Integrative Pain HealingIntegrative Pain Healing: Redefining the Concept of Caring for Pain with Intent to Heal

For some people, pain is a part of life. It’s there in the morning upon waking up, and it still persists at night, when it’s time for bed. With the ability to deeply interfere with quality of life, pain can be all-consuming and extremely frustrating to address.

At Infinite Health, we understand the struggles chronic pain can cause and we are dedicated to providing actionable solutions. Rather than taking a traditional approach to pain management, which generally entails use of opioid medications and short-term nerve blocks, we believe in acting as an integrative pain center to address your physical and psychological needs from the inside out.

What Is Integrative Medicine?

Integrative medicine refers to the practice of incorporating numerous methods, including both traditional and alternative therapies, to target symptoms at the source. Rather than masking sensations of pain, we strive to address root causes, offering relief that does not end with pharmaceutical solutions. With the right opportunities, it’s possible to regain control over your life and live pain-free or with minimal symptoms. From chiropractic adjustments to the use of acupuncture, we can help to mitigate ever-present sensations of pain to provide freedom of movement and activity.

While Infinite Health does prescribe pharmaceuticals as necessary, this is not our primary objective and is always accompanied by alternate solutions. The overall goal of our comprehensive approach to pain healing is to reduce dependence on pain medicine, so we will always emphasize a full range of the modalities through a personalized, patient-centric approach to treatment.

Stivax for Pain Management

Chronic pain can be debilitating, particularly for those individuals for whom even pain medication has not yielded positive results. In these cases, neurostimulation may be an option, using the body’s own abilities to address pain and provide long-lasting comfort.

An alternative to traditional surgically-implanted neurostimulators, the Stivax device takes advantage of Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation. CES delivers special low-frequency and sensation-free impulses to the brain to interfere with the pain signals communicated by nerve cells. This process can interrupt pain naturally, preventing a response to normally uncomfortable stimuli.

The Stivax neurostimulator is unobtrusive and easy to wear. Special arrays are placed behind the ear at the base of the skull based on individual symptoms and a battery pack is affixed to the chest, below the collarbone. A majority of patients experience an alleviation of symptoms after three two-week cycles, alternating the device between ears.

Customized Pain Treatments at Infinite Health

At Infinite Health, we know that pain can vary greatly from one patient and one condition to another. That’s why a customized approach to care is at the core of our integrative pain medicine services. Instead of prescribing the same medications in the same doses, we go deeper, utilizing a unique and personalized blend of proven methods to address whole-body wellness.’

In order to restore a confident sense of self in addition to dealing with pain, we utilize contemplative awareness practices, cognitive behavioral practices, and hypnosis as well as biofeedback modalities. In patients with hypertension, diabetes, depression, anxiety, coronary artery disease, and numerous other issues, we also employ meditation and other relaxation techniques to alleviate symptoms outside of the use of medication.

Pain can negatively affect your day-to-day existence, but that doesn’t mean that you need to accept a life of chronic pain as your only option. At the integrative pain center at Infinite Heath, you can get the support you need to find relief. With an innovative blend of traditional and alternative therapies, including use of the Stivax neurostimulation device, we can help you regain your sense of freedom.
