Chronic Pain: Understanding and Navigating Your Journey.

Chronic pain, often described as pain lasting more than three months or past the average healing time, affects millions worldwide. Its multifaceted nature means it can touch every aspect of an individual’s life—physically, emotionally, and socially. As an integrative care practitioner, we aim to provide a comprehensive understanding of chronic pain and guide you through a multidisciplinary approach towards healing.

What is Chronic Pain?

At its core, chronic pain is pain that persists. While acute pain is a normal sensation triggered in the nervous system to alert you to possible injury, chronic pain is different. It continues, often even after the wound has healed. This can be due to a variety of reasons, including, but not limited to, ongoing tissue damage or nerve damage. Did you know that stored emotions and traumas in our fascia also create chronic pain?


Symptoms and Causes

Chronic pain can manifest in various forms, including:

  • Joint pain
  • Muscle aches
  • Burning or tingling sensation
  • Fatigue and sleep disturbances
  • Mood changes, including depression and anxiety

The causes of chronic pain can be as diverse as the pain itself. They can include:

  • Past injuries or surgeries
  • Back problems
  • Migraines and other headaches
  • Arthritis
  • Nerve damage
  • Infections
  • Toxins
  • Unresolved emotions and trauma

Integrative Approach to Chronic Pain

Rather than solely focusing on symptom relief, our integrative care approach aims to address the root causes of your pain and treat the whole person—body, mind, and spirit. Here’s what you can expect:

Personalized Assessment: Every individual’s experience with pain is unique. We begin by understanding your history, the nature of your pain, and its impact on your daily life.

Multimodal Therapies: Depending on the nature and cause of your pain, we might recommend a combination of:

Physical therapies: Such as physiotherapy, osteopathy, or chiropractic care.

Mind-body practices: Including mindfulness meditation, biofeedback, and guided imagery or neo emotional release.

Key Supplements:  Medications like low dose naltrexone or our very own organic full spectrum hemp oil or balm.

Alternative modalities: Ozone therapy, red light therapy, pulsed electrical magnetic field therapy or contrast therapies like sauna and deliberate cold exposure therapy
