Hi, I’m Dr. Alan Greenberg. Since I started practicing homeopathy in 1991, I’ve seen a lot of patients unable to find relief for conventional chronic pain treatment in Las Vegas. For many of them, homeopathy proved to be a more effective, lasting alternative to traditional pain treatments.
What is Chronic Pain?
Chronic pain, also known as persistent pain, is a condition that affects about 50 million Americans. Pain is classified as chronic if it lasts from three to six months and beyond. This type of long-term pain has been proven to have devastating effects on a person’s physical well-being, mental health, and quality of life.
While pain medication may relieve chronic pain for a while, it typically focuses on the symptoms and not its root. Therefore, the pain simply returns over and over, sometimes worse than before.
Naturally, what we want is to cure chronic pain permanently. To do this, homeopathy goes beyond managing the symptoms and straight to the real cause of the pain. Only by understanding the individual as a whole can we begin to treat chronic pain and relieve its symptoms for good.
Symptoms of Chronic Pain
Chronic pain symptoms can range from mild to severe, and can come and go or last continuously. As such, some people may not be aware that they have it. The pain may feel like:
- Dull ache
Sometimes, pain may just be one symptom of chronic pain. You may also experience:
- Lack of energy
- Lack of appetite
- Lack of motivation and drive
- Memory and cognitive issues
- Sleeping problems
- Chronic fatigue
Since a wide range of diseases and conditions also exhibit these chronic pain symptoms, it’s crucial to look at what’s happening behind the scenes. Homeopathic chronic pain treatment in Las Vegas not only identifies the symptoms but seeks the context in which they occur.
Causes of Chronic Pain
For most people, chronic pain begins with a health condition or an injury. Some also develop chronic pain from repetitive behaviors done without taking precaution, eventually damaging the body. A few leading causes of chronic pain are:
- Back problems
- Nerve damage
- Past surgeries or injuries
- Irritable bowel
- Consistent high levels of stress
- Depression and anxiety
- Occupational issues
As you can see, physical triggers are not the only cause of chronic pain. Lifestyle issues, emotional problems, and mental health can also trigger chronic pain and make it worse. That’s why as an anxiety doctor in Las Vegas, I don’t just look at the pain, but as the person as a whole.
During our consultation, we will explore both your main symptoms and concomitant symptoms to individualize the pain. If you suffer from back pain, for instance, I won’t just look for problems with your back and spine —we will discuss your routine, mood changes that precede the pain, and more.
Only after painting the big picture will I make a diagnosis and create an individualized homeopathic plan for you.
Homeopathic Treatment Options for Chronic Pain
There are numerous homeopathic methods to treat chronic pain, but the exact combination is always unique to each patient. Here are some common homeopathic pain remedies your personalized treatment plan may include:
- Hypericum – also known as St. John’s Wort, it’s an effective treatment for shooting pain commonly associated with nerve damage
- Arnica – an ancient herbal remedy that accelerates wound healing, relieves aching muscles, and helps heal sprains and bruises
- Ledum – for chronic joint pain, Ledum can ease cold joints, inflammation, and pain that intensified with motion
- Bryonia Alba – typically used for joint pain that feels like sticking, cutting, or mimics a tearing sensation when you move
- Guaiacum – highly-recommended for stiff, swollen, and achy joints that get worse under pressure, usually around the neck and head area
Aside from being all-natural and safe, these homeopathic pain treatment options are also more affordable than traditional pain medicine. They are cheaper to produce because their pure form is not patentable, making them a cheaper alternative for patients as well.
