Complementary therapies

There are so many therapies that have the potential to lower our pain or help us find balance and stability in the midst of chaos and pain. Here is a list of some complementary therapies that may be worth looking into.

Again, U.S. Pain Foundation does not endorse one type of treatment. As an organization, we support all therapies that can provide the 100 million Americans living with pain answers and relief.

To heal does not necessarily mean to cure. It can simply mean helping people to achieve a way of life compatible with their aspirations—to restore their freedom to make choices—even in the presence of continuing disease.
