“Pain Relief NOW!”
“New Pain Breakthrough!”
“Miracle Solution for Pain!”
Have you ever tried to function while in chronic, debilitating pain? Perhaps you suffer from migraine headaches that come on without warning? Or, you are trying to manage the overwhelming side effects of cancer treatment.
We see and read claims like these everywhere because debilitating pain is real and, at one time or another, everyone of us seems to fall victim. Of course, some among us are in constant, unrelenting pain.
According to the National Institutes for Health (NIH), chronic pain affects more people than cancer, heart disease and diabetes combined. Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability in the United States.
Some people turn to addictive pain pills. However, the only thing in the news more than pain is opioid abuse! There is another way to safely and effectively manage your pain.
Medical marijuana is an increasingly popular alternative to what was considered the standard in pain-relieving medications — opioids such as Percaset, Vicodin and Oxycontin.
Medical cannabis has been proven to ease certain types of chronic pain, including pain resulting from nerve damage and inflammation, without the debilitating addiction and side effects that are the result of prolonged opioid use. There are many conditions that qualify for a medical marijuana prescription in New York.
In fact, an increasing number of studies are demonstrating that cannabis is an effective pain treatment with fewer side effects than many alternatives. Josh Kaplan, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of Behavioral Neuroscience at Western Washington University and runs a laboratory that researches cannabis’ developmental and therapeutic effects.
So yes, there is real scientific data to back up the claims.
However, since each type of pain has a different origin in the body, each condition has an optimal treatment strategy. It’s important to consult with a medical doctor who can treat you appropriately with medical marijuana.
