Stress relief is physical and mental

Stress is a normal part of our lives. Just about anything can bring it about, and it can affect almost everything about us. It has also been shown that our experience of stress, especially when we consider our stress to be overwhelming, can cause our physical sensations, such as pain, to become even more intense and, at times, completely debilitating.

 

Stress Relief Is Physical and Mental

With this in mind, the best chronic pain programs have begun to incorporate mental health services into their treatment programs in order to help patients learn how to cope with their stress. The work that psychologists and patients do together can allow patients to experience stress without intensifying their pain or letting it ruin their lives. We achieve this by focusing on the importance of your thoughts and how you think about your stressors. More importantly, we take the time to look at how you think about your pain. Our services include:

 

  • Assessment testing: MMPI, POP2, BAI, BDIII, P3

  • CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy)

  • Cognitive testing

  • Functional psych evaluations

  • Pain psychology

  • Referral to appropriate psychiatric services as necessary

  • Vocational counseling

  • Biofeedback/Neurofeedback
    AVE (Audio-Visual Entrainment)
    HRV (Heart Rate Variability)
    VRT (Virtual Reality Therapy)
