No Pain, More Gain
Ben Franklin is believed to have coined the phrase, “There are no gains without pains.”
In workers’ comp, we see it a little differently. If you want gains, minimize the pain.
I’m linking to a couple of provocative articles that recently ran in The Courier Journal. The first by Sarah Crawford is headlined What’s the Answer for Treating Chronic Pain? The second one by Kristi L. Nelson is titled How Do Opioids Trick the Brain? These are fairly easy reads and reinforce the messages we have been delivering for years:
- Opioids are NOT the answer for treating chronic pain;
- Alternative non-pharmacological treatments, cognitive behavioral therapy, and unique medication- assisted protocols are effective options.
At OMCA, we have opioid-dependent claimants who have successfully treated through our functional restoration program administered by Restart-FX. There ARE protocols to do better.
Call us. We can do better.
