Ottawa Now – Designed to relieve short-term pain, Canadian study finds that anti-inflammatory drugs could led to chronic pain down the road


If you sprain your ankle, and you are craving instant pain relief, how long does it take for you to bring out the Advil bottle? While it might prove effective in the short-term, a new Canadian study says you might pay the price down the road. It finds that using anti-inflammatory drugs and steroids after injury could increase your chances of developing chronic pain. Jeffrey Mogil, a Professor of Psychology at McGill University and the main author behind this study, joins Kristy Cameron on Ottawa Now.
