Responsible Pain Management
Prescription medications and invasive surgeries can often be used to treat acute pain and chronic pain. Both of these options can be helpful to individuals that are suffering but they both also come with a host of concerning side effects and issues. Surgeries can lead to difficult and lengthy recoveries and oftentimes are not a permanent solution. Pain medications can have uncomfortable and sometimes negative side effects. These medications can also result in pain medication addiction, a serious and lengthy mental health issue. These concerns with traditional pain management practices have led many people to seek out more natural, holistic options. Some of these options that we provide at Integrated Health Solutions are lidocaine injections, prolotherapy, and other integrative approaches.
Lidocaine is a local anesthetic that is used to numb specific areas of the body. At Integrated Health Solutions, we use lidocaine injections at your body’s natural trigger points to help alleviate chronic pain, inflammation, muscle spasms and more. Some of the areas we typically inject are joints, neck, back, and shoulders. These injections numb and soothe irritated areas and can offer immediate relief in a minimally invasive, non-medicated way that lasts for days or weeks.
Prolotherapy is a newer technique that we offer in our office that focuses on promoting your body’s natural healing response. Prolotherapy is when you inject dextrose (or another irritant) into your body to jumpstart your cells’ healing response. Prolotherapy can be used to treat fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease, back pain and more. As with lidocaine injections, this option is both minimally invasive and does not require medication. Many patients feel relief when these injections are used in areas that are causing them pain.
Integrated Health Solutions professionals believe wholeheartedly in integrative medicine. What does this mean? It means that our professionals believe in doing what serves you best which typically will involve an integrative approach, and combining different traditional and holistic approaches to provide you lasting, effective pain relief. For both personal and medical reasons individuals will often require noninvasive modes of care. Integrated Health Solutions offers a wide range of options for this type of care and promotes treatments that provide the most effective, natural forms of healing.
At Integrated Health Solutions we believe in providing a patient-oriented plan of care. We know that what works best for one person doesn’t always for another which makes it imperative to create an individualized treatment plan for you to receive the best results possible.
