Physical Medicine

Physical medicine is a safe, non-pharmaceutical option for those hoping for pain relief.

If you are suffering from more structural health conditions such as muscle strains, arthritis, and other types of pain, your naturopathic medical team may suggest physical medicine as part of your treatment plan. You can experience improved well-being, a faster recovery from injury, and often a strengthened immune system! 

Initial physical medicine appointments last one hour, and follow-up office calls range from 30 minutes to one hour. When you become a patient in one of our physical medicine shifts, you will feel heard, understood, and well cared for.
