According to the Centers for Disease Control, as many as 20% of American adults suffer from chronic pain. Whether pain stems from a preexisting condition or a sudden injury, it can negatively impact one’s quality of life. This makes it imperative to properly diagnose the source of the pain before treating it efficiently and effectively. Unfortunately, many doctors merely treat pain with prescription drugs and surgery. Drugs can mask symptoms but come with many risks. On the other hand, surgeries can repair injuries but are not permanent and can take a toll on the body. The providers at Austin Preferred use an integrated approach to create personalized treatment plans for each patient. They strive to relieve pain by restoring health and function to the body, rather than recommending prescription drugs or surgery. It is for this reason that we have become a popular choice for natural pain relief in Austin.
Chronic pain most commonly stems from degenerative conditions, repetitive stress injuries, acute injuries, or diseases. Because some conditions are more complex than others, a quick fix is not always the best solution. Many conditions require a long-term approach aimed at restoring function to the body and strengthening them to decrease the likelihood of future recurrences. Our providers have helped patients overcome chronic pain related to many common conditions, including (but not limited to):
Because each condition is different, we are able to cure some more quickly than others. The condition, body part affected, and the patient’s response to holistic chronic pain treatment are all important factors in this regard. While the conditions above are among the most common our providers treat, it is not comprehensive in that regard.
The providers at Austin Preferred offer a wide array of services to patients suffering from pain. We feel this is imperative to our philosophy of creating personalized treatment plans unique to each patient’s individual needs. Some modalities are more effective than others for certain conditions, which is why we have each new patient in for an initial evaluation before recommending the best options. However, the one thing each of these modalities has in common is that they can relieve pain therapeutically. With that said, our holistic pain relief treatment plans in Austin typically include some combination of:
Health insurance covers some of these options, while others are only available at the self-pay rate. Our providers are typically willing to accommodate patients with specific requests, which they can then incorporate into care plans. Moreover, we also offer free consultations for some of the services mentioned here.
