Holistic Healing

What is holistic healing?

Holistic healing, or holistic medicine, involves treatments that address you as a whole person – including your mind, body, and spirit. It integrates conventional and alternative medicine to treat or prevent disease and promote optimal health and wellness.

Holistic healing focuses on the underlying cause of a disease versus simply treating disease symptoms. Practicing medicine this way aids in disease prevention and preventive pain management, rather than prescribing medications to manage pain.

What are the benefits of holistic healing?

Holistic healing helps you avoid addictive pain medication and invasive or risky medical procedures. 

Your mind and body contain natural healing capabilities, and simple lifestyle changes may prevent or manage diseases and pain without further treatment. Natural remedies are the treatment of choice at Pain Doctor NY.

What are some holistic treatments?

After reviewing your medical history and determining the cause of your illness, disease, pain, or injury, your provider discusses holistic treatment options with you. They might recommend:

Dietary changes

Sometimes the cause of inflammation and pain associated with it has to do with what you’re eating. Making simple changes, such as eating whole foods versus processed foods, taking dietary supplements, and maintaining a healthy weight often reduces disease symptoms.

Physical therapy

Physical therapy involves targeted stretching and strengthening exercises that help your body recover from an injury quickly and reduce pain associated with it.

Chiropractic adjustments

Chiropractic adjustments enhance healing after an injury, promote better posture, ease pain-causing tension, and correct a misaligned spine to ease discomfort.

Other natural remedies

Other natural remedies your doctor might recommend include massage, acupuncture, yoga, tai chi, meditation, getting more sleep, and regular resistance or aerobic exercise.
