What is integrative pain medicine? The Academy of Integrative Pain Management defines it as “a model of care that is patient-centered, considers the whole person, encourages healthy lifestyle changes in the first line of treatment to restore wellness, is evidence-based and brings together all appropriate therapeutic approaches and clinicians to reduce pain and achieve optimal health and healing.” Integrative pain relief encourages a team approach to each patient’s care.
Integrative pain medicine covers a vast number of treatment approaches and medical disciplines. That includes allopathic medicine as taught in medical schools, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), which includes chiropractic, massage, yoga, midwifery, naturopathy and other health disciplines and practices, and integrative medicine (IM), which integrates all available and appropriate strategies and disciplines for the patient’s benefit.
