Learn How To Manage Your Pain

How your integrative medicine doctor in Phoenix, AZ, can help you manage your pain

If you live with chronic pain, you already know how it affects your mind, body, and spirit. Pain can make it difficult to think about anything else. Fortunately, your integrative medicine doctor is an expert at non-invasive pain management, so you can get back to living your life.

Dr. Kevin Chan at Pineapple Health in Phoenix, AZ, provides a wide range of medical and wellness services, including holistic pain management.

Acute or chronic pain can result in a wide variety of physical, mental, and emotional issues including:

  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Elevated heart rate
  • Lack of mobility
  • Weight gain
  • Depression

Traditional pain management typically involves taking medications, which can include addictive substances. You don’t have to go the traditional route. You have other, more holistic options which are good for your body.

Your integrative medicine doctor will perform a comprehensive medical examination, establishing the underlying cause of your pain. By treating the underlying cause instead of just the pain, your quality-of-life will improve.

Your doctor will discuss several treatment options with you, to help you learn to manage your pain. Treatment options include:

Chiropractic care including manual adjustments, if your pain is caused by poor body alignment or posture, overuse, repetitive movement stress, or poor body mechanics.

Therapeutic massage, if your pain is caused by overused muscles, strained tendons or ligaments, a sports injury, or an accident.

An exercise and stretching regimen, if your pain is caused by tense muscles, ligaments, or tendons.

Your doctor may also recommend:

  • Acupuncture and acupressure, to tap into your body’s own healing processes
  • Electrical stimulation (TENS) to help you teach your body to relax and ease tension
  • Mindfulness practice and meditation, to help you learn to manage your pain
  • Dietary changes, to help limit inflammation and swelling
  • Herbal remedies, vitamins, and supplements, to give your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy

You can learn to manage your pain, and your doctor can help. To discover more about learning to manage your pain, call Dr. Kevin Chan at Pineapple Health in Phoenix, AZ. You can reach him in the office by calling (480) 961-2366, so call now.
