Embracing Complementary Health Strategies: A Shift in Wellness Paradigms

In recent years, there has been a notable increase in the implementation of Complementary Health Approaches (CHAs) among the U.S. adult population. The prevalence of individuals utilizing these non-conventional health modalities has soared from 19.2% in 2002 to 36.7% in 2022. This uptrend is not limited to one or two techniques; it encompasses a variety of practices such as yoga and meditation—both of which have seen substantial growth in adherence.

Parallel to the broader acceptance of CHAs is a specific rise in their application for pain management. Statistics reflect an upsurge from 42.3% in 2002 to 49.2% in 2022 amongst adults embracing alternative methods for alleviating discomfort. Every CHA tracked within this scope—including yoga, which demonstrates a prominent increase, and chiropractic care, noted for its high frequency of use—indicates an overall shift towards natural and non-pharmacologic pain relief solutions.

Several factors contribute to the growing inclination towards CHAs. This movement aligns with a national uptick in the prevalence of pain. Clinical trials have furnished evidence that validates the efficacy of certain CHAs in managing pain, which, coupled with their incorporation into pain management best practice guidelines, has augmented their utilization. Additionally, an earnest effort to curtail opioid dependency has pivoted the focus to nonopioid alternatives, further bolstering the adoption of CHAs.
