Our physicians have special training in evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of all different types of pain. Pain is actually a wide spectrum of disorders including acute pain, chronic pain and cancer pain and sometimes a combination of these. This can require a wide variety of skills and techniques to treat the pain.
These skills and techniques include: medication management, physical therapy, chiropractic and massage therapy. Additional treatment options may include trigger point and joint injections, ultrasound, heat & ice, traction and medical marijuana.
All of these skills and services are necessary because pain can involve many aspects of a person’s daily life. Our practice will provide you with a consultation to effectively plan your course of treatment.
Often with extreme or chronic pain, getting rid of the pain altogether isn’t possible, but the team at Karma Wellness Center can help you manage your pain and reduce it to more tolerable levels.
Various types of strong painkilling medications are available, and these do have a part to play in certain circumstances. However, there are also complications associated with these medications, including unpleasant side effects, increasing tolerance, and potential for addiction.
Better pain management is possible using a functional medicine approach. This involves a thorough examination of your medical history, current health, and lifestyle. It’s often possible to significantly reduce pain by improving your general health and well-being.
The Karma Wellness Center team has specialist expertise in using functional medicine to help with pain management.
Soft tissue damage, like tendon, cartilage, and ligament injuries that don’t get the right treatment in the acute stage, can turn into chronic pain problems. Overuse or repetitive strain injuries can also develop into chronic pain conditions.
Chronic pain can sometimes be due to nerve damage or problems within the nerves that make them send out pain signals to your brain despite there being no damage to your tissues. As well as musculoskeletal causes of chronic pain, you might also require pain management for conditions like cancer.
You might also benefit from counseling or other forms of therapy in your pain management plan. Severe or chronic pain can cause mental health problems like depression and anxiety, which need treating just as much as the physical pain.
