      Natural Pain Management in Roswell, GA

      It’s estimated at least 60 percent of people with pain, especially chronic pain from arthritis or musculoskeletal conditions, have used Natural Pain Management. The dangers made clear by the opioid crisis have highlighted the potential for addiction with conventional pain medications. Their erosive impact on health has also become clear – even with NSAIDs or acetaminophen, especially when overused, as they often are.

      Herbal Medicine is one of the most commonly utilized forms of natural pain relief. In the U.S., herbal medicine is currently being used by 20 million Americans, valued at $1.5 billion – and it’s growing 25 percent annually. Globally, the herbal medicine market is estimated at over $70 billion. Acupuncture and acupressure have a worldwide following, as well - as do many of the forms of Natural Pain Management Solutions we offer.

      An important aspect of Natural Pain Management is the same patient-centric approach centered on each individual patient that you can always expect from Dr. Gail Ravello and her team at Natural Medical Solutions Wellness Center. If you are ready to experience alternative, more natural methods of pain relief, try our personalized Natural Pain Management approach by calling us today at (770) 674-6311 or contacting us online.

      What is Natural Pain Management?

      Natural Pain Management offers an approach that is centered on relieving pain by identifying and addressing the underlying cause of the pain and treating the whole person. Non-toxic, natural pain relief methods are preferred as first-line forms of treatment, ranging from proper diet and nutrition to herbal medicine, healthy movement, nutritional supplements, homeopathy, lifestyle modification, alternative therapies like massage and acupressure, as well as education and counseling.

      It may also involve identifying pain triggers – like inflammation that may be caused by factors unrelated to the injury or medical condition causing your pain. Some people find that when they eat certain foods that cause an inflammatory response in the body, levels of pain increase.

      Some of the alternative therapies we utilize as Natural Pain Management Solutions include:

      How Does Natural Pain Management Treat Pain?

      Endorphins are your body's natural painkillers. Endorphins are released by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland in response to pain or stress – designed to relieve pain and provide a temporary sense of wellbeing. Some natural pain relievers work by stimulating the release of endorphins, but each method has its own specific pathway to pain relief.

      Before using any type of natural pain relief, it is important to work with a doctor who understands Natural Pain Management. Some natural pain relief therapies may not be appropriate or safe for your medical conditions, even if they are natural. All relevant factors should be considered before undergoing any treatment, including your medical conditions and history.

      There are several foundational approaches to treating pain with Natural Pain Management that are core to its practice. First, we take an individualized, patient-centered approach and focus on the root causes of your pain. With our expertise in natural medicine and alternative treatment for pain, we utilize a complex understanding of health and the role hormones, adrenal fatigue, genetics, stress, etc., can play in chronic pain conditions. We consider issues conventional doctors may not link to your pain – ranging from food allergens to environmental toxins, examining the impact inflammatory response can have on pain.

      What Conditions Can Best Be Treated with Natural Pain Management?

      While all medical conditions involving pain will benefit from consultation with a Natural Pain Management doctor, some of the pain conditions that respond best to a Natural Pain Management approach include:

      • Migraine or tension headache
      • Cancer pain
      • Carpal tunnel syndrome

      The Connection Between Mental Wellness and Pain

      Addressing mental wellness can also be essential in addressing pain. Stress is a known contributor to the experience of pain. Many people who suffer from depression also experience physical pain. We are not referring to psychosomatic pain – this is physical pain. We are trained in various psychological techniques including counseling, nutritional balancing, stress management and biofeedback to treat physical as well as mental or emotional conditions like depression and anxiety.
