A study published in Clinical and Experimental Rheumatology found that whether pain was mild moderate or severe, medications did not effectively improve quality of life meaning levels of pain and immobility that interferes with basic activity of daily living (often referred to as ADL’s) and that more alternatives should be made available to patients.
The study used data from the 2016/2017 European National Health and Wellness Survey (NHWS), a cross-sectional survey that compiles a database of patient-reported health conditions for almost 2 million adults from Europe, the US, Russia, China, Japan, and Brazil. In this study, the researchers examined data from five European nations: UK, Germany, France, Spain, and Italy.
The physician’s at NYC Pain MD have understood this for many years and have developed programs of care, without medications, to address all sorts of Orthopedic pain syndromes for knees, hips, shoulder, necks and back ranging from mild and severe. Programs are aimed at feeling better, moving better and providing the best chance to avoid the meds and surgery.
