Pros and Cons of Pain Clinics

Pain clinics can be good and bad. Clearly, if you are suffering from chronic pain and you go to the right place to have the pain handled, they can make a big difference. They can make life a lot better for you. However, sometimes people go to pain clinics for the medication and before they know it, they get, more or less, hooked on the medications that were given with the best intentions. I see a lot of patients like that. They come into the family practice office and what they need is pain medicine. You have to get off those medicines. They are a crutch but they’re not something that should be used long-term.

We always appreciate your thoughts.
