“People – being individual as they are – respond differently to treatment – and this is true of those in chronic pain,” said Peers. “There are fantastic success stories of chronic-pain patients who have taken large doses of opioids for years and who then go to physical therapy and are able to taper off medication and overcome pain with the right exercise regimen.”
