“I don’t think there was much surprise, just extremely pleased to have the positive results,” said Dr. Mark Wiederhold, a renowned pain management expert. “To have this type of trial, it’s all pretty remarkable.”
How long ago was it that the word ‘opioid’ became a household word? Many of us probably can’t really remember when, but one thing is for certain, our world has changed because of opioids, and clearly not for the better.
It’s probably hard to come up with a more devastating modern-day addiction to the painkiller that’s wrecked lives, torn apart families and caused the untimely deaths of so many.
There is a direct line that can be drawn between an active life and a healthy life, so it’s not surprising that a growing segment of our population is trending toward trying some sort of physical activity to produce positive results.
But what if those results sometimes have a negative after-effect? Like pain. Many times, it’s the New Normal following a workout - the annoying, nagging soreness you can experience after a simple physical activity like cycling or running or yoga or cross-training or golf even a low-impact jog along the beach.
