What is Natural Pain Management?
Natural pain management uses research-backed physical, regenerative and complementary methods to facilitate the body’s innate self-healing abilities, effectively addressing underlying causes for numerous painful conditions instead of just masking pain.
This approach, also known as responsible pain management, safely alleviates pain and restores wellness. Patients get long-term pain relief and experience a dramatically improved quality of life.
Tested natural pain treatments include physical therapy, massage therapy, acupuncture and chiropractic care.
The Benefits of Natural Pain Relief Include:
- Reduced or eliminated pain
- Injury recovery
- Improved range of motion, making daily activities easier
- Greater confidence and feeling of well-being
- Decreased muscle stiffness
- Increased flexibility
Pain Management Treatments At All American Medical
Our regenerative medicine therapies stimulate the body’s innate healing abilities to repair damaged tissue and reduce inflammation that causes pain.
Popular options at All American Medical include:
- PRP Injections (Platelet-Rich Plasma)
- Trigger Point Injections
- Human Cellular Tissue Products (HCTP) injections
- Alpha-2-Macroglobulin (A2M) Injections
Physical Therapy (PT)
We develop customized manual exercises and adaptive physical therapy programs to improve mobility, strength, flexibility, and function. PT empowers self-management and has strong clinical evidence supporting benefits for back pain, arthritis, injuries and other conditions.
We use various massage therapy methods to relieve short- and long-term pain by enhancing blood flow, relaxing muscles, reducing inflammation, and improving range of motion. Massage also aids in stress and anxiety reduction. Studies confirm massage therapy alleviates pain from lower back problems, headaches, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, and more.
Our chiropractors specialize in diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal system disorders. They commonly use spinal adjustments, soft tissue techniques and lifestyle counseling to relieve pain stemming from joint dysfunction or misalignment. Research affirms chiropractic’s advantages for aiding chronic pain, improving mobility, reducing opioids and surgery, and facilitating injury rehabilitation.

Clinical Evidence Supports a Holistic Approach to Pain Relief
Substantial and growing evidence from randomized controlled trials and systematic reviews demonstrates responsible pain management’s meaningful benefits for safely alleviating chronic pain and improving function versus pharmaceuticals, surgery, and other approaches.
A few examples include:
For Treating Chronic Pain
Multiple high-quality clinical trials substantiate the effectiveness of natural pain management for chronic pain relief. A 2016 meta-analysis showed that multi-disciplinary rehabilitative approaches incorporating exercise, psychology, and physical therapy significantly improved disability, pain, and quality of life for chronic low back pain versus various control groups.1
PRP Injections For Pain
PRP injections also display positive results; a 2019 meta-analysis of 10 RCTs proved PRP injections improved function and reduced pain associated with knee osteoarthritis over 6-12 months versus hyaluronic acid and placebo injections.2
Chiropractic Results For Chronic Pain
Multiple studies also confirm chiropractic’s advantages for addressing chronic pain. A 2018 systematic review showed patients preferred spinal manipulation delivered by chiropractors versus other clinicians for short-term (1 month) pain relief and functional improvement.3
Is The Natural Approach Affordable?
Complementary pain therapies are some of the most cost-effective ways to treat your pain. In almost all instances, your treatments will be covered by your insurance. Many insurance providers have begun to require that you try a conservative approach to pain management (such as Chiropractic) before more invasive and costly procedures.
All American Medical accepts Medicare and most major insurance plans. Call us for more info: (985) 893-2223.
