Medical Marijuana

Medical marijuana, or cannabis, is one tool among many that can help patients alleviate pain, spasticity and nausea for serious medical conditions such as brain and spinal cord injuries, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis neurodegenerative diseases, severe chronic or intractable pain and more. It can be a part of a comprehensive treatment plan coordinated by a Good Shepherd physiatrist that considers the patient’s condition, other medications, effect on work performance and other factors.
