In brief: Alternative therapy

Medications and other interventions that aren't thought of as traditional 'pain pills' can be helpful.
Medications like various anti-seizure or anti-depressants can be tried as well as alternative therapies such as accupuncture, reiki, or guided exercise therapy are often helpful for many patients living with chronic pain.
