Chronic pain is ongoing and persistent, lasting at least three months and sometimes many years. Our physical therapists and functional pain managers take a holistic approach with each person suffering from ongoing chronic pain. Pain is not simple. If it was then it wouldn't be an epidemic in America. Many factors contribute to pain. A common term that doctors use is biopsychosocial. Pain affects our bodies, our minds, and our social life. Conversely, our bodies, our minds, and our social life affect our pain. At Rainey Pain & Performance, we teach the science of pain, self-management strategies, identify activities that are safe and not safe to do, and anything that you need to live an optimal life.
