Pain Relief for Your Active Lifestyle.
Pain can take many forms; from an occasional stabbing or throbbing feeling, known as acute pain, to a steady pain that will not go away, or chronic pain. Figuring out what kind of pain you have is important since it can help determine the best strategy for pain management.
The source of pain can be difficult to pinpoint, hard to measure, and sometimes difficult to fix. For generations the default method for treating pain has remained largely the same: prescription and over-the-counter painkillers. Nowadays integrative medicine, which combines conventional treatment with alternative therapies, has been proven to offer an effective approach to pain relief.
Our Pain Relief Program uses a variety of integrative medical therapies including: acupuncture, myotherapy/massage therapy, anti-inflammatory diet program, prolotherapy, yoga, meditation and prescription medications when needed. Our physicians may also refer for physical therapy, osteopathic spinal manipulation, cortisone injections or other pain management techniques if necessary. For chronic pain management, our doctors may also provide medical marijuana certification if your health condition qualifies.
Of the more than 100 million Americans who experience chronic pain (defined as any discomfort that lasts three to six months or longer), the majority are women. They are more than twice as likely as men to have rheumatoid arthritis and seven times as likely to have fibromyalgia.
Whether you experience back pain, arthritis, tension headaches, migraines, fibromyalgia, carpal tunnel or muscle spasms, our experts will help ease pain, reduce pain-related disability and improve your quality of life.
