What is a Holistic Pain Specialist?


A holistic pain specialist is an expert in pain management who uses every tool available to help relieve and manage pain. Holistic treatment might include complementary therapies such as acupuncture alongside advice on diet and lifestyle, together with conventional pain relief medication and other Western medical interventions.

The holistic approach is particularly beneficial when it comes to pain management because pain is something that can affect every aspect of your life. Pain management can be just as much about relieving the mental and emotional impact of pain and helping you to live the life you choose as it is about targeting the physical causes. A holistic approach to pain looks at the whole person, creating a treatment plan that works for the individual.

Your holistic pain specialist will work with you to find the right combination of treatments to manage your pain. Nothing that could help with your pain will be overlooked, so you might see a physiotherapist, an acupuncturist, and a medical specialist for interventional pain management. You might receive conventional medical treatment at one appointment and alternative therapy at the next. Your treatment will be designed for the whole you, mind and body, and it will make use of every treatment and technique that can make your life easier.
