Non-pharmacologic Therapies for Pain Relief are Most Effective

Non-pharmacologic therapies have proved to be effective in managing pain along with pain medication. Based on the condition of the client, the right therapies are used to ease the pain away.

Whether for elderly or young clients, non-pharmacologic therapies come with an array of advantages. And we at Fairview ADC strive to provide them for pain relief.

There are certain advantages associated with each treatment and only a professional therapist will be able to recommend one. Where one therapy works for one client, it might not have the same effects on another client.

Since each person responds to the therapies in a different way, it’s important to have a professional therapist on board. But why is pain control important?
