When we are in pain we often turn to over-the-counter medicines. They are effective for the moment but can have long-term side effects. Also, popping a pill will help eliminate the symptom but not the root cause, making you continually dependent on them to cover up the systems. At the Wellness Center of Plymouth, our focus is to help people find the root cause and eliminate pain with natural solutions. Check out how our center can help you live a better, pain-free life.
A Hands-On Approach to Pain Relief
Chiropractic Care and Massage are the two leading common natural pain relief solutions. Chiropractic adjustments help to realign your spine, relieve pinched nerves, and restore joint mobility. Massage helps relax painful muscles, tendons, and joints as well as relieving stress and anxiety. It can increase blood flow to sore, stiff joints and muscles; it speeds up the flow of oxytocin, a hormone that relaxes and muscles and promotes the feeling of calmness; it triggers the release of natural pain killers called opioids in the brain.
Using the Latest Technology for Pain Relief
We use cutting-edge pain relief technologies that are used by professional athletes all around the globe. These technologies help reduce pain and inflammation and improve cell function. These therapies are drug-free and use your body’s natural defenses to heal itself.
- Laser Therapy – light is used to relieve pain and inflammation as it speeds up healing.
- Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy – weak electromagnetic fields are used to stimulate our damaged cells to function as they should.
- Neuro Rehab (ARP) Therapy – uses low-voltage electrical current to stimulate the nervous system to improve the connection of the brain, spinal cord, and muscles for rapid recovery and improved function.
Managing Stress to Relieve Pain
Stress and its role in causing pain isn’t fully clear, but studies have shown that stress and negative emotions can cause increased inflammation and a condition called hyperalgesia, increased sensation of pain. A newer technology, Brain Tapping, uses sounds to reboot your brain to a healthy, balanced state of relaxation. It reduces the brain waves that trigger tension while increasing brain waves that counteract stress. We also offer a range of stress-reducing essential oils from doTerra, with proprietary blends that can be used to calm anxiety and promote better sleep.
Pain Relief with Supplements
Pain can often be relieved with supplements as some herbs already have natural pain-killing properties. We offer a wide selection of products from Metagenics, with our popular pain-relieving supplements being the following: Myocalm (helps relax muscles), Kaprex (joint comfort), SPM Active (increased the production of SPMs to help with damaged tissue), Mag Glycinate (supports muscle relaxation and nervous system health), and more!
