ALTERNATIVES TO PAIN MEDICATION FOR THE INDIVIDUAL WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES

Many individuals who have a developmental disability are sensitive to medications that may be prescribed to them. They are not able to be treated for pain with standard treatment methods and alternatives to standard pain management must be sought. These alternatives are adjuncts and, in some instances, are the method(s) most successful for the individual.

In this module you will receive information on the alternative methods of treating pain in the individual with a developmental disability. Focus is placed upon the use of:

• Non-prescription medications • The use of different natural techniques that an individual with DD commonly utilizes that go unnoticed, and other alternative therapies that can be utilized
