Latta introduces legislation reducing barriers to non-opioid pain management alternatives


Congressman Bob Latta, R-Bowling Green, has introduced H.R. 5833, legislation working to increase accessibility to non-opioid treatment for those suffering from chronic pain.

People who are suffering from chronic pain often turn to opioids to alleviate their discomfort, which in some cases, has led to a rise of misuse and abuse. Opioid alternatives, including certain medical devices and procedures, can provide relief without the risk of addiction.
