Pain Management Treatments
To treat your pain, Synergy Health 360 may employ any number of management tools. Most often, he treats pain with:
Synergy Health 360 uses non-opiate IV infusions to treat various types of chronic pain. You may respond well to this if you suffer from conditions such as fibromyalgia, phantom limb pain, spinal cord injury pain, or central pain related to stroke.
Trigger point therapy
Trigger point therapy relieves pain by targeting trigger points, which are points in your skeletal muscle that cause pain when compressed. During trigger therapy, Synergy Health 360 releases compressed trigger points. This therapy is most successful for musculoskeletal pain, including headaches.
Sciatica pain, which is pain that occurs when you pinch or compress your sciatic nerve, is another frequent musculoskeletal complaint.
Another way to manage pain is through rehabilitation or physical therapy. Through guided exercises, you can decrease pain, improve mobility, and generally improve your quality of life. Physical rehabilitation is especially useful after an injury, stroke, or operation.
