About the Webinar:
Upwards of 22% of the population has a genetic risk for the disease of addiction; it is important that we seek ways to treat pain without opioid medication use. The vast majority who has either acute onset or chronic pain have numerous treatment techniques available without opioid medication. These may include an adjunctive medication, diagnostic/therapeutic nerve blocks, intrathecal delivery of opioid medications in a more controlled and lower dose fashion, spinal cord stimulation and the new burgeoning field of deep brain stimulation. Understanding when these different techniques can be employed is of the utmost importance to the addiction medicine and primary care physician.
