Non-Medical Pain Management at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine
The treatments we offer at our Roanoke, Virginia practice are designed to address the root cause of the patient’s problem, not just mask or temporarily reduce symptoms. As an integrative practice, we have providers from several different disciplines of healthcare, all with experience in the treatment of both chronic and acute pain from joint problems. We offer the best array of alternative solutions for natural relief and management of chronic pain, such as:
Trigger Point Injections
These injections are used to help address knots in the muscles, which help relax and balance out the body’s musculature. For management of chronic pain from back or joint issues, this treatment offers great relief and works exceptionally well when combined with chiropractic and comprehensive physical therapy.
Regenerative medicine offers an advanced natural approach to pain management. These treatments use human cellular tissue products derived from the placenta and/or umbilical cord after a live, healthy birth. This alternative method is best for management and pain relief for chronic ligament problems or joint degeneration.
The physical therapy programs we offer at Balance Wellspace Integrative Medicine take a comprehensive approach where we look at the entire person to determine any muscle imbalances that could be contributing to the patient’s chronic pain. This wholistic approach is extremely effective for not only strengthening joints during recovery, but also less invasive management of chronic pain.
Our Doctors of Chiropractic are specialists in chronic pain - including disc conditions. For many pain management patients, this treatment is an extremely effective alternative to surgery and offers natural relief for both back and joint problems.
Spinal Decompression Therapy
Spinal decompression therapy is an innovative therapy that has been proven effective in treating pain associated with disc related issues.
Spinal Decompression Therapy works by reducing the pressure inside the disc that caused the bulge or herniation, allowing for the flow of the vital fluids and nutrients that are essential for the disc bulge to heal. Decompression therapy helps to rehydrate the disc, relieve nerve pressure, and pain.
We have several advanced therapies available in our Roanoke, Virginia practice to help address inflammation, pain, and improve cellular signaling. The tools often used with our patients could include Shockwave Therapy, Sanexas Horizontal Therapy, Frequency Specific Microcurrent, Pro-neurolight Therapy (Low-Level Light Therapy). These modalities are safe, non-invasive, and are some of the most advanced alternative treatments available.
State of the Art Bracing
In many cases of chronic joint pain, we recommend specific medical braces that offer pain relief and provide help with the management of ongoing pain. The braces we recommend at our Roanoke, Virginia practice are designed to help decompress the spine, stabilize the spine, and slow down degenerative damage.
