Non-Surgical & Non-Narcotic Pain Management

Chronic Pain Management Treatment

Chronic pain can result from a variety of injuries or conditions. Many individuals seek non-surgical and non-narcotic pain management treatment. Treatment is determined by the history and severity of the pain. The core concept behind most interventional pain management care is identifying the origin of the pain and then attempting to correct the abnormality not just mask the symptoms. The diversity of painful conditions requires diverse, and multi-faceted treatment approaches.

The National Institutes of Health Pain Management Fact Sheet(2010) states that “Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined.” And “Pain is cited as the most common reason Americans access the health care system. It is a leading cause of disability and it is a major contributor to health care costs.” According to the National Center for Health Statistics (2006), approximately 76.2 million, one in every four Americans, have suffered from pain that lasts longer than 24 hours and millions more suffer from acute pain.

Non-Surgical Pain Management

Complete Wellness Center of Orange City offers non-surgical pain management through chiropractic care. Rather than invasive surgery CWC offers pain relief by combining medical, chiropractic, overall wellness practices and other comprehensive treatments to reduce chronic pain.

A recent analysis of the literature on surgery and invasive procedure effectiveness states “Particularly in the field of pain-related conditions, more evidence from randomized placebo-controlled trials is needed to avoid continuation of ineffective treatments.” and “Our results have implications for clinical research and practice by arguing against the continued use of ineffective invasive treatments, especially in the field of chronic pain.”
