Managing pain – at least in the United States – has become a medical specialty all of its own. Over 100 million Americans have chronic pain that they require a medical provider to help them manage, and the reasons vary widely, running the gamut from back injuries to pain from cancer treatments. It is no wonder that people are always looking for better ways to manage pain. Narcotics like Norco, Percocet and Dilaudid are effective against pain, but they are also addictive, hard on the system and can make you feel the effects much more acutely than kratom. For several reasons, many health experts are advocating kratom as a substitute for these narcotics for treating chronic pain.
Pain Management with Narcotics
Narcotics are extremely useful in the treatment of pain. Opioids block the pain signals from ever getting to the brain and can control a great deal of severe pain, but they do have the risk of addiction. In addition, since your body builds up a tolerance for opioids, you have to take more and more of them over time to get the same painkilling effect. But kratom does not have this problem. In fact, kratom is not considered addictive by many health professionals and your body does not develop a tolerance to it, which makes it ideal for pain management
Dangers of Using Kratom to Treat Pain
So, are there any dangers to using kratom to treat chronic pain? Unfortunately, there just isn’t enough research completed to form a conclusion. There has been some discussion of the dangers of kratom to your liver, and the fact that it might be addictive based upon the opioids that it mimics, but neither of these are completely factual and there is no evidence that kratom poses any danger to people with chronic pain conditions. In fact, people of the Pacific Islands have been using kava for thousands of years without any ill effects.
Side Effects of Kratom
There are a number of side effects that kratom users report, other than the main focus of the drug in this case, which is pain relief. However, most of these side effects are a benefit not a detriment. For example, kratom helps to improve your mood and gives you better mental focus. It also act as a stress reliever and helps you to relax. The only negative side effect that people have reported in any great abundance is a runny nose when coming off of kratom.
How to Use Kratom to Manage Chronic Pain
If you are a chronic pain sufferer and you are already seeing a doctor for your condition, you probably want to talk to your provider before you start using kratom to manage your pain, particularly if you are on narcotics currently. You should definitely not use both at the same time to ensure that there is no risk of liver damage, and if you are just starting kratom to treat your pain, start small and keep in mind that kratom is a stimulant at low doses, but it is a depressant at higher doses and taking too much is dangerous.
