Can Marijuana Stop Pain
This is one of the most common questions we get about medical marijuana prescriptions in NYC. Most people know that it can be used for glaucoma and to help cancer patients with their appetite, but it is less commonly known that it can treat chronic pain. Patients who have tried medical marijuana for chronic pain have found that it helps them to relax and ease the pain much more naturally than other treatment options. Rather than just masking the pain, marijuana allows your body to relax so the pain can be reduced naturally. In addition, the marijuana can help ‘distract’ your mind from the pain so it is not as severe.
Better than Pain Killers
When comparing the effects of marijuana with traditional pain killers it is difficult to say if one is better than the other. They work is different ways and you will get different results. There are benefits of each one and situations where one may be better than the other. This is why it is so important to work with doctors who are open to using the right drugs for pain relief, no matter what those drugs may be. Here at our pain clinics we are dedicated only to helping people get relief from the pain they are suffering from.
