Complementary and Alternative Therapies
If you suffer from chronic pain, you may want to investigate complementary and alternative therapies. At Gwinnett Medical Center, we believe in integrative health care, and feel there are many treatments that have reasonable scientific literature supporting their value.
For more information on alternative medicine, explore the following sites:
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) published consensus statements on the value of acupuncture and relaxation/behavioral techniques in the treatment of chronic pain and insomnia.
The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine at the NIH offers a wealth of general information. Please note that anytime you are considering exploring an alternative medicine approach to your chronic pain problem, please take time to discuss it with your pain management physician at the clinic.
The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute offers information on proper nutrition and exercise, along with advice on how to treat insomnia, obesity and many other medical problems.
