Chronic Pain Treatments: The Pros and Cons


This is the leading treatment of chronic pain. People often resolve to take pills to dull their aches and pains as the remedy is advertised as a one-and-done process. However, it comes with its own set of side effects and long-term issues. 

Pain Pills and the American Opioid Crisis  

Currently the United States has been fighting against the opioid epidemic since the 1990s. This refers to the number of deaths and hospitalizations from the use of opioids. Opioids are ‘morphine-type’ medications that are used to treat moderate or severe pain.

Opioids include prescription pain relievers, illicit drugs, and synthetic opioids. Such as: codeine, dihydrocodeine, tramadol, morphine, fentanyl, oxycodone, buprenorphine and diamorphine, and many more. All of these drugs are often times described as gateway drugs that prompt people to start using more intense narcotics such as heroin or crack cocaine.  

Pills may seem to be the easiest solution to curing pain but there are truly risks. Even if you are prescribed a pain reliever by a doctor there still is chance of addiction, misuse, or even overdose.  


The second most commonly used remedy to combat chronic pain is topical analgesic creams. While this solution has minimal risks compared to pills as it is administered topically, it can still present lifestyle and patient compliance issues when using long term.  

  • There is little to no risk of addiction or internal health risks but many do not feel intense relief or any relief at all. It is reported that they only provide modest benefits
  • Many feel creams are too much effort  
  • They are sticky or have an odor  
  • Some places are hard to reach  
  • They get in all the wrong places
