Pain Management Q & A

Why do I have chronic pain?

Getting to the root of chronic pain could require you to undergo some testing, including blood draws or X-rays. Once your provider checks for inflammatory biomarkers and obvious signs of injury through imaging, they can better understand why you’re in pain and find the right treatment.

An old injury that never healed properly can certainly leave you in chronic pain, but even this type of pain is manageable. Other causes of pain include:

  • Nerve damage
  • Inflammatory diseases
  • Poor diet
  • Arthritis
  • Weight fluctuations

Rest assured that no matter what’s causing your pain, your doctor at 1Body1Life helps you find a solution.  

What is pain management?

Pain management involves getting you through the hurdle of chronic pain, so you can get back to the things you enjoy. As alternative medicine and treatment experts, the providers at 1Body1Life strive to find you a treatment option that works for you, without always having to prescribe pain killers or medications.

The physicians at 1Body1Life have an integrated and functional medicine approach when it comes to diagnosing and treating an illness, disease, or injury. Some of the pain management options they offer include:

  • Medical cannabis certification
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Diet counseling for decreasing inflammation
  • Vitamin, mineral, and herbal supplement counseling

Your dedicated practitioner works to find an ideal pain management treatment for your specific condition that fits your lifestyle. In some cases, you may need to try several options before finding one (or more) that works well for you.

Can I get medical cannabis to help with pain management?

Possibly. You have to undergo an evaluation with an expert medical doctor at 1Body1Life to get certified to obtain medical cannabis for certain health ailments. Under the Illinois Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act, medical cannabis is approved to treat the following pain disorders or diseases:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Severe fibromyalgia
  • CRPS (complex regional pain syndrome Type II)
  • Lupus
  • Residual limb pain

The act authorizes cannabis treatment for several other pain-causing conditions, too. Talk with your physician to see if you have an ailment that qualifies for medical cannabis therapy.
