What exactly is it?
Complementary & Alternative Medicine (CAM) refers to forms of healthcare that are used in addition to or instead of traditional medical treatment. CAM therapies can include treatments such as naturopathy, acupuncture, yoga, and chiropractic to name a few. CAM therapies are often selected because of their lesser propensity to cause side effects, medication interactions and their greater tolerability profile. They can also have other benefits that extend beyond pain management and can sometimes help with overall wellbeing.
