Pain Recovery Program
For most people experiencing an acute pain event, acute pain and inflammation usually resolves in a matter of days or weeks, but can last up to three months.
At the three-month mark, damaged tissue should have undergone full healing and tissue regeneration, and be well into the remodeling phase.
The inflammatory process should be completely resolved and no longer causing swelling or pain seen in the first few weeks of injury.
Chronic pain, unlike acute pain, is a false alarm.
In general, pain that persists beyond three months is considered chronic; however, no tissue repair needs to take place.
The cause of chronic pain starts with a change in how the nervous system interprets signals, and that transition may begin when inflammation fails to resolve, and all phases of tissue healing fails to be completed.
Think Twice About How You Treat Pain
The conventional approach to pain care in the US is broken, and there is no single therapy that will provide a solution
Currently, 75% of opioid misuse begins with prescription medication, and misuse is of epidemic proportions. Recently the FDA and the federal government have declared opioid misuse a national emergency, calling for more regulation and a push to incorporate alternative therapies.
The solution to chronic pain is a different approach.
A way to offer hope to those in pain is to help them regain function as quickly as possible through a comprehensive intervention and prevention approach.
Part of the solution requires shifting focus from symptom-centered to patient-centered, championing a new approach to the growing problem of pain and inflammation.
Our core philosophy is simple: The human body has an amazing ability to maintain its own health when provided with the right signals.
When harmful signals are decreased, and appropriate signals are increased, cells and organ systems can create a healthy outcome and maximize the body’s ability to decrease pain.
Before you reach for an over-the-counter or prescription medication to resolve your pain, consider this: What if there was a powerful medicine available that didn’t require a prescription or a trip to the drugstore?
The human body has an amazing ability to maintain health when provided with the right signals. Think about it: The choices you make each day send signals to each of your cells that either promote health and healing, or damage and disease.
Your food choices, physical function, and psychology have the greatest impact on your pain, inflammation and quality of life.
