Have you or a loved one ever contemplated the surgical vs non-surgical route for pain relief or treatment of an injury? If so, you’re not alone. Each year, millions of Americans make the decision to either opt for surgery or take a more holistic approach and go the non-surgical path. Non-surgical treatments are often the preferred option as they provide a less invasive approach compared to surgery and may have fewer risks and side effects. Also, non-surgical treatments offer more personalized solutions, as they are tailored to suit your individual needs. This means that you can receive targeted care that is right for you. Holistic treatments can also be modified or adjusted, if necessary, which allows you to receive the best possible care. In this article, we look at the benefits of non-surgical treatments compared to surgery to help you make an informed decision about which treatment is best for you.

Non-Surgical Treatments are Less Painful than Surgery

While surgery might seem like the easier route, it often comes with significant pain and discomfort. To alleviate that pain, patients are oftentimes prescribed addictive medication.

Non-surgical treatments offer a much less intrusive alternative, allowing patients to enjoy relief from their symptoms without having to endure a painful procedure and recovery. Some of these non-surgical treatments include:

  • Enriched Plasma Therapy
  • Red Light Therapy
  • Nutritional IV Therapy
  • Ozone Therapy
  • Medical Acupuncture
  • Rehabilitation Therapy
  • Non-Surgical Decompression Therapy
  • Chiropractic Care 
Non-surgical treatments have been known to alleviate everything from minor to severe injuries and chronic ailments. Our bodies have an incredible ability to naturally heal themselves. The treatments at Family Integrative Medicine expedite the healing process while strengthening the surrounding area in a much more comfortable manner than surgical procedures.

Reduced Risk of Complications

Non-surgical treatments also provide a reduced possibility of complications due to their less invasive nature. This makes it an attractive option for those who are looking to reduce their chances of experiencing serious medical issues associated with surgery. Surgical procedures can often carry a host of risks, including infection, excessive bleeding, nerve damage, and more. Holistic treatments often have fewer side effects than traditional surgery as well and can be performed on an outpatient basis so that patients can avoid hospital stays. Although surgery is performed successfully most of the time, patients can be left with minor to severe underlying issues that can impact both short and long-term health. It’s essential to speak with your medical provider to determine if non-surgical treatments are what’s best for your unique condition.

Less Recovery Time is Needed for Non-Surgical Treatments

One appealing factor for a more holistic approach is that the patients have more options for treating their ailments and can have more control over the healing process. As we previously stated, our non-surgical treatments are specifically designed to treat your condition. The thought of having more control over your body is extremely enticing to some people, and that’s exactly what you get with non-surgical treatments at Family Integrative Medicine. While surgery is invasive and can take weeks or even months for a patient to fully recover from, non-surgical treatments are much less invasive and oftentimes require less recovery time. The recovery time depends on the specific condition and patient. But generally speaking, non-surgical treatments provide a much shorter recovery.

A Cost-Effective Option

The cost of medical treatments can be overwhelming for many patients and their families. Fortunately, there are non-surgical treatments that can provide the same, or even better results than surgery. All too often, you have to sacrifice quality to attain a more cost-effective outcome. With Family Integrative Medicine’s non-surgical treatments, this is not the case. The lower cost is associated with the treatments being an out-patient procedure, low-risk treatments, and shorter recovery times.

Comforts of Home

One of the many fantastic benefits of receiving non-surgical treatments is that it’s considered an out-patient procedure. What does this mean? This means instead of being admitted to a hospital, like you would when you undergo surgery, you live in the comfort of your home. This might not seem like a big deal to some people, but living in the comfort of your own home plays a major role in your mental health and well-being. Maintaining a positive outlook at your journey ahead can enhance motivation and expedite your recovery time. Not to mention, the loved ones around you will enjoy your company if you have a positive mindset. A male patient and his doctor are doing exercises to strengthen his shoulders.

Are Ozone Therapy Treatments Considered Non-Surgical?

Ozone therapy treatments have gained popularity due to the potential health benefits of ozone therapy. Despite being a non-surgical approach, this treatment is known for its ability to stimulate the immune system, improve blood circulation, and provide pain relief. Many individuals seek ozone therapy as an alternative to surgical procedures, emphasizing its non-invasive nature.
