CIRP DRUG FREE PAIN SERVICE
CIRP is now offering to members of the BCBTs and CLRA a drug free pain service. Within the context of the opioid epidemic and the disproportionate numbers of construction workers dying in the epidemic the need for an alternative has never been greater. Pain amongst constructions workers is well documented.
This new Pain Service takes an innovative evidence based approach to tackling the issue of pain without prescribing pills and medications! This pain initiative makes use of emerging research pointing to the efficacy of myoActivation® - A unique approach to ‘needling’. Furthermore, the service recognizes the complex interplay between mental health and substance use and the subjective experience of pain and as such is offered as an embedded service within CIRP.
