08 Apr Pain Management without Narcotics
Mile High Spine & Pain Center provides numerous pain management options and alternatives to risky and addictive pain medications. “Across Colorado and the United States, rates of opioid addiction and overdose are devastating communities, families and individuals. Colorado recorded 558 opioid overdose deaths in 2017 from both prescription opioids and illegal opioids such as heroin. The opioid epidemic is a result of a number of challenges, including a sharp and steady increase in opioids such as hydrocodone and oxycodone prescribed for patients by their doctors,” reports the Colorado Department of Human Services. Learn how you can find relief without the drugs.
Rather than turning to invasive procedures with long healing times, consider alternative options that support the health of the entire system. Chiropractic treatments, allergy testing, spinal adjustments, lifestyle improvements, neuropathy treatments and massage can all work together to lower pain levels and improve your overall feeling of well-being.
Effective Non-Narcotic Treatment for Chronic Pain
Chronic pain can have devastating effects on the quality of life that you are able to experience and achieve. Chronic pain is loud. It’s all encompassing. It becomes something you can’t ignore because it is always there; always making its presence known. Our doctors are dedicated to helping you eliminate and diagnose the cause of your chronic pain so you can be freed from the physical, mental, and emotional pain and struggles that chronic pain causes. We offer the following non-narcotic pain management treatment options for you:
Much of recurring pain can be traced back to the health of your spine. Your spine houses a network of nerves that send messages that affect every part of your body from your head to your toes. Spinal misalignments and compressed nerves can cause serious chronic pain symptoms when not addressed. Chiropractic adjustments not only lead to optimum healing and long-term health, but real results.
Some patients that come to visit our office have chronic pain conditions that can only be treated, not cured. Others come to us with conditions that we can both treat and cure. Massage therapy can benefit both groups of chronic pain sufferers. Inflammation and limited range of motion are not always cured with massage therapy, but they can definitely be relieved. Massage therapy improves your circulation which aids in healing. Muscles that are tense because of injuries and pain can be manually relaxed through massage offering you pain relief and reduced stress levels.
Trigger Point Therapy
Are you suffering from depression, anxiety or post-traumatic stress? Have you recently been a victim of a traumatic event or injury? Do you suffer from a systemic or localized infection? Do you suffer from an auto-immune disease or condition that causes you daily pain? If you can answer yes to any of these questions, then trigger point therapy can help you. Stress, injuries, spinal misalignments and inflammation can cause our muscles to develop knots and trigger points all throughout our body causing daily pain. This pain is often not limited to the muscle knot area, and can be found at, seemingly, unrelated parts of your body. Trigger point therapy locates these muscle knots, relaxes them and relieves your pain and stress symptoms.
Nerve damage is one of the hardest conditions to diagnose and treat because the symptoms are so similar to a variety of different injuries and diseases. Nerve damage can create sharp pain and dysfunction and doesn’t have to be treated surgically. Our team is equipped to diagnose your nerve damage and related pain with our diagnostic tools and techniques. Electrostimulation and massage therapy can help treat your neuropathy symptoms safely and effectively.
