Understanding – A revolutionary approach to managing Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is one of the worst challenges a person has to face in life. You’re trying to function with a pain level that would incapacitate most people but you “look normal” and current diagnostic tests don’t show a specific “cause”…so nobody believes you. If someone asks you how you’re doing and you’re honest, they either say “I know how you feel” and tell you about their problems, or they listen, pause and try to say something positive like “at least you can walk!” So you stop talking about it.

The healthcare system also beats you up because it doesn’t know what to do with you. You’re misunderstood and doctors try to make you go away by giving you something to take the edge off (like medications). You need so much more than that but there’s nobody to turn to. So you just hide your pain and push on… and you become so used to this and so good at this that nobody realizes that there’s something wrong. It’s lonely and exhausting.

Let us help you heal.

Treating Chronic Pain by building RESILIENCE

Resilience is the ability to positively adapt to a challenge. It’s about changing the way you see your pain and how you deal with it. But if you have chronic pain, you likely feel stuck because there’s been previous or life-long negative situations and patterns that have led you to where you are today. You want and need a change but sometimes you feel overwhelmed by all the obstacles in your life.

Building resilience begins with having a calm and safe environment that allows for healing. We provide a non-judgmental, safe and supportive space for you to look at your life, so you don’t have to pretend that things are OK when they’re not. More importantly, we guide you to explore resources in your life to create a safe environment outside of our clinic. Then we help you develop the skills you need to increase your personal resilience. We will not give up on you because we see you as someone who deserves to be helped even when you feel insignificant. We will continue to coach and support you as you help yourself…however that may look.
