Pros and Cons of Alternative Pain Management
Alternative pain management is beneficial for those who do not enjoy traditional methods of pain management, who dislike taking pills or who might find taking pills too costly. If you like a more natural method of treatment, a form of alternative pain management might be the right choice for you.
Alternative treatments can offer a holistic view, identifying ways the body can naturally heal itself. This form of treatment is typically non-surgical and minimally invasive. Some forms of therapy that are offered might include Ozone Therapy, Stem Cell Therapy and Prolotherapy. These types of treatments reduce pain using natural resources or work by stimulating the body’s own healing methods. Alternative pain management treatments work for people who suffer from body pain, joint pain, inflammation, infection, arthritis, carpal tunnel, chronic disease, and more. Treatments that are focused on natural, holistic forms of therapy introduce new ways to reduce symptoms by utilizing natural resources, such as oxygen in Ozone Therapy. Other forms, such as Stem Cell Therapy, find ways to utilize the resources already found in the body to heal an area of disease or injury.
Disadvantages of alternative pain management might be that the specific therapy of choice does not heal the area of injury or disease. The therapy must be done correctly, or the patient might experience side effects. For instance, if too much ozone is inhaled, it may lead to minor symptoms such as headache and nausea.
