Why Opioid Treatment Doesn’t Work

Opioid Epidemic Alternative Treatment Options

No doubt you’ve heard by now that America is facing an opioid crisis of epidemic levels. Over 2 million Americans are thought to be addicted to prescription opioids, like oxycodone (OxyContin) and hydrocodone (Vicodin).

Opioids, prescription and otherwise, are now the leading cause of overdose deaths in the US, claiming 115 lives per day. With such incredible risks, you’d think that these highly addictive drugs would be prescribed in only the most severe instances. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.

Unexplained pain in the hands or feet? It may be Peripheral Neuropathy.

Peripheral Neuropathy can be Painful

You could be suffering from peripheral neuropathy. Around 42 million Americans are thought to suffer from this painful nerve condition, but only half are aware they have it.

Peripheral neuropathy is a complex condition that manifests in a number of ways. Depending on the source, it can cause symptoms like pain, burning, tingling, ‘pins and needles’, prickling, hot and cold sensations, and numbness. These symptoms tend to get worse over time, usually starting in the feet and legs and progressing to the hands and arms.

Breast Health and Musculoskeletal Conditions

Women have lots of reasons to question what is the right thing to do if they want to be proactive about breast health.   It is pretty hard not to have heard that Mammography, the once gold standard for breast cancer detection, has come under scrutiny for a myriad of reasons.   So many women have turned to other adjunct breast risk health assessments such as Medical Breast Thermology in order to do more.

The truth is that no imaging study, in and of itself, offers a holistic approach to breast health.  While Mammography, Breast MRI and Bresst Ultrasound offer structural assessments for abnormalities in breast tissue, and Medical Breast Thermography offers a complimentary physiologic assessment, both are for the most part still pretty focused on breast tissue in isolation.
