Intrathecal Therapy (ITT) has been used for decades, but Micro-Dosing is a newer version of this pain treatment. Micro-Dosing follows FDA guidelines and also requires specific preparation prior to the treatment for safety and better results.
Patients must go through a six-week detox period before their treatment. Detox is required because once patients are treated with Micro-Dosing, the small amount of morphine used will have better results for patients. If patients prepare properly before Micro-Dosing and their body benefits from the treatment, they will not have to deal with any other medications or treatments. Micro-Dosing on its own will have a continuous effect of patients’ pain.
