Opioid, the Pain Management's mistake

Dr. Jose Mena

The opioid crisis is the rapid increase in the use of prescription and non-prescription opioid drugs as a solution to manage pain.

José Mena, Interventional Spine Specialist at Baptist Health South Florida, says opioids are not intended into treating the source of the pain, they are just masking the pain.

Doctors should be proactive in dealing with the symptoms where the pain is coming out from to prevent patients from escalating the use of this type of narcotics.
