Pain Management


Pain can affect every part of our lives. Pain can lead to fatigue, emotional distress and many other challenges in addition to the physical discomfort. The causes of pain can vary widely, and although most people with chronic pain share much in common, every person living with pain has their own story. At the Center, our emphasis is on resolving the source of the pain, not merely masking or covering it up.

Taking Charge of Pain

The strategy used to help relieve chronic pain should be as individual as the person, and must be flexible as well as effective to achieve success. Surgery and drug therapy can be very important, but represent only a small portion of the spectrum of care available to relieve pain.

The Right Solution for You

For over ten years, we at the Center have been providing natural relief from pain, both acute and chronic. From relieving migraines and menstrual pains, to eliminating the need for carpal tunnel surgery to the management of chronic back pain and much more, we have found what works for our patients.

Depending on your needs, a single practitioner may be your best choice. For others, a combination of massage and acupuncture, or perhaps craniosacral therapy and scenar may work best.

Our practitioners have worked together for years, and understand best how to combine their talents to provide relief for our clients.

Some of the pain patterns we see regularly at the Center include:

  • Carpal Tunnel
  • Back and Hip Pain
  • Sciatica
  • Migraine
  • Neck Pain
  • TMJ Pain
  • Sinus Problems
  • Arthritis
  • Bursitis
  • Sports Injury
  • Tendinitis/Tendinosis
  • Joint Pain
  • Digestive Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Neuralgia
  • Menstrual Pain
  • Shoulder Pain and Frozen Shoulder
  • Tennis and Golf Elbow
  • Pain from Cancer/Chemotherapy
  • Lyme Disease Pain

Getting to the Roots of Pain

Did you know that what you’re eating may be affecting your pain? Are you aware that simple lifestyle changes exist that can help eliminate pain, and keep it from returning?

Our physicians, nurses and other providers take the time to learn about your life, pain, medical history and lifestyle to determine what the root cause or causes of your pain really are. Healing begins with listening. Once we have gotten to know you, your provider will help walk you through, and educate you about all the different options for integrative pain management, and which ones will be best for you.

Our integrative solutions for pain include the following:
