Suboxone is One of the Newest Chronic Neck Pain, Back Pain, and Sciatic Nerve Pain Management and Addiction Treatment Wonder Drugs to Emerge in the Last Two or Three Years!
Chronic pain generally, and neck pain, back pain, and sciatica specifically, have been historically difficult to manage. Relief from chronic and/or acute pain with the use of narcotics is coming under increasing scrutiny as addiction becomes common and the efficacy of narcotics as a pain relief strategy is hotly debated.
The fact is, narcotics are not recommended as a neck pain, back pain, and sciatica relief strategy. In ever increasing numbers, pain management clinics are coming under fire for prescribing massive amounts of narcotics with little or no demonstrable reduction in the level of pain for their clients. Many pain management clinics have been closed down, either by litigation, the threat of litigation, or by state and federal government agencies. Still others have been forced to rethink and reshape their approach to pain management in order to survive.
Many pain management patients have become addicted to narcotics and have had to undergo difficult and protracted drug rehabilitation therapy once, twice, even three and four times, just to get “clean.” Pain management clinics have been sued by their former patients and many pain clinics refuse to take on new patients already taking narcotics for fear of taking on yet another problem patient.
Neck pain, back pain, and sciatica patients stuck in this trap, with very few options available to them, are often left on their own with nowhere to turn and no physician willing to help them. If additional surgery is required, many surgeons refuse to take on this sort of patient due to the high risk nature of the relationship.
The video below discusses the new drug Suboxone, one that may offer new hope to tens of thousands of pain management patients currently without hope and without a future. Suboxone has been nothing short of a miracle drug for many, contributing to neck pain, back pain, and sciatica relief, while at the same time allowing an individual to come off of the heavy narcotics in favor of a “kinder gentler” pain management strategy.
While still technically an opiod, Suboxone has features that make it appropriate for not only pain management, still being debated in the medical community, and as an addiction treatment, one for which the FDA regulations were considerably loosened in late 2006. Now, a generic Suboxone is available, making it more affordable for everyone. The loosening of regulations means more doctors can prescribe the drug which means many more will have access to it, thus offering hope to many people stuck in the limbo of pain management, still in pain but wishing to “come clean.”
This is a very anecdotal, unscientific post and before considering any kind of medical treatment, you must, of course, consult your physician!
However, compared to the alternatives: narcotics, addiction and all; methadone, with its own form of addiction and consequences; and, neck pain, back pain, and sciatica, which we have covered extensively; there can be little doubt that Suboxone at least offers a way up and out.
Given the proper management by your medical practitioner, Suboxone may reduce your neck pain, back pain, and sciatica long enough for your exercise program to begin demonstrating results, while at the same time reducing your dependence on narcotics, both physically and psychologically, and restoring control of your life to the one it belongs to…you!
Best wishes for a pain free life!
