DITCH THE PILLS, EASE THE PAIN: ACCESSIBLE PHYSICAL THERAPY IS HERE, SPONSORED BY BATON ROUGE PHYSICAL THERAPY

While prescription opioids are appropriate in certain cases like cancer treatment and end-of-life care, it’s no secret that people who begin using pills for pain management frequently become dependent.

After suffering more than 90 days with it, pain is considered “chronic,” and the risk for continued opioid use increases substantially. CDC guidelines note that nonopioid therapies are preferred for chronic pain unless the expected benefits for both pain and function are anticipated to outweigh risks to the patient.

Since opioids only mask the pain without treating its underlying cause, many people are choosing to forgo pain meds altogether in favor of more natural treatments. Thanks to Direct Access laws, patients now have direct access to physical therapy services. This means that there is no need for a physician’s referral or prescription to access the services of physical therapists. If people want PT, there shouldn’t be anything standing in their way of getting it. That’s what direct access does: opens the market and enables people to seek the services they want without restriction. Before you agree to a prescription for opioids, consult with a physical therapist to discuss options for nonopioid treatment.
