Top Natural Pain Relief Treatment Alternatives

Written By Breen Chiropractic Clinic, PC on December 18, 2018

Our nation is facing an opioid crisis that has many people turning to alternative therapies for pain relief to avoid the side effects — and potential for addiction — caused by prescription medications.

Fortunately, your chiropractor has a number of safe, effective, drug-free therapies at his fingertips to help you heal from injury and manage pain. 

Pain Relief Treatments That Really Work


Chiropractic care, which involves the safe, gentle manipulation of spinal processes to lower inflammation, reduce pain, and optimize your health, has been around for many years. 

Research shows that chiropractic spinal manipulation is a good way to relieve chronic and acute pain, especially of the lower back.

In addition to providing chiropractic care, your chiropractor is also well-versed in other treatments that can act synergistically with traditional chiropractic treatments.


Acupuncture is a painless treatment that involves setting hair-thin tiny needles into specific points on your body to stimulate circulation and reduce pain. 

It’s been around for centuries, and new studies show it’s an effective non-drug way to handle pain.

Massage Therapy

Massage is for more than just stress relief.

Research shows that massage therapy is a great way to reduce — and manage — nonmalignant pain that’s chronic. It can also help restore function and movement to injured areas.

Physical Therapy

Another science-backed way of relieving pain and assisting recovery from injury is through the various modalities of physical therapy. 

Whether through exercise, resistance training, postural training, or massage, physical therapy is the perfect complement to a drug-free health plan that includes chiropractic care.
