These alternatives are listed as 4 categories in the article: Natural products, practitioner-based, mind and body, and whole medical system. The investigation, led by Taiyna C. Clarke from the NCHS, shows the percentage of people using alternative pain management regardless of having musculoskeletal pain. They also investigated the amount of people using alternative pain management for specific areas of the body effected by musculoskeletal pain.
