Chronic pain can be categorized as most costly, prevalent and disabling conditions in various workplaces and clinics and it most cases, it remains to be rarely treated. The systematic arrangements and the protocols followed for treatment is not universally accepted by the pain managers, hence boosting traditional methods of treatment and personal experiences.

Therefore, as indicated by the issue of Mr., contraindications of CAMS can prove to save the problem and enable the patient to live free from life. The subsequent sections will illustrate what needs to be exactly done to Mr. NX to disable the conditions of the pain and ensure that the combinations, of therapy through the expansion of knowledge of pharmacological options are available and able to manage different pain mechanism.
