How integrative medicine can help manage pain
Upstate pediatric rheumatologist Caitlin Sgarlat Deluca, DO, explains the variety of methods she makes available through the Pediatric Integrative Medicine Center for patients from age 2 to 22 who are experiencing pain. Acupuncture, tai chi, music and art therapy, yoga, meditation and energy therapies are among the services available. Sometimes these techniques are paired with traditional medical treatment. Deluca discusses the different types of pain, what's normal and what's not, and how nutrition plays a role.
