Pain, and management of said pain, are a growing concern among Americans age 65 and older with studies finding that 53% of senior citizens report having bothersome pain that alters their daily activities, and this imposes an enormous burden on health care. The emotional distress caused by the impact of chronic pain can lead to anxiety and depression, and our therapists are highly experienced in helping our patients find the right coping mechanisms to assist them in leading more fruitful lives.
Depending on the severity of your chronic pain, your therapist will determine the correct treatment plan. A therapist will support you through your negative feelings, pinpoint areas in your life that you may wish to change, help you set realistic goals, and give you tools to identify and prevent future bouts of anxiety and depression. Your therapist will custom-tailor your sessions to what you need at that moment.
