Pharmacological Treatments

Pain medications are often used by your doctors to help reduce chronic pain. Medications work best when combined with other types of treatment such as nerve blocks and physical therapy to increase your level of physical activity.

Ongoing review of your pain medications is important to maximise pain relief and minimise side effects. Your pain specialist will assess your medications and work with you to get the doses and combinations correct. We also work with you and guide you in managing your own pain medications so you can adjust them depending on your needs.

It is preferable to take two or more pain medications in low doses, rather than just one pain medication in a big dose. This is because various pain medications work differently in the body but all can cause serious side effects. Taking a few medications at lower doses reduces side effects and allows them to work on different parts of the pain in combination to significantly reduce pain.
