Wondering how “Natural Pain Relief” can reduce pain without the risks of addiction, bone loss, immune suppression, or constipation associated with opioid use? Or how you can reduce your reliance on steroid prescriptions while eliminating the unwanted side effects of immune-system suppression, mood swings, and swelling?
Dr. Livengood partners with you to create a customized treatment plan to fit your lifestyle. Some popular therapies for pain relief include:
Low Level Light Therapy (LLLT) – one of the most effective and high-tech treatments, widely used by elite athletes to speed healing and get them back to work ASAP. Dr. Livengood’s cutting edge Light Therapy device utilizes 26 specific combinations of red and near-infrared light to penetrate into different types of tissues and promote healing. Technique and timing also matter, so Dr. Livengood has ensured that the safest and best protocols are customized for each patient. The most common uses in her practice include hair restoration, pain relief, facial collagen production, and insomnia-relief. The secret to multiple functions is in the varying frequencies and wavelengths available – which is why you’ll get the best results here at the Premiere LLLT Center in Arizona ™. Call my office for more information.”
Homeopathy and Lidocaine – injected into areas of pain and into specific Acupuncture points allow the nervous system, circulatory system, and your own immune response to promote healing faster. The correct formula and treatment plan is individually created depending on the cause of your pain.
PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma contains growth factors and immune signaling chemicals which are retrieved from your own plasma so there’s never a chance of a reaction.
Medical Marijuana and CBD – used for thousands of years to reduce inflammation and resolve pain, these plants are becoming more regulated and understood for the healing properties they contain.
Acupuncture and Cupping – effectively treating humans for over 5,000 years. While the original terminology may sound like a foreign language today, modern research shows that acupuncture physically reduces inflammation, improves circulation and operates via nerve conduction. This is why a tiny needle inserted near the ankle can affect vision, as seen on functional MRI studies. Selecting the most effective points is both an art and a science. Trained in Traditional Chinese Acupuncture, Dr. Livengood expertly utilizes information from your tongue, pulses, symptoms, and body-wide function to customize a treatment protocol for you at each visit. Cupping, electric-acupuncture (using e-stim), or other adjunct therapies may be included depending on your needs. Bonus: you get to relax in a spa-like setting, promoting your own healing through the parasympathetic nervous system – which is the only way the body can restore itself.

Acupuncture points are also used to expertly inject pain-relief medications at Dr. Livengood Natural health.
