In this video, I’m going to let you know WHY opioids don’t work for chronic pain and why the repeated prescribing of opioids for chronic pain is a major issue.

WHO AM I:
I’m Mahin, an Advanced Practice Physiotherapist and Independent Prescriber specialising in Pain Management, working in the West Midlands, UK.
I started The Wellness Puzzle to help people live a life full of enjoyment and experiences, with the freedom of knowing their health or pain will not be a barrier, in the same way I have helped many of my patients.
Outside of work as a Physio and The Wellness Puzzle, I love travelling, coffee, cricket, creating new experiences with the people close to me and keeping active.
