What can be causing my pain?
There are various underlying factors that contribute to chronic pain and delayed healing, including:
- Uncontrolled inflammation
- Tissue degeneration
- Structural imbalances (caused by injuries, repetitive strain)
- Elevated acids (ie. uric acid)
- Vitamin D deficiency
The conventional treatment of pain conditions typically includes a variety of medications, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), antidepressants, opiates, steroid injections, and may include surgery. However, some of these medications may be have short- or long-term side effects.
How do Naturopathic Doctors treat pain?
