Opioids or Physical Therapy?



Physcial therapy is the best alternative to surgery and prescription drugs. Here are five reasons why:


PAIN

  • With physical therapy pain is treated through individualized, hands-on care, movement, exercises, patient education and comprehensive support.

  • With opioid use pain is only masked, NOT treated.


SIDE EFFECTS

  • Benefits of pt include improved mobility, independence, and decreased pain.

  • Side effects of opioid use may include overdose, depression, addiction and withdrawal symptoms.


LONG-TERM

  • Studies show quality evidence supporting the use of physical therapy for long-term pain management.

  • Studies for long term pain management when using opioids are inconclusive.


ENERGY

  • Its science that exercise and physical therapy give you increased energy and alertness.

  • When using opioids additional drugs are often prescribed such as muscle relaxants and anti-anxiety medications which reduce energy and alertness.


COST

  • Total cost of ongoing pain-related health care is reduced.

  • costs rise every year for pain-related diagnostics, drugs and surgery.
