Naturopathic medicine is a holistic, coordinated approach to health care that respects the unique individuality of each person and that integrates modern biomedical sciences with a wide array of natural and conventional therapies. It seeks to remove the underlying causes of disease rather than merely eliminating or suppressing symptoms and is a comprehensive system of health care that incorporates many modalities. Naturopathic physicians are in a perfect position to approach pain management. This is especially true of complex pain cases that may involve a number of factors often seen in chronic pain including environmental, dietary and behavioral contributors.
