I have tried many alternative approaches to pain management, in addition to traditional pain medication. Among the most helpful have been yoga, acupuncture, massage (especially shiatsu) and chiropractic. My insurance covers 12 chiro visits a year and I pay for everything else. I feel lucky that I can afford acupuncture twice a month. If my insurance would pay for it instead, and cover massage, I believe I could be pain free, since I would be able to get treatment weekly. I believe that if I could get weekly treatment in the form of acupunture and massage, I would never need the opiates to manage my pain. It would also allow me to be more active, in turn managing other aspects of my life in a healthier way (ie pain control + more activity = weight loss). What a great life that would be.
