Pain Management Q & A

What is pain management?

Chronic pain that lasts for more than six months is often the result of inflammation in the joints and muscles. Pain management is a medical specialty that focuses on relieving chronic pain and restoring optimal function to the body. 

Dr. Hopkins knows how quickly chronic pain can diminish your quality of life. This led him to create a medication-free pain relief treatment called Reliviance® cannabidiol (CBD). 

Reliviance products come in two different forms, oral drops and a topical cream. Unlike prescription narcotics, CBD products are non-habit-forming with minimal side effects.

Why might I need pain management?

Dr. Hopkins may recommend pain management with Reliviance CBD products if you have:

Arthritis

Arthritis is an inflammatory condition that affects the joints. There are more than 100 types of arthritis, but the two most common are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. 

Osteoarthritis affects the protective cartilage around your joints. As the cartilage breaks down, connecting bones can rub together, causing pain and limiting your mobility. Rheumatoid arthritis inflames the lining inside your joints. This autoimmune disease commonly affects the small joints in your hands, wrists, feet, and ankles.

Tendonitis

Tendons, which connect muscle to bone, can become inflamed from repetitive strain and overuse. Whether you have Achilles tendonitis in your heel or rotator cuff damage in your shoulder, CBD products may help reduce inflammation to relieve your pain.

Back and neck pain

Back and neck pain can stem from muscle tension, herniated discs in the spine, or even degenerative joints. Inflammation amplifies this pain, which may prevent you from completing rehabilitative exercises or stretches. By reducing inflammation, CBD may alleviate your pain and help you complete physical therapy.

What are the benefits of pain management?

Pain management with Dr. Hopkins may teach you how to manage your pain effectively and promote better well-being. 

As a part of your treatment, Dr. Hopkins may recommend Reliviance CBD products as oral drops or a topical cream. Combining both products may help minimize inflammation inside and out for long-lasting pain relief. 

After a comprehensive evaluation that includes a physical exam, medical history review, and blood work, Dr. Hopkins can determine the best pain management treatment plan.
