We are neighbors! I know from experience there are many fine alternative medical practices in our area, I have a friend searching for help this was for inoperable cancer.
I consider everything we try that works for pain even a little bit, should be added to our personal 'tool box' of pain remedys. You may never be opiate free, but you can certainly lower your dosages by quite a bit by mixing other modalities into it.
Things I have heard of that helped but have had no direct contact with include accupuncture and auroma therapy. I have personally had relief, although never enough for it to be the sole remedy, with massage and water therepy, including no impact shallow water areobics. Herbal remedys have helped in the past, but please remember some of these are strong and can have interactions with your prescribed western medicines, please do not take any herbal medication without the knowledge and approval of your doctor and pharmacist.
Good luck, and remember, dont see it as a failure if you are unable to find a non western medicine that will work for you as a cure all, anything you do that adds to your 'tool box' is a big help and will lower your need for everything else.
