The world has come a long way in the past couple of decades. It's incredible what we can do now that we couldn't do just ten years ago. This is especially true when it comes to technology, but also in medicine and science.

There are many types of drug-free pain relief and they include:
- PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy)
- Physical rehabilitation
- TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)
- Stem cell treatments
PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field Therapy)
PEMF (pulsed electromagnetic field therapy) is a non-invasive treatment that uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate biological processes. It has been discovered, that PEMF therapy can be effective in treating pain, tissue repair and inflammation. It can also be used to treat other conditions such as asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome and fibromyalgia.
PEMF Therapy works by increasing cell membrane permeability which leads to increased microcirculation at the cellular level. This in turn leads to improved oxygenation of cells and tissues thus improving healing rates in damaged areas such as sprains, strains or torn ligaments.
When you have an injury, illness, or disease that causes you to suffer chronic pain, physical rehabilitation can help. Physical rehabilitation is the process of healing your body after it has been injured or has experienced some other trauma. Physical rehabilitation can help people recover from injuries such as torn ligaments, broken bones and even amputations. It can also help patients who have contracted illnesses such as multiple sclerosis or Parkinson's disease get their lives back on track after they've recovered from a debilitating illness. And when it comes to recovering from chronic diseases like cancer? Well that's where physical therapy comes in! A good physical therapist will work with patients throughout their treatment plan so that they can manage their symptoms by getting them moving again--and hopefully feel better at the end of the day!
TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation)
TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) is a non-drug method of providing pain relief. It's a therapy that uses electrical impulses to stimulate the body’s natural pain relieving system.
It's not a cure for the causes of your pain, but it can help relieve it.
Stem cell treatments
Most of us are familiar with stem cell treatments from their use in the medical field. The procedure, which involves injecting your own stem cells into the part of your body that needs healing, is often used to treat degenerative joint conditions like osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. It can also be used in other cases where there is damage to tendons, ligaments and cartilage.
Stem cell treatments are thought to work by promoting growth of healthy tissue and reducing inflammation in damaged areas.
There are a number of devices that can help reduce pain without drugs. One such treatment is called neurostimulation, which uses electricity to stimulate nerves in the brain and spinal cord. The stimulation helps block the pain signals from getting through to the brain.
The procedure is done using a small implant or device placed under your skin near the spinal cord, which delivers mild electrical impulses to block pain signals from being transmitted up through your nervous system.
While it's not considered a cure for chronic pain disorders, it has shown promising results for treating conditions such as complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) and post-herpetic neuralgia (PHN). It's also been used to relieve other types of aches and pains like fibromyalgia, arthritis and shingles.
Taking medications not the only way to fix what ails you.
Taking medications is not the only way to fix what ails you. If you are looking for drug free pain relief, then talk to your doctor. There are many options available that can be effective and affordable. They work differently than prescribed medications, but may be good alternatives especially if you have side effects to prescription drugs.
Before trying any new treatment, it is important to talk with your doctor about how well it has worked for others and how safe it is to use compared with other treatments. Your doctor will want to know:
- How often do I need this treatment
- Are there any scientific studies to support an outcome
- What does the tecnology actually do
Life is short, and we want to spend it living life to the fullest. That means not letting pain hold you back, right? The good news is that there are options out there for people who want to avoid addictive, habit-forming medicines and invasive surgeries. We’ve only scratched the surface here of what the future holds in terms of drug-free pain relief—that’s why we’re so excited about this topic! There are plenty more pain management techniques waiting for us all just around the corner… maybe even some that don’t involve any needles at all.
At Urban Wellness Space we have two different technologies, the Pulsed Electromagnetic Therapy, ( PEMF) and the Red & Infra Red light therapy that both have studies in the area of pain management. We have clients who have benefited and felt the difference, all done at a cellular level without medication or sideeffects.
