Far too many people spend their lives suffering from chronic pain. At Brooks Pain Rehabilitation Program, we offer both hope and help to those in need.
Those with chronic pain typically state that pain controls their lives. They are often physical deconditioned, depressed, hopeless, anxious, frustrated and fearful of doing even normal activities. Chronic pain affects virtually every part of life, even relationships with other people. Empowering the patient is a key to successful treatment of chronic pain.
At Brooks, we are deeply committed to providing treatment that addresses the medical, physical, emotional, functional, family and interpersonal problems that are affected negatively by those suffering with chronic pain and disability.
So take heart – there is a dedicated team of professionals who have been working together to treat patients with chronic pain for more than 25 years. At Brooks Pain Rehabilitation Program, our staff of eight professionals has more than 100 combined years of experience treating people like you.
Our goal is to offer a program of intensive rehabilitation with the primary goals of reducing pain, improving mood, enhancing physical function and ultimately helping you control the pain instead of the pain controlling you. This comprehensive program includes physical reactivation, manual physical therapy, biofeedback training, education classes, psychotherapy emphasizing cognitive-behavioral intervention and medical management from a physician and nurse. To fit all of this in, the program meets 6 hours/day, 5 days/week and may extend up to 5 weeks.
Common pain conditions we treat are:
|Back Pain||Headaches||Neuropathic pain|
|Joint Degeneration||Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)|
|Disc Degeneration||Myofascial pain||Sprain/strain|
We also can provide weaning from opiate (narcotic) medications if they are no longer effective or have become problematic. As can be seen by our Outcomes, patients who have completely weaned from these medications have actually experienced an average 40% reduction of pain.
We have been recognized/accredited in outpatient/inpatient pain rehabilitation by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) for more than 25 years.
