We will work with you to make sure that not only you feel better, but that you create a life where you continue to improve.
Our coaching offers our patients the ability to work one-on-one with our therapists to deliver life goals and aspirations to keep you pain free and moving forward.
Are you suffering with shoulder and neck pain, which keeps you from your upper body/shoulder workout fitness class? Maybe you have been suffering for over two years, and have seen every healthcare provider imaginable, and even had neck injections that not only did not help, but made your pain worse. What should you do now?
The answer for you could be Pain Neuroscience Education and/or the Biopsychosocial Model for pain management. As part of the program at Empower: Persistent and Chronic Pain Treatment and Coaching, understanding the Pain Neuroscience Education model is one of several goals of the treatment process to help improve how the brain is interpreting potential painful stimuli. Education and coaching on several nervous system desensitization treatment choices and a plan can be put together from the help of your healthcare professional coach from Empower, like Dr. Eric Avery, PT, DPT. The ultimate goal for all pain suffers entering our clinic is to Empower them to manage and/or eliminate pain suffering with an individual plan and program, such as the following: a daily program of Expressive Writing, Yoga, Tapping Meditation, and Graded Exposure exercise program, for example.
During the program at Empower, you can share your story, have a physical exam completed, and start on your first day, treatment via the use of our Virtual Reality BehaVR system. During your journey at Empower, you might discover the onset of pain came after a negative emotional event, which can cause up-and-down fluctuations of your pain, which may be associated with changes in stress levels and not changes in physical activity. The Virtual Reality education sessions, which can be one of many treatment options here at Empower, can improve your mind-body-connection and help relieve your mind from going crazy and down this rabbit hole of despair, which can come-on from not knowing the truth about your pain
