What are some of the most common dangers of pain medications?
While medications can be very helpful in managing acute and chronic pain there are always side effects to be aware of. The top side effects to be aware of include:
- Liver Damage
- Stomach Damage
- Kidney Damage
- Addiction (depends on the medication)
- Masking a symptom which can cause further damage as people do not adjust their lifestyle since they feel like the pain/symptom is gone

Our approach is not to simply mask the problem, but get to the root of the cause and help your body to heal so that you can get back to optimal physical, mental and social well-being.
