No pain is the same! So, effectively treating pain must also be unique to the individual experiencing it. The most effective medicinal treatment plans for pain will consider a person’s type of pain (whether it is acute or chronic), the reason for the pain, and the medical history of that individual. Chronic pain afflicts approximately 10-20% of the adult population, and approximately half of those suffering are inadequately treated. For those in any kind of pain, the good news is Myerlee Pharmacy can help your pain relief with the proper approach!
