Medication Management Therapy in Little Rock, AR
Neck and back pain is often treated with a variety of over-the-counter or prescribed medications depending on the severity of your pain. Some spine disorders, however, are so painful that they require a class of potentially addictive drugs that produce morphine-like effects. These are known as opioids, and they include oxycodone (Oxycontin), hydrocodone (Vicodin) and codeine, among others. To ensure your safety, all pain-relieving medication should be medically supervised by a qualified physician.
