Chronic pain is categorized by symptoms lasting more than 6 months. 100 million Americans suffer from this condition which significantly affects quality of life including activity restriction, sleep disturbance, and often depression and anxiety. Freedom therapists understand the complexity of this condition, incorporating a multifaceted approach to care. Although we realize it’s common to have multiple diagnoses when chronic pain is present, frequent conditions we treat include:
- Low Back Pain
- TMJ or Facial Pain
- Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
- Pelvic Pain
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Consider these facts about chronic pain:
Migraines have a global prevalence of about 15% or one billion people. Associated U.S. healthcare costs are estimated at $17 billion, with $15 million in indirect costs such as lost work time! Freedom experts understand the complex nature of headaches and how to treat them. Our cutting edge and evidence assisted treatments will help tame your head pain so you can get back to the things you enjoy.
A staggering number of people experience back pain. Right now roughly 8% of American adults are suffering from chronic low back pain. Why so many? Freedom therapists understand the reasons, which may include poor posture, inflexibility and inadequate muscular support. We offer solutions to manage and prevent chronic back pain, so you can focus on the best things in life.
Nearly 1 in 10 women will experience pelvic pain in their lifetime. And women with pelvic pain are 66% likely to also have orofacial pain, or pain in the jaw and face, often called TMJ. If this is you, Freedom offers help for both problems, under the same roof. Our therapy team includes specialists in Women’s Health and Temporomandibular Disorders (TMD) including jaw, face, neck and head pain. Don’t continue to suffer when we can offer a solution!
40% of women suffering from chronic pelvic pain remain undiagnosed after three medical consultations. Women with temporomandibular disorders receive a diagnosis, on average, four years after symptom onset. Don’t wait any longer!
