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.



Are CAM therapies effective?

Many of the purported benefits of CAM and natural therapies may not have the same level of evidence to support their use like the more vigorously studied conventional medical approaches. CAM therapies are not side effect free and can interact with other treatments, so it’s important to have a consultation with one of our doctors prior to starting any new treatments. Anodyne adopts the view that if it is safe, effective, not interacting with medically required treatments, and improving your quality of life – then why not give it a try? It could be life changing.



How do I know if it’s right for me?

CAM therapies aren’t right for everyone, but many people prefer a natural approach to pain management and find it to be more effective. With different types of CAM therapies to explore, consultants will always be here to help make the decision that’s right for you. Depending on your needs, we can devise a completely medical free treatment program that promotes natural wellbeing and recovery, or recommend complementary medicines in addition to your existing pain management plan.
