Chronic Pain is a real, serious health condition. Individuals living with chronic pain can experience a diminished quality of life due to limited mobility, feeling unable to participate in physical activity or exercise, and often may lead to depression and anxiety.
Mindful recognizes the importance of taking an individualized approach to treating chronic pain. There is no one set course of action when treating this condition, and mindful is dedicated to finding the most effective approach for each person suffering. Treatment may include emotional support through psychotherapy, as well as medications such as: nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), acetaminophen, COX-2 inhibitors, antidepressants, anti-seizure medictions, and opioids.
“We recognize the sense of hopelessness that often comes with chronic pain. We have heard patients say that nothing seems to work and that they have given up. Mindful aims to prove to patients that they can live a normal, fulfilling life, even with chronic pain.”
