Pain Management Q & A

Integrative Physicians

What is pain management?

Pain management involves the evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of various types of pain ranging from mild to severe and acute to chronic. The goal of pain management is to minimize or eliminate the severity of your pain, ultimately improving your quality of life. There are many ways medical professionals can help you manage your pain, and medical marijuana is one of the safest and most effective.

How can medical marijuana help with pain management?

Research has found that using medical marijuana to manage and treat pain can be effective and often significantly safer than other options available today. Pain management is one of the primary uses when doctors prescribe medical marijuana.

Medical marijuana works as a pain management treatment because of chemical compounds are known as cannabinoids, which are secreted by cannabis flowers. Cannabinoids work by mimicking specific compounds in your body that mediate communication between your cells, providing a solution to painful deficiencies within your body.

What are the benefits of using medical marijuana for pain management?

Aside from relieving your pain, medical marijuana can provide a number of other benefits, including:

  • The reduction or elimination of the use of potentially addictive medications
  • The reduction or elimination of side effects, such as nausea and stomach ulcers, that you might be experiencing from other medications
  • The reduction or elimination of depression, anxiety, and insomnia that are associated with pain
  • Affordability, especially when compared with other pain management options
  • Peace of mind in knowing that you’re treating your pain with a natural remedy

If you’re experiencing debilitating pain that is affecting your quality of life, pain management through the use of medical marijuana could be right for you.
