Natural therapies are helpful for treating many types of Sports Injuries and Pain Conditions, including:

  • Acute/chronic neck & back pain
  • Repetitive strain injuries (tendonitis, bursitis)
  • Disc problems
  • Joint injuries
  • Menstrual pain

  • Headaches/migraines
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Sprains and strains
  • Arthritis
  • Lifestyle Counseling
  • Digestive pain
  • Nerve entrapment syndromes (carpal tunnel, thoracic outlet syndrome, etc.)
  • TMJ dysfunction

Among the therapies that we use to treat Sports Injuries and Pain Conditions are:

Acupuncture:
The natural remedy most famous for treating pain, acupuncture is the oldest continually-practiced medical system known to man. It not only relieves pain symptoms but address the underlying cause as well. It works by activating the body’s own healing process through the application of very fine needles, heat or gentle pressure at specific points on the body. Treatments are generally painless and very relaxing.

Therapeutic magnets:
A needle-less substitute to acupuncture therapy. The magnets that we use are the size of small tablets and are held onto the skin with adhesive circles approximately one inch in diameter. Therapeutic magnets are especially helpful for treating injuries, disc problems and arthritis pain.

Nutrition:
In some instances, proper nutrition can decrease chronic pain by as much as 75%. Proper diet can decrease inflammation and speed healing and is a very powerful tool for reducing pain. Food sensitivities can also contribute to pain and are the number one cause of migraine headaches and a major contributing factor to osteoarthritis pain. Assessment for food allergies can lead to a significant decrease in pain for certain conditions.

Supplements:
Many supplements, including homeopathy, nutritional supplements and Chinese and Western herbal medicine have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving qualities. In addition there are numerous supplements that can be helpful in improving the underlying cause of many pain conditions, including migraines, arthritis, menstrual pain and digestive pain.
