Chronic low back pain affects 100 million Americans. That number increases dramatically when you include shoulder, knee, and hip pain. Unfortunately, the options provided to most patients is narcotic medications to deal with their chronic pain issues. This treatment plan has a cost including a serious risk of addiction, cognitive issues, constipation, and sleepiness among many others side effects.
One study presented at the American Society of Anesthesiologists annual meeting in 2016 discussed a low back pain survey involving 2,030 patients. Half of those patients were taking narcotics for their chronic pain. Approximately 85% of these patients indicated the medications was “somewhat successful”, “moderately successful”, and “not successful”. Only 13% indicated it was very successful.
Wholistic Medical Group is the premiere holistic medical facility in Tampa Bay. Utilizing acupuncture, trigger point there, cupping, injection therapy, and orthomolecular supplementation. Hundreds of patients have been treated for chronic pain conditions so they are getting back to living and off opioids and other medications.
In particular, certain holistic injectables are equivalent to pain relievers such as cortisone but without the side effects. Cortisone side effects can be severe; rupture of a tendon, degenerative joints, vision problems, swelling, weight gain, shortness of breath, depression, and many more.
The preferred holistic injectable, Traumeel, is a homeopathic that has been used for over 60 years with great success. At Wholistic Medical Group our patients see relief from pain in 12-48 hours. Traumeel is a combination of 12 botanicals and 2 minerals proven to work in clinical trials alongside cortisone as an anti-inflammatory and analgesic.
Traumeel can also be mixed with an injectable called Sarapin that is a potent anti-inflammatory/analgesic. Its a derivative of the pitcher plan, an all natural botanical that reduces sensation in sensory nerves but does not affect motor nerves. Together these two injectables resolve stubborn chronic pain without the side effect of opioids and cortisone.
