What is the osteopathic manipulative treatment for pain?
As an osteopathic physician, Dr. Zaydman uses a hands-on technique to address your pain. The manipulations evaluate the origins of your discomfort and treat it at the source.
The therapy involves using gentle pressure, resistance, and stretches to relieve your pain, improve mobility, and promote healing. The manipulations are largely applied to joints and muscles. Occasionally, Dr. Zaydman prescribes at-home rehabilitation exercises, too, that involve stretching and strength building.
What injection therapies help with pain management?
The doctors at Valley Medical and Wellness recommend a variety of injection therapies, depending on your pain symptoms and origins. These include:
Regenerative injection therapy
The goal of regenerative injection therapy is to activate your body’s own healing abilities to resolve joint, tendon, muscle, ligament, and cartilage pain. The doctors inject natural, safe substances at the site of your pain. The injections cause mild inflammation, which makes your body send in healing compounds and cells to regenerate healthy tissue and heal damage. Prolotherapy and platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy are two of the revolutionary regenerative therapy injections offered.
Biopuncture is a holistic medicine technique that aims to stimulate your immune system and reduce pain, swelling, and inflammation. The doctors inject plant and mineral compounds that have homeopathic benefits just below your skin at points of pain or classic acupuncture sites. Discomfort during biopuncture is minimal because the doctors use exceptionally fine needles.
Viscosupplementation treats osteoarthritis of the knees. Osteoarthritis is characterized by a breakdown of cartilage that cushions the space between bones at the joints. Usually, osteoarthritis occurs due to natural aging and wear and tear. Viscosupplementation restores hyaluronic acid to your joints, supplying lubrication for smooth movement between bones.
How does acupuncture help with pain management?
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medicine technique that alleviates various physical, psychological, and emotional conditions. Acupuncture uses fine needles, as well as heat and pressure, to stimulate specific energy meridians and restore health, reduce pain, and combat addiction.
Research supports the use of acupuncture to alleviate pain as the procedure stimulates your body’s natural endorphins.
