A brief description of treatment options and how they are selected.
How we can help
When someone first develops pain, the pain itself may be the only issue.
However, over time the person may start to have work problems, there may be difficulties within the family, and they may withdraw from social and leisure activities. They may develop sleep problems, depression, anxiety, or they may use alcohol or drugs to cope. Over a relatively short period of time the person’s body can also change, so they become tighter, weaker in certain areas, or they may avoid certain movements that cause pain. All these issues make the problem bigger than just the pain itself.
We teach you how to function with pain by teaching you strategies to better deal with your pain on a daily basis.
The research on the treatment of chronic pain heavily supports a team-based approach. This is because chronic pain is complex and is best treated by addressing all the issues that impact the person in pain.
Our team is a highly experienced, understanding, and committed group of professionals. We are all located together in the same practice and meet regularly to discuss your treatment. This means that you can be sure that all your teams are working together on the same goals.
We have regular case conferences where we review our treatments and progress. The whole team contributes and each team member provides different perspectives on how to help. This ensures all options for your treatment are fully considered.
