"What Works for Pain" is an evidence-based list of non-drug pain relief options compiled and freely distributed by MMJ Labs, leaders in noninvasive pain relief.

ATLANTA, GA, USA, November 8, 2017 / -- As the industry leaders in noninvasive pain relief, MMJ Labs has created an evidence-based compilation of non-drug pain relief interventions. This comprehensive information sheet, titled “What Works for Pain”, is being provided free for pharmacies, hospitals, and patients to help combat opioid use, and to help pain patients who no longer desire or have access to opioids.

“We have been researching noninvasive pain management for ten years,” noted MMJ Labs founder and CEO Amy Baxter MD. “There are amazing people working on this issue, but government agencies and large corporations are by nature slow. People want options now, so we evaluated the data and created a resource patients can use.”

Currently, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is undertaking a comprehensive study to analyze noninvasive, nonpharmacological treatment for chronic pain. While methodical analysis is important, MMJ Labs feels the urgency of the crisis requires a faster solution to prevent addiction and give patients options. MMJ Labs is filling this void with action-oriented resources that people in pain can begin using immediately.

Mark Pew, Senior Vice President of PRIUM (a division of Genex), educates on the need for opioid reduction in workers’ compensation and notes patient education is often lacking. “This infographic will help individual patients understand they have options. Real management of pain, not the over-sedation that comes with too many opioids, can only be accomplished with active patient engagement in trying non-drug treatments.”

As a lecturer in procedural pain management, Baxter concurs. “I’ve been able to see what pain teams do all over the world. Many interventions have excellent research support, but clinicians do not have easy access to these studies. As a small company founded in NIH research, we believe we are in a unique position to be the change we need to see until formal government resources are available.”

MMJ Labs’ Buzzy® device has noninvasively blocked pain from over 31 million needle procedures. After 15 years practicing emergency medicine, Dr. Baxter shifted her focus to finding additional pain-relief applications for the patented, noninvasive platform. MMJ Labs anticipates their research-based compilation could be offered to everyone who gets a pain prescription, from trauma and surgical patients before and during follow-up, to pain clinics, rehabilitation, and worker’s compensation programs as an educational resource. A “What Works for Pain” research bibliography is available on request. MMJ Labs is offering to customize the resource with the logo of any healthcare organization at no cost.
