Help For Pain
Pain from recent injuries or long-term pain are difficult for anyone. The individual attention and care given at Natural Healthcare & Diagnostics is appreciated by our patients.
Dr. Carrick’s desire is to find the genuine source and cause of pain; to alleviate or end it entirely; and to lower harmful inflammation through systemic, wholistic treatment. With a gentle manner, she has a number of tools for addressing pain and extending comfort to patients.
“For the better part of three years, I’ve had attacks of trigeminal neuralgia that also involved the vagus nerve. My face felt like it was burning, my teeth and sinuses hurt, my vision blurred and my head pounded. I sought relief from specialists in neurology, rheumatology, pro-facial pain, and on and on with no relief. . . . Using FSM, Dr. Carrick was able to eliminate the pain and interrupt the frequency of episodes. After the most recent treatment, I went for four months without pain and without an attack. I am grateful for her care and her insights into treatment with FSM.”*
