Alternative Treatment Options

Acupuncture:

Acupuncture is a minimally invasive therapeutic method that uses fine, painless needles to stimulate specific points on the body to stimulate healing. Acupuncture Physical Medicine (APM) is a style of acupuncture which integrates traditional meridian acupuncture with the treatment of myofascial trigger points. It is especially well suited for the treatment of chronic pain, chronic fatigue and stress.

Medicinal Cannabis Therapy:

Medical Marijuana has become an effective tool in treating chronic pain. The marijuana plant contains more than 100 different chemicals called cannabinoids, each with a different effect on the body. Delta-9-tetrahydrocannibinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) are the main chemicals which are being used for medicinal purposes.  Cannabinoids are thought to help reduce anxiety, inflammation, relax tight muscles and reduce pain. There are currently 33 states including New Jersey, where medicinal marijuana is legal and widely used.  Click here https://njmmp.nj.gov/njmmp/ to learn more about the criteria for medicinal marijuana in the state of New Jersey.
