Legacy Health will work with you to help manage your pain while reducing your dependence on medication by providing:
Tools to build coping skills to manage stress and improve sleep
Physical therapy to improve daily function
Education and support groups
Interventional options for pain management (injections)
Pre-surgical pain management planning
In addition, we offer drug pumps and neuro-stimulators (spinal cord stimulators).
Unlike medications that circulate throughout your body in your bloodstream, drug delivery therapy releases medication directly into the fluid surrounding your spinal cord, which may lead to fewer or more tolerable drug side effects.
The dangers of opioids have become more apparent in recent years. At Legacy and around the world, chronic pain treatment is changing. We are moving toward safer, more comprehensive and longer-lasting treatments.
Suboxone At our Legacy Good Samaritan center, we may offer Suboxone as an option to help with an opioid taper for a limited number of patients with painful conditions. We do not offer Suboxone to persons who require it for treatment of opiate addiction. We do not offer Suboxone at our Salmon Creek center.
