Complementary Health Approaches for Chronic Pain About 100 million U.S. adults suffer from chronic pain conditions. (Chronic pain is pain that lasts for a long time, usually at least several months.) The annual economic cost of chronic pain in the United States, including both treatment and lost productivity, has been estimated at approximately $600 billion. Chronic pain is more common among women than men, and it becomes more common with increasing age. Experts expect the number of people with pain to increase, in part because the U.S. population is aging, and some
painful conditions, such as arthritis, become more common as people get older. The 2007 National Health Interview Survey showed that use of complementary health approaches was common among adults with painful conditions. For example, 47 percent of survey respondents who had migraine or back pain with sciatica used complementary approaches, as did 41 percent of those who had headaches regularly. More adults used complementary health approaches for painful conditions than for any other type of

Complementary Health Approaches, health problem. Back pain was the number one reason why adults used complementary health approaches, and neck pain, joint pain/stiffness, arthritis, other musculoskeletal pain, and severe headache or migraine all ranked among the top 10.
What Are Complementary Health Approaches? Complementary health approaches are medical and health care systems, practices, and products that originated outside of mainstream medicine. They include techniques performed by a practitioner (such as acupuncture, spinal manipulation, and massage therapy) and natural products (such as herbs, probiotics, and fish oil). Some approaches, including acupuncture and yoga, originated in Eastern countries such as China or India but are now used in Western countries as well. Little research has been done on many complementary health approaches. Therefore, in many instances, it’s uncertain whether they are safe or effective. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is sponsoring research to learn more about the safety and effectiveness of complementary approaches.
Complementary vs. Alternative When people talk about health care practices with non-mainstream 22 F E B RUARY 2 014

origins, they often use the words “alternative” and “complementary” as though they mean the same thing, but the two words usually refer to different concepts. “Complementary” refers to use of a non-mainstream approach together with conventional medicine. “Alternative” refers to use of a non-mainstream approach in place of conventional medicine. True “alternative” medicine is not common. Most people who use nonmainstream approaches use them along with conventional treatments.
What the Research Shows Research has shown that some complementary health approaches may help people with some types of pain. Here are some examples of complementary approaches that may be helpful for certain conditions. Acupuncture, massage, progressive relaxation, spinal manipulation, and yoga may be helpful for low-back pain. For neck pain, acupuncture and spinal manipulation may be helpful; whether massage helps is uncertain. Acupuncture, massage, and tai chi may be helpful for osteoarthritis pain. For rheumatoid arthritis pain, omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) may help to a modest extent. Acupuncture, relaxation T h E VA L L EY R E v UE

techniques, and spinal manipulation may be helpful for reducing the frequency of headaches. Research on complementary approaches for fibromyalgia is in its early stages, but there is some evidence that massage, tai chi, and meditation might help.
Pain Research at NIH Pain is an important focus of NIH research. NIH has established a Pain Consortium to enhance research on pain and promote collaboration among researchers from the many NIH agencies that have programs and activities related to pain. NCCAM, which is NIH’s lead agency for complementary health approaches, is part of the consortium and is working to improve the evidence on the effectiveness and safety of complementary approaches for pain. In addition, NCCAM has a research program that focuses on the role of the brain in perceiving, www.vall ey rev ue .co m

modifying, and managing pain. Examples of NIH-sponsored research on complementary health approaches for pain include the following. • Yoga for low-back pain. Two NIHsponsored studies showed that participating in yoga classes may be helpful in reducing symptoms of lowback pain. • Massage therapy for back or neck pain. Separate studies of back pain and neck pain indicated that massage therapy may be helpful for both of these problems. • Spinal manipulation for neck pain. Either spinal manipulation therapy or home exercise instruction was more effective than medication for neck pain, according to an NIHsponsored study. • Acupuncture for pain. A group of researchers supported by NIH analyzed data from 29 studies of acupuncture for various types of pain (back and neck pain, osteoarthritis, F E B RUARY 2 014

shoulder pain, or headache). They found that when acupuncture was compared with simulated (fake) acupuncture, true acupuncture was more effective, but the difference in the pain relief produced by the two procedures was small. When acupuncture was compared with no acupuncture, a larger difference was seen. • How acupuncture may affect the brain during the treatment of pain. Several NIH-supported studies have investigated how acupuncture may affect the brain in people with pain. For example, a study in women with fibromyalgia found differences in the brain’s responses to acupuncture and simulated (fake) acupuncture. A study currently in progress is examining the brain responses to acupuncture and simulated acupuncture in people with painful osteoarthritis of the knee. • Tai chi for fibromyalgia and knee osteoarthritis. A preliminary NIHsupported study indicated that tai chi may help to relieve symptoms of fibromyalgia. A larger study now in progress is comparing the effects of tai chi to those of aerobic exercise in people with fibromyalgia. Another preliminary study showed that tai chi may be helpful for pain in knee osteoarthritis. A follow up study is comparing tai chi to physical therapy in people with knee osteoarthritis.

erkeley Springs, a fountainhead of warm mineral waters frequented by Native Americans long before Europeans arrived in the New World, are at the heart of a mountain spa community in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle. First noted as Medicine Springs in 1747 on a map drawn by Thomas Jefferson’s father, the waters for many centuries have drawn visitors seeking health and relief from the stress of everyday life. In 1776, George Washington’s family and friends drew up a plat of 134 lots, named the streets, and incorporated The Town of Bath, invoking the muses of the renowned English spa. Yet the magic of the springs prevailed, and the town and surrounding area are known by their name – Berkeley Springs. The waters flow at a constant 74°F from the base of Warm Springs Ridge. You may still drink freely and fill your jugs at Lord Fairfax’s public tap, and wade in the ancient stone pools in the nation’s smallest state park. The town has endured cycles of notoriety, fashion, war and modern progress, but remains the Country’s First Spa, a quiet, friendly haven surrounded by West Virginia’s splendid outdoors. ß T h E VA L L EY R E v UE
