Persistent/Chronic pain

Chronic pain is pain in any area of the body that has lasted for more than 3 months.  Sometimes it can be the result of a former injury; sometimes, a specific diagnosis may be associated with it (e.g..  fibromyalgia, degenerative disc disease). This pain may be impacting your life physically, emotionally, and socially.  Some come to believe they just have to accept and live with it.

At Creative Therapeutics, untangling the web of chronic pain is one of our specialties.  In our evaluation, we carefully look at what is mechanically happening in the area of discomfort in the context of what is happening in the whole body.  We consider the overall health of your body for the ability to heal.   We use a variety of hands-on techniques to make you more comfortable while we explore what types of exercise will help you re-build your function.  All along in the process we provide you with knowledge and information to help you understand why this is happening in your body and what you can do about it.

We provide an atmosphere for you to improve your health over time.  Our classes offer a way to deepen your learning experience by providing avenues to reduce stress, improve your awareness of your body, and find new ways to improve your strength and flexibility.  Improvement in the level of pain is often a result.

We work alongside many excellent professionals and recommend a team approach for some of our clients based on the problems we encounter.  We have gathered many resources to help those with complex pain conditions because often it takes approaching the problem from many angles to find a solution.

Ultimately, it is our commitment to being of service that drives us to work hard to help find solutions.  We stick with you!
