Integrative and mind/body therapies can be effective in pain management for patients. Integrative medicine emphasizes a full range of personalized healthy lifestyle approaches that tend to physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
Integrative medicine extends beyond responding to illness to a new level of supporting optimal health and preventing illness, and can reduce pain and may provide complete pain relief in patients experiencing acute and chronic pain conditions.
Acupuncture and other traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) therapies are improving mainstream care by forging a path for integrative medicine. Acupuncture can be incorporated into conventional care treatment for many pain-related conditions within family medicine, internal medicine and women’s health care. Acupuncture can effectively treat:
- Low back pain.
- Neck and shoulder pain.
- Headaches and migraine.
Using integrative therapies for wellness is proving to be the medicine of the future as holistic therapies become more comprehensively understood. Nearly 50 percent of consumers of the current health care market seek out complementary and alternative therapies, such as acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine and massage therapy.
