Holistic pain therapy
An optimal individual holistic pain therapy always is integrative
Dr. Med. Afshin Seresti
In contrast to acute pain, chronic pain always lasts longer and comes back again, usually severely impacting the patient’s quality of life. Chronic pain is due to a variety of reasons, which again are dependent on various factors. It is, however, possible to help almost everyone with holistic pain therapy. The main reason for chronic pain usually comes from a postural disorder or an imbalance in the muscles and fibers which needs to be relieved. A specific treatment plan will be developed for each patient. Alternative healthcare treatment complements biomedical treatment, especially in offering the patient support in coping with daily life.
Holistic pain therapy requires a lot of time. In the beginning, you will have to answer several questions (the patient’s medical history), sometimes with the help of a questionnaire. After a comprehensive pain analysis, further special examinations might follow to start treatment.
In order to plan the visits better and to evaluate the urgency accordingly, please inform me about the following:
1. For how long have you suffered from pain and how does the pain feel?
2. What have you done to treat the pain yourself?
