Pain Management Q&A

What is pain management?

Pain management is an area of medical care focused on helping you find an effective treatment to alleviate your pain symptoms. Most pain management treatments, however, only provide symptom relief and fail to address the root cause of the pain condition.

Dr. Quraishi is a naturopathic doctor and takes a more holistic and integrative approach to pain management. She aims to discover the root cause of your symptoms by understanding your body’s unique biochemical and physiological functions. 

What can I expect during a pain management consultation?

You can expect a comprehensive evaluation when you come in to see Dr. Quraishi for a pain management consultation. She takes a holistic approach to care and evaluates your whole health, not just your symptoms.

During your consultation, she gathers information about what may contribute to your pain condition, including physical, emotional, social, and environmental factors. 

She also reviews your medical and family history, the types of medications and supplements you take, and your diet and exercise habits.

She performs a physical exam and runs extensive lab work to confirm or rule out the root cause of your pain. Your lab work may include:

  • Organic acid testing
  • Micronutrient testing
  • Food allergy and sensitivity testing
  • Cardiovascular screening
  • Thyroid panel
  • Genetic testing

She then uses the science of conventional medicine and the wisdom of alternative medicine to address the underlying cause of your pain symptoms. 

What are pain management therapies?

Dr. Quraishi uses naturopathic therapies for pain management. She creates customized treatment plans aimed at the root cause of your pain condition. 

Your pain management plan may include:

  • Herbal medicine
  • Acupuncture
  • Massage therapy
  • Exercise regimen
  • Personalized nutrition care plan
  • Therapeutic-grade nutritional supplements
  • Stress management tools
  • Cleanse and detox
  • Hydrotherapy

When it comes to pain management and your health, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Dr. Quraishi personalizes pain management to help you find the therapy that leads to long-term pain relief and improvement in your quality of life.

She schedules regular follow-up appointments to monitor your symptoms and health. She also repeats your lab work to assess the effectiveness of your treatment plan.
