Pain Management Q & A

What should I know about pain management?

Pain management is hard to achieve with conventional medications. Even potent options like opioids are minimally effective for chronic pain and like other prescription pain medicines, they come with serious side effects and the potential for addiction.

For this reason, even medical professionals recommend nonpharmacologic options as the first line of treatment for chronic pain conditions. The team at Acupuncture Centers of South Florida offers several natural options that effectively manage pain.

What conditions benefit from pain management?

Pain management can target any type of acute or chronic pain, from sports injuries and bodywide conditions like fibromyalgia, to ongoing back, neck, shoulder, and knee pain. 

By definition, chronic pain problems require management, as the underlying condition leads to recurring pain.

However, the treatments available at Acupuncture Centers of South Florida don’t just alleviate pain, they target the source of your pain and support your body’s natural healing ability. As a result, they may lead to long-lasting pain relief.

What pain management treatment might I receive?

The team at Acupuncture Centers of South Florida customizes your treatment to meet your unique needs. Your pain management plan may include one or more of these therapies:

Acupuncture

Acupuncture supports your natural healing ability by restoring the flow of energy throughout your body. 

Treatment with acupuncture needles stimulates the release of endorphins, your body’s natural pain relievers, and improves neurochemical communication in areas of your brain that regulate pain.

Acupuncture also promotes and accelerates your body’s ability to heal the underlying condition causing your pain. This helps explain why studies show that acupuncture produces long-lasting pain relief.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy strengthens muscles, restores flexibility and movement, and improves body mechanics. The structured exercises performed during physical therapy reduce your pain and help heal injuries. 

Chiropractic

Chiropractic techniques focus on relieving back, neck, and joint pain by realigning your spine and mobilizing joints. As spinal manipulation relieves pressure on nerves traveling through the spine, you’ll experience pain relief and healing throughout your body.

Manual therapy

Therapeutic massage helps reduce your pain, whether it’s used alone or together with other treatments in your pain management plan. 

Massage stimulates blood flow, relaxes muscles, and releases scar tissue. Your massage sessions also reduce your stress and boost your immune system.

Herbal medicine and nutritional support

Many herbal remedies contain active ingredients that relieve pain and treat the conditions causing your pain. At Acupuncture Centers of South Florida, you’ll also get the nutritional support needed for your body to regain optimal health.
