Top 5 Things NOT to do When You Have Pain from Fort Myers Chiropractic Studio's blog

When it comes to pain, often the intensity or severity of the pain is not a good indicator of how bad the problem actually is.  Think about it, papercuts can hurt pretty bad, but in the grand scheme of things, those cuts are insignificant.  When people hurt they are looking desperately for the cause and solution of their pain. The problem is sometimes the answer is so simple that it is overlooked, and sometimes the “cure” is worse than the “disease”.

Here are the top 5 things NOT to do when you have back pain.

    1. Don’t prescribe opioid analgesics as first-line therapy to treat chronic noncancer pain.

    2. Don’t prescribe opioid analgesics as long-term therapy to treat chronic noncancer pain until the risks are considered and discussed with the patient.

    3. Avoid imaging tests, such as MRI, computed tomography, or radiography, for acute low back pain without specific indications.

    4. Don’t use intravenous sedation, such as propofol, midazolam, or ultra-short-acting opioid infusions for diagnostic and therapeutic nerve blocks, or joint injections, as a default practice.

    5. Avoid irreversible interventions for noncancer pain, such as peripheral chemical neurolytic blocks or peripheral radiofrequency ablation.
