DONT STAY WITH PAINS

Don’t stay with pains There’s no question about it, as we get older, our chances of suffering a painful medical condition go up. Some studies indicate that 50 percent of older adults live with chronic pain. The rate is even higher for those living in nursing homes. 

But we don’t have to just accept pain as part of our lives. In fact, we shouldn’t. Pain comes with its own damaging side effects. It makes it harder to stay active and get a good night’s sleep and increases the risk of depression. So it’s important to take pain seriously and treat it.

Older residents of the Phoenix metro area are fortunate that there are more options than ever today for treating pain—and they’re available right here in the Valley.

When you think of pain treatment, your first thought is probably medication. And it’s true, medication is an important component of pain treatment for most people. 

But all medications—even over-the-counter ones—can have side effects, and those become even more problematic as we age. The kidneys, liver, and gastrointestinal tract don’t work as efficiently as we get older, so drugs may be absorbed more slowly and processed more slowly. On top of that, we’re more likely to suffer from several medical problems as we age, and be taking multiple medications. All of those medications can have side effects and interact with one another.
