In the time of this opioid epidemic, alternative pain management techniques provide the safest, non-addictive solution to pain control. These techniques stimulate the body’s natural healing process instead of suppressing it like most conventional drugs do.
Many conventional pain medications also carry serious side effects, such as stomach, kidney and liver problems, and some can actually interfere with the healing process itself.
By using holistic therapies, a patient’s reliance on conventional medications can be drastically reduced over time. Back and joint pain due to arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and sports injuries are some of the conditions that can be treated using alternative pain management techniques.
Acupuncture has been practiced around the world for centuries. It stimulates healing by using thin needles, which, when applied at precise points, trigger the release of natural, restorative chemicals in muscles, spinal cord and brain. Acupuncture is widely recognized for effective pain control.
Here’s a quote from The National Institute of Health: “Results from a number of studies suggest that acupuncture may help ease types of pain that are often chronic such as low-back pain, neck pain, and osteoarthritis/knee pain. It also may help reduce the frequency of tension headaches and prevent migraine headaches."
Biopuncture is a steroid-free injection treatment that uses FDA-approved, mostly plant-based, ultra-low dilution product formulas to stimulate and support the healing process. It is used to treat pain and toxin accumulation associated with muscular, joint and other medical disorders.
By gently balancing inflammation, biopuncture not only improves pain and function, but it also promotes long-term healing. Biopuncture is also beneficial for the treatment of colds, flu and many other medical problems.
This non-intoxicating marijuana extract is being credited with helping to treat a host of medical problems -- everything from epileptic seizures to inflammation to sleeplessness. It is a good adjunct to the treatments described above because it not only helps control pain, but also alleviates anxiety frequently associated with chronic pain.
