You do not have to live in pain. You may have tried modalities like heat or ice or TENS. You may have tried every pain medication available over-the-counter or by prescription. You may have tried various types of injections. You may have tried a surgery, or worse, more than one. Chronic pain is due to an extra-sensitive nervous system and the way in which the brain is processing information from those nerves. We can teach you how to change all of that, educating you about your symptoms and teaching you how to re-gain control over your life.
Studies show that patients who have been educated about the neuroscience of pain actually experience less of it and are able to function better. Our physical therapists will explain to you why it is that you hurt, and we will do it in such a way that anyone could understand it. We will give you concrete steps to take to get you out of the cycle, that cycle in which you consistently over-do it, then have to lay low for days or weeks to recuperate only to find that the next time you try to accomplish 50% less, you get 100% of the same result.
We will encourage you that there is hope to get back to the way things used to be. Modalities, medication, injections, and surgeries all have their place. But you need to understand why you have pain in order to truly treat it.
