Therapies allow for pain management without medication dependency. Both chronic and acute pain can be well managed with a variety of therapies. Finding the individual therapy or even a combination of therapies that work for you can take some trial and experimenting. Documenting your experiences can help you to track the benefits and progress as you begin to find relief.

What options are available?

There is a therapy for everyone. If you prefer hands-on treatments, acupuncture, massage or osteopathy might be for you. If you prefer to use a machine in the comfort of you own home or even at work, electromagnetism or a TENS machine would be a good fit. If you prefer a more introspective therapy, hypnotherapy, or music therapy might suit you. In many cases, a combination of these varying therapies can help you find relief.
