People go to a doctor because they can't control what is ailing them, they are essentially rendered helpless. Dealing with stress, psychological, physical and emotional. is critical to healing. Teaching a patient how to control their lives, (taking control of circumstances in life that render them trapped, helpless, overwhelmed and out of control), has a huge reduction on somatic pain. Regaining control with direct healthy behavior and habits, based on values and purpose is hard work but results in regaining control of their pain and more importantly their life! Eat well, move well, think well.
I am a chiropractor who focuses on rapidly helping my patients overcome the spine pain that dominates and dictates their lives. I achieve this by spending time with my patients to properly diagnose their conditions, closely monitoring their response to care to ensure positive outcomes and by educating them on what they can do on their own to ensure that the pain doesn’t return. So many patients are hindered with pain and it’s my mission to help play a role in improving their quality of life. As a Chiropractor, I treat patients with musculoskeletal pain of somatic origin. After three decades of practice, I have come to realize that all pain has a psychological component that is much overlooked.
Stress is something many of us are familiar with. Between work, relationships, family, uncertainty in world affairs and ever-present political discord, stress never seems to subside. Unfortunately, stress can be extremely damaging to your health — especially if you suffer from chronic pain. For twenty-five years, The Health Resource Network and health professionals across the U.S. have come together to promote awareness about the causes and treatments for stress, an often misunderstood and under diagnosed health epidemic.
