Your body has an amazing capacity to heal.
We help support that process.
Acute Pain. This occurs immediately after an injury - a sports injury, a fall, a car accident. The pain experienced after an injury is a message to the brain that there may be damage, or a risk of damage to tissues in the area.
Chronic Pain. Chronic pain is pain that has lasted more than 3 months. In about 85% of cases, no physical cause for the pain—such as arthritis or disk damage—can be found. Such unexplained pain is thought to be caused by changes in the brain that persist even after the damaged tissue heals. In technical terms, maladaptive neuroplastic changes drive chronic pain.
In our office we address the primary factors that contribute to pain - tissue damage, inflammation, and maladaptive neuroplastic changes in the brain.
The same area of the brain that we focus on to make changes in pain levels (the prefontal cortex) also affects stress levels, immune system function, digestion, and mood. As a result many of our patient report:
More balanced moods.
They get sick less often.
Increased sense of well-being.
