Guidance and instruction in the use of the wide range of pharmacological options available, including benefits, expectations, adverse effects, and costs with you. Importantly we will work with your GP with the use of these.
These include, but are not limited to:
Opiates, and opiate-substitution therapy
Antidepressants – particularly for those that act chiefly on pain such as amitriptyline, nortriptyline, duloxetine
Pain-sensitisation medications – such as ketamine,
‘Anticonvulsants’ that act chiefly on pain – such as gabapentin, pregabalin, carbamazepine
Proprietary specialised customised nerve creams
Inpatient admissions for varying durations of pain-modifying infusions of ketamine, lidocaine, etc.
Cannabinoids, (warning: not strongly recommended for pain due to poor results in scientific studies, and cost $250-$400 per month)
We ALWAYS recommend enhancing any reduction of pain sensation that may be achieved by combining them with our specialised, customised physical and psychological therapies further enhanced by soft-tissue and acupuncture therapies.
