Pain

Treating the root cause.

When it comes down to it, pain is why people seek medical care. Have you noticed that you don’t do things you love to do because pain gets in your way? Is it now difficult to go about everyday tasks due to constant distraction from pain? We can help you. At the SCNM Pain Relief Center, we take a different approach to pain treatment.

Every patient has a custom treatment plan designed by a team of clinicians that may include naturopathic physicians, licensed acupuncturists, massage therapists, cranial sacral therapists, mind-body specialists, and chiropractors.

Many patients come to see our practitioners when conventional medicine is not helping or is only helping a little bit. Other patients see us to avoid dangerous narcotic pain medications or invasive surgery. Our practitioners can help with chronic pain caused by everything from arthritis to sports injuries.

Physical treatment approaches used are acupuncture, physio-therapies, manipulation and various injection techniques. Also utilized in a medicinal context are nutrition, both diet and supplements, as well as botanical and homeopathic medicines. If necessary, prescription items can be called in to the patient’s pharmacy, and referrals for surgical intervention are made. Mind-body techniques, including neurofeedback and counseling, are also offered for psychological/emotional causes of pain. Movement therapies and exercise are also recommended to tone and relax muscles and create new postural patterns.
