National Spine & Pain Centers Leads the Way on Fighting Opioid Abuse
NSPC pain specialists educate and advocate for responsible medication management by all health care providers, especially primary care physicians who are the front line of pain resolution for many patients. Insurers now frequently require patients who are prescribed controlled substances to be evaluated by Interventional Pain Specialists. NSPC also encourages insurers to recognize the value in addressing the source of pain instead of merely treating its symptoms, especially since minimally invasive interventional therapies are often a fraction of the cost of higher risk, invasive back surgeries. NSPC professionals are committed to resolving the nation’s opioid crisis and have authored numerous books and articles about the power of interventional therapies to reduce or eliminate the need for opiates.
