Dangers of Pain Medication
We all have aches and pains, and unfortunately, some of us experience more of them than others. It seems to have become a norm in our society to pop an anti-inflammatory, or NSAID (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) – most of us know as Advil, or ibuprofen. Unfortunately, there are various side-effects that can come as a result of over-using anti-inflammatories, and many can leave lasting impacts. NSAIDS give short-term comfort from your pain, but are not a long-term solution. Many of us that take pain medication on a regular basis can find comfort and alleviation through a multitude of other solutions (chiropractic care, physical therapy, acupuncture,holistic health, etc.) if we take the time to explore our options and speak with a professional. Although they can provide temporary relief, they are not completely safe; there are risks that go along with taking NSAIDS on a regular basis. Tune in as Dr. Michael Milbauer explains the risks of pain medication, and steps you can take to finding a solution for your pain.
