Conservative Pain Management
in Manasquan, NJ
Conservative management is an approach to treating joint and spine pain and painful conditions utilizing non-surgical treatment options such as physical therapy, medication and injections.
In the context of treating pain, “conservative” treatment is not the opposite of aggressive treatment and in fact, many conservative treatment plans are considered very aggressive as well as effective. Many painful conditions can be treated through conservative care and a combination of several conservative treatments is often recommended to alleviate pain and return function to normal.
Alternative Medicine is also employed and is considered to be conservative in nature.
Chiropractic treatment, herbal medicine, biofeedback, homeopathy, and acupuncture can be successfully employed which help obtain pain relief while eliminating the need for the use of drugs.
The philosophy of alternative medicine usually emphasizes the promotion of wellness, healing and prevention through self-awareness of the mind and body, as well as exercise, nutrition and other forms of self-care.
