When it came to pain medicine, the term “alternative” was never far from the minds of many patients.

In the past, many patients were referred to alternative therapies, which were often designed to relieve pain by manipulating the body or altering the chemical composition of the body.

Today, however, many alternative therapies have come under fire because of a lack of evidence.

There is a growing body of evidence showing that alternative therapies can help relieve pain and even alleviate some chronic conditions, but this evidence is only beginning to be widely shared and accepted.

And despite the growing number of studies, there are still some unanswered questions about alternative therapies that are still being studied.

The new findings are the first to look at the effectiveness of different types of pain medicines on patients with a chronic condition such as cancer.

The results were published online this week in the journal Pain.

A new study conducted by researchers at University College London found that some pain medicines can significantly reduce the pain experienced by people with cancer.

“Pain medications have been used for years to relieve some of the symptoms of cancer and other chronic conditions and are widely used as treatments for pain,” said lead researcher Dr. Michael Satterfield.

“However, we now know that they can also be effective in treating pain.”

The study included more than 2,000 patients with cancer who were undergoing surgery, and compared the patients’ pain with the pain of patients with no cancer.

Patients with cancer were found to be more likely to experience chronic pain compared to patients without cancer.

Pain medication is an ingredient in some popular pain treatments that contain synthetic chemicals, like aspirin, ibuprofen and acetaminophen.

But these medications have side effects, and some are considered to be unsafe or ineffective.

Researchers also looked at how different types and amounts of pain medication affected the patients pain.

Pain medication, including anti-inflammatories, anti-inflammatory medication and pain relievers, decreased pain when compared to those not using any pain medication.

But the pain reduction was not as strong as when people were using their own medications.

For example, when patients used pain medications, pain was reduced by almost 40 percent when compared with patients using a placebo.

When pain medications were not used, pain decreased by less than 5 percent.

The findings showed that pain medication did not have a direct impact on the pain a patient experienced, but it did have an indirect effect.

“It has been suggested that the pain medications themselves are a way to help patients feel better by reducing pain,” Dr. Satterford said.

Pain relief medications may have some benefits in other areas.

“Pain medication may have therapeutic benefits in treating chronic pain, such as reducing the pain and swelling that can be caused by chronic pain,” he said.

But pain medications may also be an effective way to treat other chronic illnesses.

“These findings indicate that it is important to consider alternative treatments for chronic pain management,” he continued.

Pain relievers may also provide patients with pain relief in cases where there is a high likelihood of infection.

“The study showed that the efficacy of alternative pain medication for treating chronic cancer pain was more than twice as great as that of conventional pain medication,” Dr Satterfould said.

The study was supported by a Wellcome Trust Grant and the National Cancer Institute.
