Alternative Pain Management
Therapies & Techniques

In recent years, more and more individuals are turning to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) for the treatment of an acute or chronic pain condition. In fact, according to a 2007 CDC National Health Statistic report, approximately 38 percent of U.S. adults used some form of CAM with pain management topping the list of treated conditions1. In general, complementary and alternative pain management therapies offer patients a holistic alternative to pain control with a focus on mind/body treatments and methodologies. Through our partnership with a network of dedicated healthcare professionals, the pain management physicians and staff of our New England-based practice offer Massachusetts and New Hampshire patients the following complementary and alternative treatment options:

Massage TherapyReiki: Reiki centers on the belief that physical, mental, and spiritual health is influenced by the flow of energy. By placing their hands on or above an energy source known as a chakra, a Reiki practitioner removes energy blockages to promote healing, reduce muscle tension, and ease the sensation of pain.

Massage Therapy: Through the manipulation of soft tissue and muscle, a massage therapist’s goal in the setting of pain management is to decrease muscle tension, increase the flow of oxygen and blood, release endorphins (a natural pain killer), and reduce stress to promote healing and pain relief.

The decision to pursue complementary or alternative pain management treatments is often a personal one. As such, the physicians and caring staff of Pain Management Centers of New England would be happy to discuss CAM therapies as an alternative or complement to pharmacologic, rehabilitative and interventional methods of pain control with interested patients living in the north shore area of Massachusetts and southern New Hampshire. Contact us today for additional information on our alternative pain management programs.
