Chronic pain can feel like it is taking over your life. It can feel as if you are no longer in charge, rather every decision is made by your pain. You may have the desire to participate in activities, but are fearful your pain levels will increase, causing you to have to rest for days afterwards. It is also possible you have lost motivation altogether to do things you used to love to do. You are irritated much easier than before, and your family and friends may also be impacted by your changed mood.
You have likely been to many medical appointments and tried many different types of treatments to alleviate your pain. Therapy for chronic pain can help increase your quality of life. We focus on decreasing suffering and living a life you enjoy again. We individualize your treatment and goals to help you live a life guided by your values. We also incorporate relaxation and mindfulness techniques to help us get through some of the more difficult pain days or stressful medical appointments. If you can relate to this, schedule an appointment with Dr. Donnelly today.
