As the national opioid epidemic conversation continues in healthcare, information concerning safer pain management alternatives surface. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention has encouraged non-drug approaches, including Physical Therapy (PT). Net Health interviewed PTs and their real patients about how hands-on pain management helps support a better quality of life and a healthier population. We connected with clients and partners Greg Todd and Mike Anastasas of Renewal Rehabilitation in Tampa, FL to sit with 10 of their patients that chose PT over opioids. The stories they shared are inspiring and authentic.
