Integrative Treatment for Pain Conditions
Everyone deals with pain at some point in their lives. It’s a regular part of experiencing physical wear & tear, and it plays an important function of warning us when something isn’t right. While each of us deals with varying levels of pain throughout our lives, it shouldn’t have to be something that we just get used to.
If you’re finding yourself less able to recover when your body is in pain, or if your pain is lasting longer than what seems appropriate to the situation, it may be a sign of a deeper issue. Pain can also be a significant source of stress in our lives, and oftentimes stress is a major contributing factor to pain. This can be a difficult cycle to break. The first step is to uncover the root of what’s causing your pain in the first place.
Some common examples of pain conditions that our practitioners can help you with are:
- Jaw soreness due to clenching
- Muscle tension
- Back pain
- Joint pain
- Pain during pregnancy
If it’s an alignment issue that you’re dealing with, an osteopathic practitioner can help with gentle alignment techniques. Acupuncture can help reduce muscle tension as well as pain and inflammation caused by stress. And a deep tissue massage can help the body relax and rest, no matter what the issue may be.
However, it’s possible that your pain may be linked with an underlying health condition, like a hormonal imbalance, inflammatory condition, or digestive disturbance. In this case, you may benefit from treatment from a naturopathic doctor as well.
