Pain Pump Medication
Pain pumps have been used by people attempting to treat or manage pain. It distributes medicine directly to the spinal fluid surrounding the spinal cord. With the use of pain pumps, often a lower dose of medicine is required. This lower dose decreases the potency of the side-effects caused by the medication in comparison to when the same medicine is ingested at a higher dose through the oral route. There are specific medications to be used in pain pumps, for pain and for spasticity.
