Oral Meds vs Topicals or Injectables for Muscle/Skeletal & Neuromuscular Conditions

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Chronic muscular, skeletal and neurologic problems are due to chronic inflammatory, degenerative and mechanical disorders. Treatment is meant to lessen the pain and disability. Much treatment is medication based. Medications may be given orally, topically, by injections or otherwise. This talk will provide an overview of such conditions and their non-surgical treatments with medications. Pros and cons of different groups of medications and their delivery methods will be discussed. Newer non-opioid as well as biologic drugs are all meant to slow down the disease process and reduce suffering from pain. Presented by Dr. M. Michael Massumi, Physical Medicine, Rehabilitation & Pain Management.
