Non-Invasive Pain Management
June 13, 2017
As we get older and our bodies don’t heal like they used to, or we have old or new injuries that nag at our day-to-day, pain management becomes less of a “maybe” and more of a “definitely.” At Hamilton Mill Family Complete Care, we go to great lengths to help with all of your non-invasive pain management requirements. Our goal is to allow you to improve your pain without the use of prescription drugs, invasive surgeries or procedures. With world class technology and science, we are able to approach our clients using the latest natural supplements and devices.
The words “spinal decompression” don’t give the impression of comfort or relief but rest assured, once your spine has been decompressed, you’ll feel like a new person. By creating a vacuum inside the disc, spinal decompression causes the herniation of the disc to pull back into line and promotes the flow of blood and nutrients to allow those elements to heal the disc.
As far as popularity goes, class 4 laser (K-Laser) treatments are not that popular. However, still a rapidly growing field, laser treatments offer profound benefits regarding pain management and healing of damaged tissue. K-Laser therapy is basically an infrared laser that helps reduce pain and inflammation and helps to promote both hard and soft tissue healing. The options for K-Laser therapy offer a robust array of treatments.
TRIGGER POINT INJECTION
These injections focus on areas of inflammation and spasm in skeletal muscle. Common sites of treatment are the shoulders, trapezius, and upper back muscles. Typically there is a palpable knot or lump that is fraught with pain. Injections are performed directly into the knots themselves with various anesthetics or steroids, or sometimes a mixture of both. There are times when a needle alone is injected into the affected area and this allows the inflammation to heal without the use of medication.
PERSONAL TENS UNITS
TENS is an acronym for Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. TENS machines work by stimulating pulsations across the surface of the skin and the nerve endings. These employ a method of interception that allows them to stop the pain signals from reaching your brain. TENS units are utilized to alleviate pain and give patients a chance for a better quality of life.
