Chronic pain changes your life. It consumes valuable energy and physical stamina to work through daily activities while managing pain. However, physical therapy can address and improve the musculoskeletal aspects of chronic pain problems longer term. We can help you understand how to shape your goals so that small steps are acknowledged and realistic expectations are set as treatment ensues.
However, Chronic pain management also includes more than just treating the physical component directly. Your pain affects your mind and spirit as well. The recent shift toward a major reduction in the use of opiods and medications may have altered the pain management regime you had in place. So it has become necessary to look elsewhere…research supports the use of meditation as an adjunct to your journey to being “better.”
