Naturopathic approach is all about allowing natural healing process to take place with minimal intervention. It has been used for thousands of years, and it is embraced by more patients in the treatment of pain and injuries.
In this article, we will introduce Nonsurgical Pain Management to help you make informed decision about treatment of your acute or chronic pain.
Pain is felt when a signal sent from a nerve detecting damaged tissue to the brain along spinal cord. Brain then decides how to interpret the signal and respond to it. This whole process is individualistic, meaning it is different from one person to another but if it is not addressed on time, it will become chronic and inflamed over time.
Nonsurgical Pain Management refers to a collection of regenerative therapies to heal damaged tissue and pain associated with it.
Natural Regenerative Therapy wakes up cells in the exact location of the injury to initiate the healing process by inviting stem cells, blast cells and growth factors to heal and rebuild the tissue. Due to the presence of minimal intervention, the body is capable of healing the injury permanently without any side effects and pain recurrence.
On the other hand, Conventional Treatments incorporate techniques such as RICE (rest, ice, compress, elevate) and medications such as anti-inflammatory (NSAID), opiate or benzodiazepine, and cortisone injections. All these treatments are effective in the short term, but they do not show the cause of pain and have long term side effects with recurring pain.
Regenerative Joint Therapy has been used with great success for healing injuries in different parts of the body including:
Shoulder (rotator cuff tear, labrum tear, ligament damage, adhesive capsulitis)
Elbow (tennis elbow, golfers elbow, ligament damage)
Wrist (carpal tunnel, ligament damage)
Fingers (trigger finger, joint inflammation)
Low back pain (SI ligament laxity, herniated discs, sciatic pain)
Hip (labrum tear, gluteus tear, piriformis tear)
Knee (meniscus damage, ligament (ACL, PCL, MCL, LCL), jumpers knee)
Ankle (ligament sprain/strain, plantar fasciitis)
At your initial consultation, you are asked about your current pain and injuries, medical history and medications to select the most effective nonsurgical therapy for you.
Since some drugs can interfere with treatments, you must inform your practitioner of any anticoagulant (blood thinner) drugs such as aspirin you have been taking.
After your nonsurgical treatment, you are provided with a unique lifestyle plan in order to allow healing and prevent any more pains.
