MDH, Hennepin Healthcare launch first-of-its-kind pain treatment map

“This is critical that people have this knowledge,” said Dr. Arti Prasad, the director of NO PAIN MN (Non-Opioid Pain Alleviation Information Network) and Hennepin Healthcare chief strategic development officer.

It took two years to create the map. Dr. Prasad worked with Hennepin Healthcare Chiropractor Dr. Rick Printon. He collaborates with physical therapists and acupuncturists to help patients with chronic pain.

“It’s really a combination of care,” said Dr. Printon, NO PAIN MN Co-director. “We’re the non-medication option and we can put one, two, three, four different therapies with the patients to help them reduce their pain.”
