Professional Help Is Available For Pain Management
You may be managing pain on your own, and it may be working for the most part, but if it becomes difficult to stave off symptoms of pain and discomfort, know that professional help is available. A number of modalities can be used to approach pain management so that you can feel and function your best.
Here at Advanced Integrative Health in Washington, DC and McLean, VA, we employ a spectrum of integrative care therapies to effectively address chronic conditions; the treatments we apply include chiropractic care and medical acupuncture so that our clients aren’t reliant on pharmaceuticals and supplements alone, which can become less effective over time, and which can have a number of unintended side effects.
When should you seek professional help for pain management?
When Your Current Approach Stops Working
Your current approach may have worked beautifully for a period of time, but if it’s not working as effectively as it used to, something has changed. In such a case, you can benefit from an integrative care provider evaluating your condition and your present approach and determining what can be done to diminish your symptoms of pain.
When Infrequent Pain Becomes Chronic
Whether from an injury, a genetic condition, an illness, or something else, you may experience a specific type of pain from time to time. However, when the level or intensity of the pain increases, or it becomes present most or all of the time, you can benefit immensely from the skills and knowledge of an integrative care practitioner who specializes in pain management techniques.
When It’s Related To A Specific Illness Or Condition
Certain conditions often have chronic pain as an associated symptom. These conditions include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Autoimmune diseases, including Crohn’s, celiac, and lupus
- Thyroid diseases, including hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
- Multiple sclerosis (MS)
- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
- Chronic pain syndrome, such as from headaches, muskuloskeletal irregularities, cancer, or other causes
- Dermatological conditions, including psoriasis and rosacea
- Endometriosis and other conditions that lead to pelvic pain as well as pain in other areas of the body
- Osteoporosis and other bone-related conditions
There are many other health issues that contribute to symptoms of chronic pain. Even if your specific condition is not listed above, know that you can get the help that you need in terms of pain management that works.
