Herbs: Medicinal cannabis if it is legal in your state is an alternative to narcotic pain medications. Also eating a more alkaline diet my help. Acupuncture. Deep meditation. There are various herbs but this is not my specialty. Recommend following up with a pain management specialist and/or homeopathic specialist. There are also doctors of natural medicine possibly in your area.
