Alternative Treatments Center
Alternative treatments (such as acupuncture or herbal remedies) may help you find pain relief. As the name implies, they are alternatives to medication, physical therapy, or surgery—the typical Western approach to medicine. You may consider going to a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) practitioner; CAM is a somewhat sweeping grouping of practices and therapies that aren't considered part of conventional medicine right now, but you may want to try them.
