It Starts with a Signal: Understanding Pain, Addiction, and Treatment

The number of opioid related deaths in the US is on the rise and health care providers often struggle finding a balance between prescribing guidelines and the individual needs of patients with acute and/or chronic pain. It's imperative that clinicians seeing patients with pain are knowledgeable about acute and chronic pain pathways and underlying mechanisms so that they may appropriately assess and manage pain. However, it can be difficult and daunting to evaluate patients with chronic pai...

Opioid Use Disorder in Special Populations: Making Recovery a Goal

The opioid epidemic is ravaging many parts of the United States, resulting in drug overdose deaths emerging as the leading cause of injury death. The 2015 statistics from Health and Human Services on human and economic costs were staggering, reporting that 12.5 million people misused prescription opioids that year, resulting in $78.5 billion in economic costs. Yet the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAA)'s National Epidemiological Survey on Alcohol Abuse and Related Condit...

Fatal Attraction: Why are Opioids so Addicting?

Early in the opioid crisis, physicians were the principle source of opioid use and abuse due to overprescribing, often leading to patients storing leftover prescriptions at home and friends or family members finding and using these leftovers. Unfortunately, simply restricting opioid prescriptions is not an effective strategy in a culture that has wildly available and accessible drugs of abuse available. Opioids are the most addicting drugs of abuse; they interact with the brain's pleasure ...

New Perspectives and Approaches from Orthopedic Surgeons for the Management of Acute Pain

To meet the pain needs of patients and minimize opioid prescribing, the Orthopedic Trauma Association has released new acute pain guidelines that emphasize precise prescribing within multimodal treatment plans that integrate non-opioid medications, cognitive strategies, and physical strategies such as immobilization, ice, elevation, and physical therapy. Not meant to be a one-size-fits-all standard of treatment, physicians should use the guidelines as a starting point when practicing the a...

Shifting Perspectives on Pain Management in Oral Surgery

In a survey of 1,015,116 opioid naïve patients undergoing surgery, total duration of opioid use was the strongest predictor of misuse and the greatest risk for individuals in the 15-24 age group. Young people aged 15-24 often get their first exposure to opioids with dental surgery. In a survey of randomly selected oral surgeons conducted by Dr. Abubaker and colleagues, the average number of opioid tablets prescribed was 20, with 22% prescribing more than 20 tablets, and 11% prescribing more t...

The Role that Gender Plays in Pain Perception, Treatment, and Addiction

Studies have shown that gender plays an important role in pain, pain perception, and opioid use. Women are more likely to gain access to opioids through their medical treatment. Not only are women prescribed opioids more often than men (53% vs. 46%), but this number increases with age. Often there is a lack of attention to underlying causes of opioid use disorder (OUD), particularly past sexual or emotional trauma, which can put women at a significantly higher risk for addiction and relapse. G...

Providing the Right Expectations: Understanding the Pathophysiology of Pain

It can be difficult and daunting to evaluate patients with chronic pain, as the nervous system is complex and knowing which type of pain the patient is experiencing – neuropathic, nociceptive, or nociplastic – is the best guide for where clinicians should focus their treatment choices; the fact that there is no clinical way to diagnose sensitization only adds to the difficulty. It’s important for clinicians to think of what the actual mechanisms of a medication are and how to use them in...
