What Treatments Can Aid in Inflammation Relief?

By: Dr. Ana M. Sierra de Aragon


If you are suffering from acute or chronic pain, there is a good chance that it may be at least partially associated with inflammation. When left untreated, the side effects of inflammation can become much worse, leaving patients with ongoing pain, depression, anxiety, stiffness, and more. While prescription medications may provide temporary relief from the symptoms of inflammation, they often do little to treat the underlying condition itself. To help men and women reduce inflammation in their bodies and find reliable, long-lasting relief from chronic pain and other symptoms, double board-certified physician Dr. Ana M. Sierra de Aragon and the Scottsdale and Gilbert, AZ teams at Universal Healing and Wellness use the most advanced and effective technologies available.

What causes inflammation in the body?

There are many potential triggers that can be responsible for isolated and/or widespread inflammation in the body, including:

  • Trauma
  • Surgery
  • Infection
  • Virus
  • Bacteria
  • Exposure to certain chemicals or substances
  • Dietary factors
  • Obesity
  • Underlying health conditions
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Lack of physical activity (sedentary lifestyle)
  • Smoking
  • Drinking alcohol

What are the symptoms of inflammation?

Depending on the cause of a person’s inflammation, the body part(s) affected by inflammation, and other individual factors, the symptoms of inflammation can vary from patient to patient. Some of the most frequently reported symptoms and side effects of inflammation in the body are:

  • Muscle or joint pain
  • Nerve pain (neuropathy)
  • Aches
  • Stiffness
  • Swelling
  • Bloating
  • Redness
  • Fatigue
  • Mood changes
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Weight gain

What treatments help with inflammation?

To treat the pain and other symptoms associated with inflammation as well as the inflammation itself, Dr. Sierra de Aragon may recommend photobiomodulation therapy (PBMT), pulsed electromagnetic field (PEMF) therapy, or another solution. In both PBMT and PEMF therapies, targeted energies – like light or electromagnetic energies – are introduced to the affected area(s) of the body using a noninvasive treatment system. The goal of these pain relief treatments is to stimulate the healing, repair, and regeneration of tissues and to protect the cells and tissues from further death or damage. With treatments like PBMT for inflammation, patients can achieve near-immediate relief from many of their symptoms, including pain and stiffness, without prescription medications, incisions, needles, or downtime. These treatments can also help patients to recover from injury and/or surgery more efficiently.

What treatments help with chronic pain?

Because inflammation and pain are so closely linked in many cases, treatments like PEMF and PBMT can help both to reduce inflammation and to relieve chronic or acute pain. To help discourage the redevelopment of pain and inflammation and keep you feeling your best for as long as possible, Dr. Sierra de Aragon may recommend complementing your PEMF or PBMT treatment with dietary and lifestyle modifications, increased physical activity, and other routines.
