what are some non-pharmaceutical approaches to pain management?
Posted on 2014-12-15
Hello and Good Evening Everyone,
I have a friend who recently had surgery for a ventral hernia. Upon release from this outpatient procedure, she was prescribed 60 Percocet or Oxycodone pills. Within a 10 day period, she took all 60 pills which naturally created some concern on my behalf. Seeing there is a possibility of addiction to pain pills, I am needing any information about non-pharmaceutical approaches to pain management. In other words, I am more interested in learning about natural pain remedies to aid in her day to day discomfort. Being a very close friend who cares very much about her, I simply do not want her to go down a path of self-destruction by getting addicted to pain pills.
Any shared thoughts, insights, or directions to go with the concern stated within this post will be certainly welcomed and appreciated.
