Different pain, different treatment.
Everyone deserves a plan to help them heal safely. Take charge of your healing by learning your options and talking with your doctor about what will work best for you.
Studies show that non-opioid options (like prescription-strength acetaminophen and ibuprofen, topical creams, physical therapy and acupuncture) are highly effective and safe for treating pain—even after serious injuries and surgeries.
Risks and downsides of opioid painkillers
- Physical dependence in just a few days
- Slower healing
- Cloudy thinking
- Disrupted sleep
- Nausea, constipation and other side effects
- Risk of re-injury
Many options for safe healing are covered by insurance companies and the Oregon Health Plan. Contact your health plan to learn what's available to you.
