It is no secret that narcotic painkillers are among the most commonly prescribed medications in America, with hydrocodone (Vicodin) being the most popular prescribed medication in the whole country. Over 15,000 prescription drug overdose fatalities occur annually in the US, with almost half a million emergency room visits on top of that for nonfatal overdoses.
It is because of this overdose potential that Arizona Pain Specialists created its comprehensive treatment options and opioid therapy statement. Along with opioid medication management as a therapy, Arizona pain management doctors offer interventional pain procedures, spinal decompression therapy, chiropractic treatment, physiotherapy, acupuncture, along with plenty of medications that are non-narcotic.
By offering cutting edge treatments such as radiofrequency ablation, spinal cord stimulation treatment, stem cell injections, platelet rich plasma treatments and more, Arizona Pain Specialists is able to minimize the amount of narcotics necessary for relief and often decrease the amount of opiates being prescribed due to the treatments working well.
The objective of the opioid therapy statement is to maximize benefit while decreasing risks of treatment. Arizona Pain strictly follows DEA recommendations and makes sure patients meet pathology criteria for opioids. In addition, lower risk medications and dosing are often tried first to put patient safety at the forefront and minimize the addiction potential.
