Many people struggle with acute or chronic pain. Medication, surgery, or injections are not always enough, and sometimes are not even an option. Psychological therapies have high impact in regards to managing pain (chronic or acute) and should always be considered as part of a comprehensive pain management treatment plan. Thorough pain assessments will be conducted at your appointment, and psychological therapies selected with your pain reduction goals in mind. In addition, nutritional and integrative medicine techniques for pain relief will be reviewed. This information can also be shared with your family physician for collaboration purposes, as well as referrals and recommendations for additional/adjunct treatment options.
