Paid Research Study Offers Non-Narcotic Treatment for Pain

[fa icon="calendar"] May 3, 2017 / by Kathryn Cote

post surgical pain management.jpgNarcotics are the “big guns” on the front line of pain relief, and their use has eased the suffering of millions who live with pain resulting from injury and the aftermath of surgical procedures. However, Narcotics have a dark side in the form of some fairly serious side effects. Constipation, nausea, dizziness, headache and fatigue take a toll on quality of life. More serious, though, is the potential for narcotic addiction.

Opioid-based narcotics work directly on pain receptors within the central nervous system, decreasing the pain messages sent to the brain and so reducing the experience of pain. However, the body can quickly adapt to the presence of opioids, and some find the euphoria they produce enjoyable. As a result, these narcotics are known to be highly addictive.

Post-Operative Pain Device Hopes to Reduce The Need For Narcotics

Doctors and researchers continue to search for effective, non-addictive pain control options, and Physicians Research Group (PRG) is at the forefront of that search. In conjunction with a leading medical device company, PRG is conducting paid clinical trials in Arizona to investigate the effectiveness of a potential pain control device in easing both the immediate and long-term pain relief after surgery 

The information about pain relief gathered by researchers in this clinical research trial  will help shape the future of post-surgical pain control. You could help by participating in this paid research study and, through the process, you may find relief from your post-surgery pain.
