Non-Invasive Pain ReliefJanuary 3, 2019
When you’re in pain, everything from walking the dog to getting a good night’s’ sleep can be difficult, leading to further complications ranging from weight gain and muscle loss to mental health issues. Here at Infinite Health, we know that pain is a serious issue for many Americans – that’s why we’re committed to offering innovative, non-invasive pain relief options that are safe, effective, and individualized.
Going Beyond ‘Band-aid’ Solutions to Pain Management
Conventional medicine tends to use a reactive approach to pain management with pharmaceutical and surgical treatments that often deliver less-than-satisfactory results. Both over-the-counter and prescription medications for pain are designed to provide short-term relief at best. These drugs often come with risks and side-effects.
Invasive surgery is also used to treat debilitating, chronic pain; however, many pain-relieving surgical procedures often have disappointing results. It’s not uncommon for patients to experience pain that is either worse than what they had before undergoing surgery or to have complications from the procedure that create new problems with pain and functionality.
Alternative to Opioids and Addictive Medications
When considering the problem of pain it’s impossible to ignore the opioid epidemic. Every year more than 70,000 Americans die from accidental opioid-overdose, and in many of these cases, the victims were taking prescription medications in an effort to deal with severe pain. Even over-the-counter pain products like acetaminophen and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) have the potential to create a drug dependency along with serious side-effects.
As patients and doctors alike develop a greater understanding of the drawbacks of traditional pain treatments, the medical community has begun to shift towards a focus on non-invasive pain relief options.
Focused on Pain Prevention
The root cause of most types of pain is inflammation – when swelling occurs within the body, a complex reaction occurs which involves the nerve centers in the brain as well as the suppression of hormones that act as natural pain relievers.
At Infinite Health Integrative Medicine Center, our approach to non-invasive pain relief involves a comprehensive, patient-centric assessment that looks at how we can treat the presenting pain symptoms and prevent pain by working to heal the root cause of the discomfort.
We address issues such as diet and exercise to look for ways to eliminate inflammation triggers while relieving pain, and we have recently added Stivax Neurostimulation Therapy to our roster of health optimization tools (read our recent press release). This non-invasive neurostimulation device works by sending a mild electrical current through the earlobe which act on the nerve centers within the brain, helping to control brain signals that trigger blood pressure and pain.
