A Shift In Thinking

We need to rethink the way acute pain is managed. We tend to think of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory or acetaminophen whether used alone or in combination (non-opiate multimodal anaglesic therapy) as “alternatives” to opiates…when in fact we should actually consider the converse…that opiates are the alternative to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents – alone or in combination.

We don’t need to look far beyond our own backyards. The wisdom tooth pain model is a valid and time tested. NSAIDs are the winner.
