I do enjoy keeping up to date with the latest in health news and research. To try keep up the latest developments I like to attend an annual pain symposium. At this pain symposium various medical specialities get together to talk about different concepts in pain diagnosis and pain management. It is primarily attended by GP’s, rheumatologists, neurologists and anaesthetist’s so the focus on how to control pain levels for back and neck pain patients is geared towards a pharmaceutical viewpoint.
Why would I attended a pharmaceutical discussion as a chiropractor? As I said I like to be up to date with what patients in pain are going to be prescribed by their doctor. I like to know the evidence and thinking behind different pain medication prescriptions so that I can help guide people if they aren’t finding the right medication or maybe on a dosage that is too weak or strong.
That is why today I want to let you know what kind of information I discovered at this recent pain symposium, in particular, regarding pain medication for a trapped nerve . Please carry on reading if you want to know which is the best nerve pain medication to take or not to take.
