The Challenges of Musculoskeletal Pain Treatment
Health professionals are the trusted experts we turn to in our hour of need. The wellbeing and safety of millions of patients around the country and across the globe rest in trained hands and hearts like yours. Yet one of the biggest clinical challenges has remained a challenge for years: helping patients ease their musculoskeletal pain.
In 2016, a study by the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that a staggering 20.4% of US adults experience persistent pain, with 8% so severe that their diagnosis is designated high-impact chronic pain. The traditional mainstream approach has consisted of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDS), opiates, and stronger pain killers as a last resort.
As on-going pain requires long-term intervention, the plethora of serious side effects that accompany these medications is cause for significant concern. Plus, for certain patients, the act of regularly swallowing pills can be difficult or unpleasurable.
NSAIDS carry an increased risk of gastrointestinal ulcers and complications including hemorrhage, obstruction and perforation, in addition to kidney and liver damage, and increased bleeding due to platelet inhibition.
The opioid epidemic is an even greater worry. An estimated 130 people die in America every day due to an overdose of this class of drugs. Both illicit and prescribed versions are to blame. In fact, an article published in The Primary Care Companion for CNS Disorders noted that death from an opioid overdose is particularly common in those prescribed this medication to treat chronic pain. There is also a heightened risk of endocrine, gastrointestinal, immune, heart, lung, musculoskeletal, and nervous system injury and, of course, dependency.
Thus, ethical clinicians continue the search for safe, natural alternatives to ease the pain and long-term suffering experienced by their patients. This is where the cutting edge world of natural, topical ointments and creams offers much-needed respite.
Scientific evidence supports the use of counter-irritants like camphor, eucalyptus and menthol for pain relief. By stimulating nerve endings, the pain perception pathways are distracted with a cooling sensation. Clinically proven products are blending hemp and other natural oils to offer a more natural solution for OTC topicals. The result is safe, effective relief from minor pain.
