Living with persistent pain affects you in ways that people who lead pain-free lives often don’t fully understand. It can keep you from activities you love, make you tired faster, and force you into modifications that put excess strain on other parts of your body. Ultimately, you want relief — and a return to normalcy.
To help you achieve that without invasive procedures or unwelcome side effects, Patrick Connolly, DC, and our team at Paragon Integrated Medical develop alternative pain therapy plans for our patients in Lake Elsinore, California, and the surrounding areas.

What’s more, medication can come with dependence issues and side effects. If you don’t want to find yourself reliant on a prescription or living with unwelcome side effects, alternative pain therapy may be a better choice for you.
In some cases, persistent pain can be resolved with surgery. The issue, though, is that surgery is certainly not a risk-free undertaking. Plus, it generally comes with an extensive recovery period.
To avoid the possibility of complications from a procedure and the rehabilitation and downtime that often comes with it, you can consider alternative paint therapy.
Another significant benefit of alternative pain therapy centers around the way Dr. Connolly delivers it. With a variety of treatments to choose from in his alternative therapy protocol, he can tailor a treatment plan for your specific pain levels, mobility goals, and other parameters.
