Do you have weekly, but random, bouts of neck and migraine pain that when at it’s worse, can keep you from doing nothing but trying to cope with the symptoms at home? Does this also disrupt your work schedule and sometimes create tension with loved ones? Have you also seen many healthcare professionals including Physical Therapists, Chiropractors, Orthopedic Surgeons, and Primary Care Providers to name a few, without much improvement? Lastly, have you over the years been told no physical findings could be found on MRI and/or X-ray?
Through the Empower process of evaluating and listening to your story, a long history of symptoms may be apparent that could have started many years ago, even from a car crash you suffered in high school for example. Not having any physical findings can actually suggest that the pain you are suffering with might be coming from the brain, which is still real pain, but is produced for different reasons and by a different part of the brain. The brain can have a memory of pain and through a Pain Neuroscience Education program, which Empower offers, in Denver pain clinic you can learn how to desensitize the nervous system and return to a normal life and activities, including work and socializing with family and friends.
