Alternative Pain Management

In Maryland, Pennsylvania, Florida and Virginia


Alternative pain management encompasses a variety of treatment options that aim to alleviate pain without relying solely on prescription medications or invasive procedures. Instead, alternative treatments focus on holistic approaches, such as physical therapies, mind-body techniques, and lifestyle changes, to improve overall well-being while reducing pain.

What Is Alternative Pain Management?

Individuals who live with chronic pain typically try several treatment options. Some treatments work better than others, and some do not work at all. In some cases, a combination of different types of pain management is needed.

Alternative pain management techniques vary widely, from alternative therapies like acupuncture and IV therapies to ultraviolet techniques like infrared saunas and photobiomodulation. One of the key benefits of alternative pain management is the potential to reduce reliance on prescription medications, which can lead to unwanted side effects, addiction, and dependency. Additionally, alternative pain management techniques have been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of conditions, such as chronic pain, headaches, and joint pain.

At Pain and Spine Specialists, we partner with Shakthi Health and Wellness Center, our sister company, to offer patients access to alternative therapies when interventional and chronic pain management treatments are insufficient.
