Biopsychosocial Therapies

Are you or your loved ones experiencing…

Strain in your relationships with family or friends?

Depressed mood or anxiety from the effects pain has on your life?

Strain in Relationships: Unfortunately, chronic pain often puts a strain on interpersonal relationships. Being poorly understood, chronic pain is even more perplexing to family members and/or friends. Also, the effects pain has on your ability to perform activities may be difficult to communicate to loved ones. At From Pain to Wellness, we encourage the participation of family members and friends in your program, so they can appreciate the progress you are making, and get positive feedback from the various health care professionals at our center. We also help you develop your communication skills.

Depressed mood or anxiety: It is estimated that 50-70% of people with chronic pain suffer from some degree of depression and/or anxiety. Medications may be necessary, but in some cases proper counseling, dietary modification, exercise and practicing one of a number of stress-management tools, may adequately treat these conditions.

A BIOPSYCHOLOGICAL APPROACH

Study: A Biopsychological Approach to Chronic Low Back Pain

Biopsychologists study how the brain and the rest of the nervous system determine what we perceive, feel, think, say, and do this may prove to be the ultimate challenge for the human brain.

A biopsychologist uses an eclectic combination of theories and research from many different areas (psychology, biology, physiology, pharmacology, and anatomy) to better describe, understand and predict behavior. Biopsychologists seek to discover how the various phenomena studied by other neuroscience researchers produce psychological phenomena such as perception, learning, memory, emotion, and language.

If you’re suffering from depression and/or anxiety, we can help.
