Treatment

 

Pain relief treatment plans may include one or more of:

  • First-line, anti-inflammatory medicines, called ‘NSAIDs’.
  • Second-line medicines may be used to help in the treatment of chronic pain. These work by
    either reducing the tendency of the nervous system to amplify pain, or working with the body
    to enhance its own pain regulating mechanisms. They are often used in combinations to enhance

    their effect.
  • Acupuncture treatment may help pain management. It reduces the production of inflammatory
    chemicals, increases the body’s endorphin production and can treat painful ‘knots’ in strained muscles.
