How to Stop Relying on Prescription Pain Medication

While there are undoubtedly plenty of great doctors in your area, there are a few characteristics that all doctors share. And the tendency to over prescribe pain medication is one of those tendencies. If you get into an accident, and you injured part of your body, you may be experiencing long-term pain. If a doctor is not able to fix the root issue causing you pain, they may prescribe pain medication. Sometimes, for an extended period. There is nothing wrong with taking pain medication in the days and weeks after an injury or accident. But if you are taking pills to get through the day six months later, something has not gone as it should.

The Dangers of Pain Medication

Pain medication is seriously addictive. Misuse and abuse of pain medications can be extremely dangerous. Addiction is just one serious danger of opioid abuse. It is not good for your body’s overall health, and becomes less effective over time. Depending on it for more than a week or two is a bad idea, especially if this has been going on for months. We suggest an alternate form of treatment instead, like visiting a chiropractor.
