Pain Management

Life in Balance Counseling Pain Management Counseling services are able to help reduce and for some eliminate pain by using the mind-body connection pathway to harness the power of changing the patient’s experience of pain.    People often do not realize that when the body feels pain, their thoughts and emotions are influenced by the pain experience and the amount of pain.

Depression and anxiety make pain worse, yet pain causes depression and anxiety. Stress makes pain worse, yet pain causes stress. Lack of sleep makes pain worse, yet it is very difficult to sleep when you have pain. Psychological treatment can help with managing the effects of pain.

Life in Balance Pain Counselors can provide the psychological treatment plan of care to help you.  This plan can include pain pathway education, coping skills and evaluate and treat origins of pain and its impact on your day to day functioning.
