For over 25 years, Abington Surgical Center has been a leader in the pain management arena offering start-to-finish support with a high success rate. Working as a team with you and your family, our outstanding physicians and staff offer you the most positive experience and successful results available today.

As we continue to evolve with modern medicine, you will see that the overall philosophy is now trending toward pain management from a more holistic perspective. What does this mean for you? It means in combination with our traditional therapeutic approach, we will also provide you with tools to learn more about alternative and complementary treatments that could enhance your overall mind, body, spirit.

Techniques to Enhance Pain Management

Over the course of the next year, we will provide you with information through our monthly newsletter, our blogs, and free community forums so that you can learn more about these alternative and complementary treatments that could enhance your pain management experience.

What are these methods?

Many of these methods have been practiced for thousands of years, but are just now being embraced by Western medicine. We will introduce you to acupuncture and acupressure (shiatsu) and even provide names of recommended local practitioners. We will also talk about yoga, meditation, and massage. Each of these practices has a similar end goal of harnessing inner energies to evoke feelings of happiness, healing and health.

We will talk about diet, about exercise and about overall nutrition so that you are feeding not only your body, but your soul.

Learn More about these therapies by continuing to read our newsletter, and follow our facebook page for daily articles and tips on these alternative methodologies.
