Types of Treatment
Chronic pain, or persistent pain, is pain that lasts for weeks, months, or years.
A 2011 Global Industrust Analysts, Inc. reports estimates that over 1.5 billion people worldwide suffer from chronic pain, with the incidence rate increasing with age. For some, chronic pain is the result of an injury, like a sprained back, or an ongoing problem like arthritis.
For others, chronic pain occurs in the absence of a past injury. Common chronic pain complaints include headaches, low back pain, arthritis pain, or neurogenic pain (pain resulting from damage to peripheral nerves or to the central nervous system itself).
At Confluent PT, we are dedicated to overcoming these disabling disorders so our patients can get back to the life they love. We focus on two key elements in treating pain: education and movement. The combination of therapeutic neuroscience education (TNE) and movement has shown significant evidence in helping people with persistent pain.
The newest weapon in the fight against opioid addiction is virtual reality (VR) technology that can help ease patients' results and provide alternatives to taking excessive pain medication. This is a groundbreaking new platform, developed by BehaVR, which is drastically improving patients' results and experiences with chronic pain.
Not only does using a virtual reality headset as part of an integrated PT session provide a visual and engaging experience for the patients, but the psychologically powerful medium also helps patients learn and retain new research about chronic pain and how to deal with it.
