Chronic Pain Rehabilitation
Calgary, AB: Just for Pain
Chronic pain is invisible, except for the scars it can leave on the lives of those it affects over time. The emotional and social aspects of chronic pain complicate recovery and add layers of symptoms on the underlying physical pain. These complications are best dealt with by a mental health professional -- preferably one experienced in treating chronic pain.
Chronic pain rehabilitation focuses on strategies to help regain quality of life. These typically include techniques to improve pain coping and mood. But chronic pain rehabilitation also provides insights into your pain experience and proposes strategies for solving problems, the bi-products of chronic pain.
While it’s only human to hope that the pain will improve, it’s possible, too, to rejoin life... even living with chronic pain . My work in Calgary, AB with persons disabled by chronic pain or illness takes place through both individual and group programs -- including virtual groups -- using proven tools and techniques to help improve sleep, increase functioning, re-build self-esteem and relationships, and cope with the depression and anxiety that complicate functioning.
Conditions associated with chronic pain include (but are not limited to):
- Neuromusculoskeletal pain (includes pain from nerves and/or muscles)
- Pelvic pain
- Diabetic neuropathy
- TMJ and other joint pain
- Myofascial pain
- Rotator cuff disease
- Autoimmune diseases
- Traumatic injury
Whether or not you choose to participate in one of the group programs, the Living With Chronic Pain Workbook provides an "owner’s manual" to help you better understand and cope with your pain experience. A variety of paper and pencil exercises and "how-to" instructions provides insights and strategies for living well, even though you may not feel well.
