Abstract/Description

Non-opioid chronic pain management treatments were researched. Specifically, exercise, cognitive behavioral therapy, and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs showed little to no efficacy in relieving complicated chronic pain. However, when a biopsychosocial approach was used, better pain management and coping was reported. This approach addresses multiple aspects of patient needs, consistent with Nursing Theorist Betty Neuman’s System Model which was used to guide research. Therefore, a biopsychosocial approach to chronic unrelieved pain management is recommended.
