LEAST RESTRICTIVE ALTERNATIVE

an understanding that where possible, medical treatment will not over-compensate for the situation causing undue stress and potential harm to the patient concerned - less is more.

LEAST RESTRICTIVE ALTERNATIVE: "In medical conditions, the least restrictive alternative allows physicians to weight a balance between preventative measures and then pain it will cause the patient."
