is getting the most out of their treatment with clearly defined treatment goals.

Opioid therapy

Pain management has come a long way from the days of prescribing opioids. Opioids are no longer the accepted standard of care in chronic pain management. Opioids have been found to cause a number of physical and psychiatric problems not least of which is the possibility of Opioid Induced Hyperalgesia. This is the opposite of what we are trying to achieve in managing your patients’ pain. The Anodyne Centre will therefore not routinely prescribe opioid medications in the management of chronic pain nor will we routinely provide authority to prescribe these. The Anodyne Centre will work with your patient in reducing their opioid requirements and get them to the point of improved analgesia with less opioids.
