How Alternative Medicine Helps Ease Chronic Pain

Alternative medicines are often used as an adjunct or supplemental treatment to traditional treatments to alleviate chronic pain symptoms. If you are suffering from chronic pain and want to explore alternative medicine options for relief, we’re here to guide you.

What is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is a condition in which the patient experiences prolonged, unresponsive pain despite medication and treatment.

The most common cause of chronic pain for people without an injury history is unknown inflammation occurring due to arthritis, diabetes, fibromyalgia, infections, back pain, and irritable bowel.

Common Chronic Pain Symptoms

Chronic pain can range from mild to severe. It might continue day after day or come and go. The painful feelings could be as simple as a constant feeling of “pins-and-needles” in your arm, all the way up to an intense stabbing sensation that lasts for hours at a time. Some of the most common symptoms of chronic pain are:

  • Not feeling hungry
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Weakness
  • Lack of energy
  • Feeling tired
  • Mood changes

How We Can Help You Manage Chronic Pain

People who are experiencing chronic pain are often faced with the decision of either sticking to their medication and surgery or going through a long list of alternative treatments. Alternative treatments may be scoffed at, but these days many alternative medicine centers have become a go-to place for those suffering from chronic pain.

Chronic pain and inflammation centers like MiraZone Spa offer Pulsed Electromagnetic Fields therapy or PEMF therapy to benefit those experiencing acute or chronic pain.

Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy is a way to recharge your body and enhance cellular functions. The magnetic field created by the device induces an electric current that helps cell membranes work better – as well as revitalizing cells in need of repair.

You can also try our Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy or HBOT to further reduce inflammation and promote healing.

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an effective procedure that has been used to treat and heal many conditions, including acute cerebral injury and chronic pain. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy works by providing the body with more of what it needs: Oxygen!

This treatment can give our cells the abundance of oxygen to increase cellular energy and optimize functions in tissue repair, growing new blood vessels, nerve repair, or mobilizing stem cells.

If you want to learn more about PEMF therapy and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, feel free to reach out to our team. We’ll be more than happy to explain to you how these alternative treatments work and how they can help you ease the chronic pain you’re experiencing now.
