Biofeedback and Acupuncture
Biofeedback: A Noninvasive, Effective Pain Management Treatment
Biofeedback is a noninvasive technique involving electrical sensors that provide feedback about the body’s functions, such as heart rate, temperature, sweating, and blood pressure. Individuals can use this information to make subtle changes in their body functions, thereby improving their overall health. Biofeedback can teach you to relax certain muscles, for example, in order to reduce chronic pain related to stress or gastrointestinal issues. Biofeedback can be an essential component of treating abdominal pain from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), constipation, and several other conditions.
Acupuncture: An Ancient, Noninvasive Pain Management Treatment
An ancient healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture is a noninvasive technique that can be effective at treating pain. Acupuncture involves stimulating specific points on the body with extremely fine, sterile needles to promote the natural healing process. Acupuncture can be a beneficial component of treatment for shoulder, arm, and wrist pain conditions such as bursitis, arthritis, tennis elbow, and carpal tunnel syndrome. Acupuncture can also be a beneficial component of treatment for back pain linked to arthritis and post-surgery pain, as well as a treatment for abdominal pain conditions ranging from gastroenteritis to ulcerative colitis.
