An Integrative Approach to Pain Management
Scalable hands on treatments for any patient
Research data supports that an interdisciplinary approach to pain can provide more effective relief and quicker resolution of pain. Interdisciplinary means the integration of multiple therapies and practitioners to create a tailored treatment plan that meets a patient’s needs. When we consider that pain costs us billions of dollars every year as individuals and as a society, we should aim to provide the best methods for resolution and management.
What is even more important is the person in pain. Your body, your health history, and your current environment will all come together to influence how and why your pain is the way it is, so why not work with experts to help you tackle it from multiple angles?
Rebel Med NW's Approach
Rebel Med NW features a diverse group of providers who are exceptionally trained in pain pathologies, are informed by their own life experiences of pain management and are passionate about getting people to a better place. Pain comes from different places and happens for different reasons including inflammation, chronic use, auto-immune pathways, neurological pathways, mood pathways, musculoskeletal overuse and injuries, and so much more. It would make sense to work in a team-based approach to tackle the problem from all the angles it might be presenting.
Additionally, Rebel Med NW features a multitude of toolsets in-house so that you can get the care you need in one place and you can trust the quality that is being provided. We offer acupuncture, spinal manipulations, medical massage therapy, trigger point therapies, and much more, and we take the time and consideration to educate our patients throughout the process.
Naturopathic Physicians for Pain Management
The Naturopathic Physicians at Rebel Med NW aren’t just trained in Primary Care and Internal Medicine, they are also trained in many Physical Medicine techniques such as Spinal Manipulations. Similar to what chiropractors do, our providers can perform manipulations to the spine and other structures for pain relief and management. How we are different is that our providers can also provide more time for education and set you up with other techniques such as applied heat and stretching to the muscles so you can have a smoother more comfortable process. Our providers can also perform Trigger Point Injection Therapy, cupping, ultrasound, Kinesio taping, recommend simple exercise plans, provide supplement recommendations, prescribe medications, and make imaging and specialist referrals.

Acupuncture & Bodywork for Pain Management
Rebel Med NW Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine providers use multiple techniques and treatments within their scope of practice to provide pain reduction. With primary training in TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) all providers use Acupuncture to both move Qi, or energy in the body, improve blood flow, and affect the nervous system to lesson pain in the body.
When paired with therapeutic massage, cupping, and Chinese massage (Tui Na), our acupuncture providers can treat many common ailments such as strains, sprains, tendonitis issues of the extremities, or even deeper adjunctive therapies for disc degeneration or arthritis conditions.
