What Is Integrated Healthcare?
Mind & Body
We understand that chronic pain is more than a physical sensation. It affects every aspect of life, including mental and emotional health. For this reason, our providers may collaborate with psychologists or psychiatrists. In fact, chronic pain and psychiatric disorders are closely connected. By working together to address the mind and body, our patients have the opportunity to live their lives to the fullest.
When neurons are damaged or malfunctioning, symptoms related to thought processes’, cognition, mood and behavior will arise. Sometimes the dysfunction is reversible through a process called synaptic plasticity, which allows a neuron to heal and begin to function properly. Many of the treatments we use enable neurons to recover and begin to function correctly by encouraging synaptic plasticity.
