Chronic Pain

Are you tired of being in PAIN? Are you thinking enough is enough and it's time to get out of pain? Or maybe you think this is just the way it is going to be.

Let us get you out of pain.

Tens of millions of people in America suffer from chronic pain. This is pain that lasts six months or longer. Chronic pain can sometimes be mild or sometimes be excruciating, continuous or episodic. For some people it is merely inconvenient or in others the pain is totally incapacitating.

When you have chronic pain, the signals of the pain are active in your nervous system for several weeks, months, or even years. This can take a physical and emotional toll on you.

Chronic pain can start with an infection or injury. There could be other causes of your ongoing pain. For some people, chronic pain can seem to start for no reason at all.

Do you have stress, depression, fatigue, anxiety and anger from your chronic pain?

These negative feelings may actually increase the pain. This causes a cycle of pain. Even the body's most basic defenses can be compromised. There is evidence that suggests unrelenting pain can suppress your immune system. Because your mind and your body are connected, effective treatment of chronic pain requires addressing psychological and physical aspects.
