Chronic non-cancer pain affects millions of people nationwide, making it a vital topic of ongoing conversation among health care professionals, as well as individuals who suffer from the condition. It is a topic at the core of our program at Las Vegas Recovery Center, where we specialize in helping people manage chronic pain without relying on opioids. In a recent MedPage Today online discussion, several physicians offered opinions about the American Academy of Neurology’s position, which claims a lack of solid evidence to support the effectiveness of opioids in treating chronic non-cancer pain. Although many patients believe that opioid treatment is the only solution to their chronic pain conditions. our program, under the direction of Dr. Mel Pohl, has established reliable, highly successful non-opioid treatment for chronic pain. “In my work as medical director of LVRC, I have seen hundreds of patients who have been on opioids for years, usually high doses, whose lives have deteriorated, rather than improved,” said Pohl. “If opioids are ever to be considered for chronic pain treatment, they ought to be utilized on a trial basis with close attention to evidence of improvement of function. If such evidence is not apparent and sustained, then the opioids are not the best course for these patients, and this is made clear by this article.”
