What Alternative Pain Treatments Are Right For Me?
There are a variety of alternative pain treatments to help meet the needs of every patient, including:
TENS Unit: TENS stimulation is a highly effective, pain-relieving solution for the treatment of migraines. As a non-invasive and painless method, low-intensity electrical pulses are transmitted to nerve fibers in the painful area, producing an immediate effect. By blocking the transmission of the pain signal to the brain, headaches are relieved.
Cold Laser Therapy: Cold laser treatment can be used to treat chronic headaches, migraines, cluster headaches, tension headaches, and more. This form of treatment is non-invasive and administered in a safe, simple, and straightforward manner. As a great alternative to surgical procedures, patients don’t have to worry about side effects or pain during treatment.
Botox: Botox is a proven method for treating chronic migraines. During treatment, botox is injected around pain fibers that are involved in headaches and enters the nerve endings around where it is injected. As a result, botox blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission, and prevents activation of pain networks in the brain.
Physical Therapy: The ultimate goal of physical therapy is to help you move better, from head to toe, including your jaw and face, without pain. Following a thorough examination, therapy will be specific to your situation and may include manual therapy such as soft tissue massage, joint mobilization, and Myofascial release. Some other evidence-based treatments include dry needling, corrective stretching and exercise, posture correction, and more.
Medical Grade Supplements: Medical grade supplements help your body function properly, bringing harmony to your body and mind by restoring balance. If your body is lacking important nutrients, taking these beneficial supplements will replenish them to improve your overall health and wellness.
