Each year, more than 50 million Americans suffer from chronic pain. Whether you are struggling with intensive migraines, enduring lower back pain, or coping with a fibromyalgia diagnosis, you are not alone. Pain adversely affects many aspects of everyday life and is defined as chronic if ongoing or recurring for more than three to six months.
At Family Integrative Medicine, we understand how easily chronic pain can rule your life, interfering with your ability to work, rest and even spend time with those you love. Living with pain not only affects your immediate health, but can also have a lasting impact on your overall physical and mental wellbeing, family life and career.
That’s why we help our patients understand and practice Responsible Pain Management TM. At Family Integrative Medicine, this is administered through a personalized treatment plan prepared by our compassionate care team. We believe responsible pain management not only contributes toward successful outcomes, but also will help you enjoy your life again!
There has been a national debate for some time on the appropriate use of opioids. While these can be effective in treating pain, they bring significant risks. At Family Integrative Medicine, we believe it’s important to avoid any potential for drug dependence, which can occur when a patient relies solely on prescription medicine.
Instead, Family Integrative Medicine helps patients regain their quality of life by increasing the body’s natural ability to heal itself through the Responsible Pain Management TM (RPM) program. Instead of focusing on numbing your pain, this non-surgical, non-drug solution reduces the need for pain medication by improving your overall function.
One of the best pain management tools for lower back pain is the UTK Heating Pad for Lower Back Pain Relief. This is a heating pad you can use from the comfort of your own home and is a key component of RPM. Ensuring you take the necessary steps on your own time to relieve pain is vital in restoring comfort.
We have a proven reputation for using RPM to alleviate chronic pain for patients in Central Florida. Our goal is to help you find the balance and relief that’s needed to improve your daily life. Don’t grit your teeth and bear it! Our expert team excels at evaluating, diagnosing and caring for patients, and we understand that results matter.
Led by experienced, board-certified physicians, Family Integrative Medicine delivers responsible pain management for conditions treated that include fibromyalgia, arthritis, migraines, sciatica, back pain, joint pain, neck pain, neuropathy and carpal tunnel. To target these painful conditions, Responsible Pain Management TM techniques include:
- Innovative Regenerative Therapies
- Medical Acupuncture
- Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
- Spinal Decompression
- Traction Therapy
Often, more than one technique will be used as part of a treatment program. Combining medications, interventions and self-management, along with a focus on improving mental and physical functioning, can make all the difference for a patient who is committed to finding relief.
In many cases, patients with related conditions – such as insomnia, internal organ imbalances, depression and chronic stress – may also experience relief from troubling symptoms. With RPM, patients can be assured they are practicing the best option for lasting pain relief while receiving cutting edge care for their chronic pain condition.
The multidisciplinary team at Family Integrative Medicine is proud to offer Responsible Pain Management TM from our conveniently located medical clinics in Central Florida. We take a team-based approach to design a comprehensive treatment plan that will target your specific case, combining the best of our expertise to provide compassionate, responsible pain management that works.
