If you are hurting, back-pain doctors at Performance Pain are here to help! Welcome to our site where residents of Raritan, NJ have discovered a myriad of ways in which back pain can be minimized, eliminated, and controlled through holistic science’s pain-specific solutions.
Back pain, unfortunately, is an unforgiving condition that affects the vast majority of Americans to one degree, or another. If there is any ‘good’ news, it could be that you are not alone with your suffering! In fact, 80% of Americans deal with back pain on a regular or semi-regular basis. For some, it is a daily battle; for others, the pain can come and go whenever it is in the ‘mood’ to torment.
There is a light at the end of this dark, pain-ridden tunnel, however. Performance Pain has back-pain doctors who can address your concerns, regardless of whether your back pain is slightly annoying or completely disabling! Instead of relying on prescribing muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatory drugs, our back-pain doctors focus on a holistic approach to treat back pain associated with congenital, degenerative, and traumatic conditions.
Our Raritan, NJ clients benefit from our highly-skilled back-pain doctors who embrace a variety of disciplines involving Medical, Neurological Rehabilitation, Whole Body, Wellness and Sports Performance.
No Drugs & No Surgery?
Many of our Raritan, NJ patients have their back-pain conditions treated without drugs or typical surgery. This is what the holistic approach does, and it includes acupuncture, massage therapies, and next-generation technologies to ensure results that are, either, permanent or last for many months. People of all ages can suffer from back pain – they want their lives back, and Performance Pain’s mission is to help make that happen! That is accomplished through:
Back Pain Management That Is Holistic
Our holistic, non-surgical approach to relieving back pain may be in the form of a few treatments or it may focus on whole-body integration. We offer personalized, patient-directed back-pain management strategies designed to heal one’s body on the inside and the outside.
With a holistic methodology, multidisciplinary interventions are utilized. Our Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, Massage Therapists, and Acupuncturist target and treat the source of one’s back pain allowing whole-body rejuvenation and healing to occur. Also, when these therapies are included in an on-going and dedicated regime, future pain events can be, proactively, prevented.
Massage therapy is, only, one aspect of holistic healing, that offers a track record of success. Meet Heather Tick, MD – a professor at the University of Washington School of Medicine and author of Holistic Pain Relief.
She states, “Massage is an excellent form of therapy to soothe back pain. Patients can regain normal function, and the results can lead to a reduction or elimination of prescribed medications”. It is not uncommon for regular massage therapy to reduce or eliminate pain for up to 6 months, or longer.
When back pain management becomes a success, one’s outlook on life becomes renewed, as well! Holistic, non-surgical interventions are beyond promising – they are proven!
Back Pain Management That Is Proven
A plethora of impressive pain-management therapies have proven themselves to be highly-effective solutions for back-pain relief. Those therapies can involve cutting-edge technologies as well as centuries-old remedies whose proven results speak for themselves. Acupuncture, for example, has a long, documented history that goes back thousands of years. Acupuncture boosts the body’s natural pain-killers – neurohormones – which have multiple pain-control functions.
This physiological phenomenon is supported by the Mayo Clinic. Also, John S. Cullen, MD –president of the American Academy of Family Physicians –states, “Acupuncture can be, especially, beneficial for patients with chronic pain, particularly, if it is nerve related. I recommend acupuncture for pain that is not, easily, treated by other means.” Interestingly, back pain is one of the top reasons people seek acupuncture remedies.
At Performance Pain, we continue to share the effectiveness of our pain management techniques, and we are delighted that 97% of our patient base do not require surgery!
Back Pain Management That Is Cutting-Edge
Our back-pain doctors utilize cutting-edge medical treatments with their physical therapies, chiropractic care, sports medicine, acupuncture & massage treatments, and wellness programs. Our mission, at Performance Pain, is to enable patients to become pain-free, drug-free, and surgery-free.
The following treatments represent only a handful of the many next-generation pain-management options we provide our Raritan, NJ clients:
- Spinal Cord Stimulator – relieves chronic pain in back, arms, and legs. Electrical stimulating electrodes are introduced into the spinal canal. Pain messages are, actually, blocked before they reach the brain!
- Radio Frequency Ablation – relieves pain associated with the back, neck, muscles, and other areas. High-frequency electrical energy is delivered through a needle inserted into the skin. The electrical energy destroys a small area of the nerve tissue, thereby, reducing pain signals from the affected area.
- Endoscopic Rhizotomy – this same-day procedure relieves chronic neck and back pain by deadening affected nerve branches through the use of laser technology. Nerve branches, which are identified through an endoscope, have only a sensory function.
