Natural Pain Management

Are you one of the millions of people suffering with chronic pain in your hips, back or neck? Whatever part of your body hurts, chances are you’d give anything to just make the pain to stop. Because pain symptoms vary from person to person an alternative pain management approach by holistic medical doctors is the best course of treatment. There are a myriad causes of pain, but all pain syndromes have a common denominator, that of a disturbance in the tissue biochemistry of the affected regions. Therefore, focusing on metabolically directed treatment of your pain, Michael Rothman MD can customize a holistic pain management program that can help ease your suffering.

About Holistic Pain Management

Holistic pain management is an integrated approach to reducing the structural, biochemical and energetic imbalances that cause your pain in the first place. Natural pain management include individualized diets to reduce inflammation, metabolically directed supplements and bioidentical hormones to balance body chemistry, identification and elimination of environmental and food toxins to reduce abnormal immune system stimulation. UV light therapy can enhance normal levels of endorphins through the stimulation of the proopio-melanocortin receptors thus reducing the perception of pain. Adjunctive holistic therapies also include chiropractic, massage, physical therapy, relaxation techniques, stretching and acupuncture. Medications can be carefully chosen, making sure to respect your individual body chemistry, so as to maximize efficacy and minimize untoward side effects. These alternative pain management techniques put you in control of your own health.

At Michael Rothman MD, we will help you understand why symptomatic treatment doesn’t work and why conventional medicine’s standard of naming and blaming gets you nowhere. With our natural pain management approach, we “find the cause and fix the cause” – the only rational approach to giving you a better quality of life moving forward. The health of your body at the biochemical level is a balancing act involving many metabolic pathways communicating and interacting with each other within the cells of our organs and tissues – in other words, metabolic balance. Because numerous seemingly unrelated symptoms that chronically plague you are often the result of metabolic imbalance, we focus on metabolic treatment for pain by taking into account the function of all your body’s systems.

Types of Pain:

Bio Chemical Pain

Body pain can be affected by such bio chemical factors as your body’s acid/alkaline balance. Tissue congestion from the buildup of acid waste products can lead to reduced oxygen to the cells in conjunction with reduced elimination of carbon dioxide and other metabolic wastes. On the other hand excessive oxidative stress can lead to tissue destruction, elevated alkalinity and lack of carbon dioxide. Water, air pollution, poor quality diet and stress in all forms (including Edibolic stress) all challenge your body’s ability to manage its acid/alkaline balance. Depending on the degree to which your pain is caused by these bio chemical factors, you’ll experience a reduction in your pain and an improvement in your overall health and quality of life by making changes in these areas. Dr. Michael Rothman specializes in the treatment of bio chemical pain by using a metabolically directed functional medicine approach, therefore designing an alternative pain management program just for you.

Structural Pain

Structural pain is the general term that refers to any type of pain caused by placing abnormal stress and strain on muscles and bones of the body often affecting the vertebral column. Typically, structural pain results from bad habits, such as poor posture, poorly-designed seating and incorrect bending and lifting motions. If structural pain is suspected, you will be referred to a practitioner that specializes in structural modalities (chiropractic, physical therapy).

Nerve Pain

Nerve pain (called neuropathic pain), is one of the more difficult and uncomfortable types of pain. Whether the pain comes from diabetes, shingles, fibromyalgia, chemotherapy, or a host of other causes, this searing, burning, electric shock kind of pain can leave you miserable. Unfortunately, most physicians are still not trained in treating nerve pain, and only treat it with anti-inflammatory medications. At its root, nerve pain is a type of biochemical pain and is amendable to a metabolically directed functional medicine approach. Using alternative pain management treatments, Michael Rothman MD finds the cause of your nerve pain rather than just treating the symptoms.

Metabolic Pain

A multitude of seemingly unrelated symptoms like pain and illness can be the result of metabolic imbalances in our body systems. Some of these systems include the autonomic nervous system, acid-base balance, anabolic-catabolic balance, glycemic control, immune system balance, bowel flora balance and electrolyte balance. These are referred to as homeostatic control mechanisms. Methods for objectively measuring these balance systems are referred to as metabolically directed functional testing systems. Michael Rothman MD specializes in the metabolic treatment of chronic pain using a full-body approach.
