Oftentimes, our pain can come from a situation or experience.
Empower Physical Therapists work with you to see if you will be able to improve by working through what may have occurred that caused your pain to start.
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? Over the years you may have been told no physical findings could be found on MRI and/or X-ray.
Here is your solution! First you need to schedule a Pain Evaluation with Empower: Persistent and Chronic Pain Treatment & Coaching to see if there is something missing regarding the “why” behind your pain and/or the specific treatment that was given from others. Through our the process of the Evaluation and Assessment, 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. Over the years you may have been told no physical findings could be found on MRI and/or X-ray. This No 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. The brain can have a memory of pain and through a Pain Neuroscience Education program, which Empower offers, you can learn how to desensitize the nervous system
and return to a normal work schedule and improve your personal relationships.
