A Drug-Free Approach To Pain

drug-free approach

Like it or not, pain is a part of everyone’s life. While pain serves a positive purpose in that it signals to our body that something is wrong, it is not enjoyable. If for example, you touch a hot surface, it tells you to pull your hand away, so you do and the pain goes away. Pain becomes an issue when it is consistent or chronic. When the pain begins to interfere with your sleep, your work, or the enjoyment of your day-to-day life it becomes something you need to deal with. Your instinct may at that point, to do whatever it takes to make it stop. Unfortunately for many, the go-to method for relief is to pop a pill. Whether it be just taking a few ibuprofen or turning to a doctor who prescribes something stronger, taking drugs is not the answer.

Pills only mask the pain. They don’t get to the root of the pain, and they interfere with your body’s natural ability to heal.

At MHWC we look to help our patients achieve Better Health Naturally. Without drugs. We look to address what is causing your pain rather than masking the symptoms. We tend to look at the body as a whole and then do our best to identify the root of the problem. From there, we come up with a treatment plan that will help you feel less pain and get you moving toward better health! We utilize a variety of methods to achieve this goal. In today’s blog we are going to talk about the main two, Chiropractic Care and SoftWave Therapy.

Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic Care has proven to be a highly effective, drug-free pain treatment option. When the communication between your brain and other parts of your body is interrupted, it can cause pain. Muscles can spasm, spinal bones can lock up, and nerves can be choked. This is called a vertebral subluxation complex and it is often the underlying (root) cause of a wide variety of health problems including back pain, allergies, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, pinched nerves, and sciatica to name a few. Chiropractic adjustments can reduce vertebral subluxation complexes, allowing the body to heal itself as well as relieve pain.

SoftWave Therapy

SoftWave Therapy is a drug-free, effective approach to healing the human body using acoustic waves to stimulate your body’s natural processes for self-repair. Utilizing shockwaves that travel from the applicator into the affected area, SoftWave treatments stimulate a healing response at the cell level. Your body begins to produce more blood vessels, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. While the healing process itself takes place over a 10 – 12 week period, many patients have shared that they feel RELIEF FROM PAIN right away.

SoftWave Is Used To Treat The Following Conditions:

  • Knee Pain
  • Shoulder Pain
  • Back Pain
