Medical Therapy

Did you know you are probably amongst 70% of people? Why?

Did you know that 70% of the population won’t be taking over the counter or prescription medicines correctly?

Every day I see clients who have been to see their GP with various pain issues. Usually they have been prescribed anti-inflammatories; such as Ibuprofen, paracetamol or codeine phosphate. Despite being informed on a set dosage and course they are, in the majority, not following this advice. The usual comment I hear is that they “don’t like taking pills” or they “don’t want to mask the pain in case they make things worse” or they “do not want to become reliant on pills”. If people have collected the prescribed drugs they often only take some or one of the drugs issued. It is at this point I ask if the medicines are helping? Most say “No” and they only take a tablet when they feel their pain is bad enough.
And therein lies the problem. If you only take the medicines now and then or just one and not the other, you are usually wasting your time.
