Mind Body Therapies for Pain Management

Mind Body Therapies for Pain Management

During these last couple of years, we have seen an unprecedented increase in the awareness of the ill effects of overuse and abuse of opioids with an ever-increasing emphasis on doctors to prescribe these powerful drugs much more carefully and judiciously. But, there also has been a fear that this push will lead to undertreatment of pain and unnecessary suffering of pain patients. The good news is that many research studies have shown that non-opioid therapies are often as effective, if not more so, than opioids in treatment of chronic pain. This fact was further highlighted by a recent scientific and systematic analysis of the effectiveness of Mond Body Therapies for pain management.
