A Unique Combination:
Pain is one of the most common reasons for patients to visit their doctor each year. Conventional medicine, while brilliant in emergency situations is often lacking when it comes to the treatment of chronic pain conditions. The admirable goal of conventional therapy is to relieve pain and alleviate symptoms but the underlying causes of pain are often overlooked. As a result, relief is often only partial or temporary. Osteopathic Medicine, Neural Therapy and Physiological Regulating Medicine are three methods that aim to treat the underlying imbalances that result in pain, illness or disease. Each of these methods, when used individually, works well for a wide range of ailments including pain. However, when used in combination these methods offer one of the safest and most effective treatments available for many conditions including those that were previously thought to be untreatable.
A doctor of Osteopathy is a fully licensed physician whose training includes all aspects of medicine and surgery. Most osteopathic physicians today are either family doctors or specialist (such as surgeons, pediatricians, gynecologists, neurologists…). Some however focus on a more traditional practice which allows them to diagnose and treat their patients with a more hands-on approach. The goal of traditional osteopathy is simply to assist the body in healing itself. This is done through various manual techniques that address the body’s structure thereby improving the body’s ability to function. As normal function is restored, symptoms resolve.
Neural therapy is based on the theory that any kind of trauma can produce “interference fields”. These are long standing electrical imbalances in the cells of various tissues throughout the body which can result in illness, chronic pain or other symptoms. After much research it was discovered that local anesthetics of the “caine” family could be used to rapidly correct these imbalances. Neural therapy involves the injection of tiny amounts of procaine (like Novocain, the numbing medicine commonly used in dental offices) into very specific sites on the body as a means of correcting these “interference fields”. Neural therapy can often resolve pain or other illness very rapidly with long lasting or permanent results.
Physiological Regulating Medicine
Physiological regulating medicine (PMR) is an approach that combines conventional medicine with classical homeopathy. The goal of this therapy is to restore normal physiology with the use of various compounds (such as hormones, anti-inflammatory cells, herbs, homeopathic remedies) that are combined in homeopathic dilutions. This method focuses on balancing all systems within the body and treating the source of illness, not just the symptoms. These oral remedies offer both immediate relief and long term resolution of many conditions. PMR also includes the use of injectable remedies that are used specifically for the treatment of chronic pain.
