Question: Can Morphine Be Administered Directly Into The Spine Area And When Might That Be A Good Option For My Pain?

Answer: Morphine can be injected directly into the spine.

We use it intra-operatively for post-operative pain. And more recently we use it for chronic non-malignant pain and malignant pain as a last resort where we insert a catheter, followed by a pump that's inserted under your skin, and allows you to receive very small amounts of morphine, and thus theoretically less side effects.
