Pain Relief

Healing starts here.

You just want the pain to end. You don’t want the drugs-not the foggy way they make you feel nor the risk of getting addicted. In fact, pain relief medication can actually inhibit healing.

Fortunately, the Vernon naturopathic physicians at Vero Health offer another kind of pain relief, the kind that heals at the site-the nerve.

Why should you consider a naturopathic approach to healing and pain relief?

Conventional medicine’s approach to pain relief would be to offer you medications such as anti-inflammatory drugs, antidepressants, anti-seizure medications, muscle relaxants and opiates such as Vicodin and Codeine.

Do they relieve pain? Yes. For an hour or two. Do they promote long-term health and healing? No.

In addition to being potentially addictive with uncomfortable and even dangerous side effects, these pain relief medications can even inhibit your damaged structure’s ability to heal by weakening the tissue in your body and possibly even worsening your pain.

That’s why our Vernon naturopathic physicians dig to find the root cause of your pain and offer holistic therapies to help your tissue heal and keep you comfortable during the healing process.

What are some naturopathic pain relief therapies we use to heal your tissue?

*Subcutaneous perineural injection (SPNI) involves injecting low concentration dextrose to reduce pain as well as neuropathic inflammation and treat the nerve, not ligaments, tendons, cartilage.
