What Is Symptom Management In Palliative Care?
Whether your pain is acute or chronic, we know that your number one goal is to get rid of your discomfort as quickly as possible. If pain is affecting your daily routine, making it difficult to complete normal everyday tasks or affecting your quality of life then the pain specialists at Shenandoah Pain and Palliative Care Clinic can help.
How Holistic Care Can Help Manage Symptoms
When it comes to managing your symptoms traditional medicine often just looks at the symptoms themselves and provides medications or other treatment options designed to alleviate these symptoms when they arise. While this may provide fast and immediate relief, symptoms often return. Holistic medical care is different.
Here at Shenandoah Pain and Palliative Care Clinic, we take into account not just your physical state, but also your emotional, mental and spiritual states and how they impact your health. Holistic care provides both clinical care and alternative approaches to offer a more comprehensive and vast approach to improving your overall health (not just improving the symptoms themselves).
Holistic pain management can involve a variety of treatment options including,
- Mindfulness meditation
- Chiropractic therapy
- Massage therapy
Who Can Benefit from Holistic Pain Management
The truth is almost everyone can benefit from getting holistic care. Not only do we truly get to know every facet of you and your life to be able to provide treatment that is tailored to your needs and lifestyle but also we provide a variety of unique and complementary options that can help ease pain, inflammation and other problems that may not be responding to medicine and traditional treatments alone. Holistic care helps you manage your symptoms by coming at it from all possible angles.
If you are living with chronic pain or diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, kidney and liver disease, lung disease, or HIV/AIDS, know that our holistic medical team can improve not just your symptoms but also your wellbeing and quality of life through alternative therapies, counseling and psychological support. We find that many people living with chronic illnesses also experience anxiety and depression around their illness, which can make symptoms worse. With holistic care, we take your emotional and mental health into account when creating a treatment plan that will work best for you.
