Integrative medicine provides an essential framework for approaching pain, especially complex, refractory pain. The principles of integrative medicine can be used as a guide for optimizing the selection of integrative treatment options. Treatment with an integrative approach has been shown to improve pain and functional outcomes while potentially reducing the cost of care.
