Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists Utilizing Cannabidiol (CBD) for Pain Management
For many patients who suffer from pain – whether from injuries, inflammation, overuse, arthritis, or neurological conditions – it can be frustrating to try one therapy or medication after another, only to have the pain persist or even get worse. Proper care from highly trained specialists can help mitigate pain, but it is sometimes not enough or does not make a significant difference fast enough. Breakthroughs in the scientific understanding of cannabidiol (CBD) has allowed treatment teams and physicians to integrate CBD into pain management regimens.
CBD has been shown to be a natural and safe way to treat pain and inflammation. Because it works on different pathways than most traditional pain medications, patients often experience relief even after other options have failed. And, with its known benefits for anxiety reduction and relaxation, many find it to be a better choice for their pain management needs.
At Bucks County Orthopedic Specialists, we are proud to be able to offer CBD pain management therapies to those within our community. Ninad Sthalekar, M.D. is leading our team when it comes to utilizing CBD in a way that safely and effectively reduces our patients’ pain. He is board certified in pain medicine and physical medicine and rehabilitation, and he also holds membership to the American Society of Interventional Pain Physicians, International Spine Intervention Society and the Psychiatric Association of Spine, Sports and Occupational Rehabilitation (PASSOR).
“Our patients have experienced tremendous benefit from CBD, helping to resolve their persistent pain issues even after most other options have failed,” notes Dr. Sthalekar. “We’ve seen such huge benefits that we’ve made the process as easy and affordable as possible so that we can help the most patients possible.”
How CBD Can Help with Your Pain
CBD is growing in popularity among medical communities for its antipsychotic, anti-inflammatory, and pain-reducing properties that come with little to no side effects. For the longest time, it was held in an unfair light as it is found in marijuana, cannabis, and hemp. However, the chemical that makes people feel “high” when using these substances is tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), not cannabidiol.
Under Dr. Sthalekar’s guidance, we may recommend a patient use CBD in one of the following forms:
- Tinctures and oils
- Creams or topical gels
- Medically-approved vaporized form
