You may have your first treatment sessions after the assessment.
What should I bring on my first visit?
Please bring a piece of identification, insurance plan information and any applicable medical files such as a referral form, and list of current medications
What are the risks of living with pain?
Chronic pain often accompanied sleeplessness, inactivity, irritability, depression, and perpetuation of pain. Improperly treated short-lived pain may become lifelong chronic pain. Pain may also raise your blood pressure and elevate levels of adrenaline in your body which is damaging to many important organs in your body.
How can I prevent developing chronic pain and stay healthy for years to come?
You or your loved ones may be at risk of developing chronic pain and symptoms without even realizing it. Research shows that most people don’t realize that their pain has become chronic and as a result they don’t treat it as they should. This complicates things even more as our body tries to come to terms with our limitations.
What is an interdisciplinary approach to pain and health and why is it more beneficial than multidisciplinary approach?
This simply means that several healthcare professionals are working in sync to engage in complex and complicated problem solving to help you optimize your health. This is especially important when we are dealing with limited resources such as limited insurance coverage or limited time allotted to care due to busy lifestyle. Multidisciplinary approach involves several people working in isolation with minimal communication occurring between them, which ultimately leads to duplication, misdiagnosis and perpetuation of problems.
