Different Types of Yoga
Studies have shown that yoga is an effective way to manage chronic pain. There are a variety of different types of yoga such as Restorative, Yin, Hatha, and Iyengar. Each one offers its own benefits. At Adam's Healing Center, we help you find ways to manage your pain and find the right yoga style for you.
Release Through Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medical practice that's been used as an integrative or complementary therapy for pain. This relieves pain by releasing endorphins, the body's natural pain-killing chemicals, and by affecting the part of the brain that governs serotonin, a chemical involved with mood. At Adam's Healing Center we help you find ways to release tension and reduce inflammation, naturally.
Chiropractic and Massage Therapy
Chiropractors treat many conditions involving pain and often offer therapeutic massages in their offices. They use several mechanisms, including relaxing painful muscles, tendons, and joints; relieving stress and anxiety, and helping to “close the pain gate” by stimulating competing nerve fibers and impeding pain messages to and from the brain. If you're looking for an alternative to medication, consider chiropractic or massage therapy.
At Adam's Healing Center we provide a variety of different treatment options to help you get a handle on your pain without relying on medications. We offer personalized care with a team of specialists who are dedicated to your success. Call us for your outpatient option for your addiction recovery!
