Treatment Plan for Chronic Back Pain with Medical Cannabis for a Construction Worker

Name: Dave

Patient: Construction Worker

Age: 45

Background: Chronic back pain due to a work-related injury

Treatment Goal: To find an alternative treatment that can effectively manage his chronic back pain.


Treatment Plan:

Consultation with a Medical Professional

The patient will need to book a consultation with a medical professional at Elios Clinics to discuss his chronic back pain and explore medical cannabis as a treatment option. The consultation will include an overview of medical cannabis and how it can help manage chronic pain, as well as a discussion of the patient's concerns and questions.

Cannabis Education

The patient will be provided with educational materials on medical cannabis and how it can be used to manage chronic pain. The materials will include information on different strains and products, dosing, administration methods, and potential side effects.

Cannabis Prescription

If medical cannabis is determined to be a suitable treatment option, the patient will receive a prescription for medical cannabis from our medical professionals. The prescription will be based on the patient's individual needs and medical history.


The patient will be required to follow up with Elios Clinics every three months to assess the effectiveness of the treatment and make any necessary adjustments to the prescription.



Medical cannabis is not a cure for chronic back pain, and the patient may need to continue using it long-term to manage their symptoms.

Medical cannabis can have side effects, such as dizziness, fatigue, and dry mouth, which the patient will need to manage.

The cost of medical cannabis may be a limitation for some patients, as it is not currently covered by the NHS and can be expensive.
