Can you treat pain without opioids?
There are alternatives available. Adjunct analgesic drugs such as ketamine, lidocaine and alpha 2 adrenoreceptor agonists alongside loco-regional anaesthesia techniques can all help reduce the amount of opioids required.
Even without a shortage, there are many positive effects from these techniques. If some of these protocols and techniques are something you would like to learn about contact us for further advice or training.
