Healthy Living: Opioid Alternative

In light of the opioid crisis, doctors are searching for alternatives to help patients in chronic pain.

Physical therapy, numbing creams, different drugs, these are all common alternatives. 

But here’s a new one: meditation.

In Healthy Living, Courtney Hunter explains how this out-of-the-box technique helped one woman continue her favorite past time.

Dr. Marco recommends a couple apps to his patients: “the back doctor” and “stop, breathe, and think.”

You can find both of those for free in the app store. The exercises trigger the body to make endorphins.
