Think Health Science: Advances In Pain Management
When the rock legend Prince died earlier this year, it was revealed that the performer suffered from opioid addiction. Injuries in the 1980s perhaps led to the prescription drug addiction that would end his life. But there are alternative ways to manage chronic pain, and at the next Think Health Science on Thursday, June 9, you'll learn about some of these treatment methods, as well as get a multifaceted look at the use of opiates to treat pain.
