Pain Management Q & A

What should I know about chronic pain?

When you feel pain, it’s your body’s way of telling you that something is wrong. In most cases, when the underlying issue resolves, the pain goes away. However, in some people, the pain remains.

Pain that doesn’t go away after the initial issue should’ve resolved is referred to as chronic pain, which can last for months or years and can significantly impact your physical, emotional, and mental health. Finding treatments to relieve your pain can be as emotionally draining as the pain itself.

Common causes of chronic pain include:

  • Arthritis
  • Muscle strains
  • Back and neck pain
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Degenerative conditions
  • Nerve damage
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Repetitive stress injuries

The team at New Beginnings Health Care offers many safe and effective treatment options to help relieve your chronic pain.

What treatments can help relieve my chronic pain?

New Beginnings Health Care is the most progressive integrative medical center in the San Diego area and offers many alternative treatments to manage chronic pain. Some of the treatments include:

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) therapy

PRP therapy and MSCs contain a concentrated amount of your body’s natural healing properties. Your doctor takes cells from your own blood and injects them directly into the pain area. These cells contain proteins that accelerate the healing of your injured tissues to relieve the underlying source of your pain.

Stem cell therapy

Your body’s stem cells have the potential to develop into specialized cells to regenerate tissue. When injected directly into injured or diseased tissue, the stem cells promote healing and the regeneration of healthy tissue. Stem cell therapy may be recommended if you have osteoarthritis.

Nutritional therapy

Good nutrition is the cornerstone of wellness. The in-house nutritionist at New Beginnings Health Care provides customized nutrition plans that may help reduce inflammation and pain, as well as promote a healthy weight to decrease stress on your body.

BioMat therapy

BioMat therapy is a form of light therapy that improves circulation to the diseased tissue. The infrared rays penetrate deep into the joint and also help promote overall relaxation.

Ozone therapy

Ozone is a charged form of oxygen that can penetrate your cells faster to help rejuvenate and heal the cells to provide pain relief.

Massage therapy

Massage therapy is an excellent way to alleviate pain, as well as reduce stress and manage the symptoms of anxiety and depression. It also improves sleep, energy, and concentration. It helps relieve pain by helping your body release endorphins that relieve pain from migraines, muscle strains, and poor circulation and oxygenation.

Reiki healing

Reiki is a Japanese technique aimed at treating the whole person, including the body, emotions, mind, and spirit. It creates many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and well-being, as it helps reduce stress and promote healing.

For pain relief, you may benefit from more than one technique.
