Medical pain management has been criticized in recent years for its reliance on powerful and addictive narcotics to treat pain, but these drugs aren’t the only solutions for pain relief. At Atlanta Medical Clinic, we take a comprehensive approach to serious pain management. By considering the whole person–and not just the point of pain–as well as the underlying causes of pain, we’re able to recommend more natural yet reliable methods of pain relief that complement patients’ lives and improve quality of life.
Pain Pills and Their Side Effects
For decades, many doctors simply wrote prescriptions for pain pills for patients who suffered from various forms of pain like neuropathy pain. But the ease with which drug treatment was prescribed has not been easy for many individuals. Pain pills come with a wide range of side effects such as drowsiness, weight gain, nausea, and other side effects that can impede a person’s overall well-being. If you’re looking for a more natural approach to pain treatment that minimizes the use of pain medications, Atlanta Medical Clinic can help.
Comprehensive Pain Treatment
The clinicians at Atlanta Medical Clinic take a more comprehensive approach to pain management and strive to rely on natural methods for helping patients find relief. While powerful pain medications like prescription opioids can be effective for treating short-term pain, they’re not as effective for treating pain in the long term. That’s because people develop a tolerance to these drugs and are at risk for developing an addiction to them.
Our doctors get to the bottom of what’s causing the individual’s pain. We perform diagnostic studies to determine the source of each patient’s pain so we can find the ideal solution for treating it. Once we find the cause, we can treat the cause–and effectively stop pain from impeding patients’ lives.
Treating the Roots of Pain
Pain is the way our bodies tell us that something is wrong. Treating pain often just masks what’s wrong. Although pain-focused treatments can provide relief, they don’t target the pain’s source. At Atlanta Medical Clinic, we look for ways to uncover the root of the problem so we can attempt to fix what’s causing each person’s pain. Sometimes pain is not completely solvable because the root of the problem can’t be fixed, but we can find natural and effective solutions for improving the problem and reducing the pain with our innovative methods.
