Alternative Medicine Techniques

What are alternative medical techniques?

Alternative medical techniques most commonly are outside of conventional medical care (1). In other words, they promote wholistic healing for pain management. Wholistic healing involves treating the whole person, body, emotions, mind, relationships, and spirit (1). Alternative medical techniques include:

* Acupuncture

* Massage

* Reflexology

* Craniosacral therapy

* Mind/body techniques

* Guided imagery

* Acupressure

* Yoga

* Meditation

* Prayer

* Thermal treatments

* Chiropractic approach

* And others

More doctors are recommending alternative medical techniques to patients for chronic pain. Recent surveys in the United States demonstrated that alternative medical techniques were important for personal healthcare and maintaining well being (2). Also, there is evidence that one or more alternative medical techniques can help patients with: cancer, arthritis, fibromyalgia, back pain, neck pain, Tourette syndrome, multiple sclerosis, and many more.
