Far too many people spend their lives suffering from chronic pain. Sometimes, pain management is simply not enough. At Brooks Pain Rehabilitation Program, we offer more - we offer Pain Rehabilitation to provide hope and help to those in need.
Those with chronic pain are often physically deconditioned, depressed, hopeless, anxious, frustrated and fearful of doing even normal activities. Family relationships suffer; social and recreational activities decline; and pain seems to go on forever. The Brooks Pain Rehabilitation Program has been offering comprehensive treatment for those with chronic pain for over 25 years.
At Brooks, we are committed to offering medical, physical, emotional, functional, family and individual treatment for those suffering with chronic pain and disability.Our comprehensive program includes individual counseling, coaching, education and treatment from multiple therapist all working with one goal – empowering the patient to achieve their highest level of recovery and function.
Our team of dedicated professionals have been working together to treat patients with chronic pain for more than 25 years. The multidisciplinary team includes a physician, nurse/case manager, psychologist, physical and biofeedback therapist. Individual team members routinely speak at national conferences to educate others on optimal treatment of chronic pain. In addition, team members often write for national publications and newsletters.
Pain Rehabilitation Outcomes
The primary goals of reducing pain, improving mood and enhancing physical function ultimately leads to helping you to control the pain instead of the pain controlling you. By learning and doing things differently, our cognitive-behavioral pain rehabilitation program helps patients achieve excellent outcomes. Our outcomes reflect the success that other patients have experience both physically and emotionally.
When needed, the team can also assist in reducing opiate medications. Although helpful initially, chronic use of opiate medications can lead to undesirable side effects regarding memory, thinking, bowel function, mood and increased pain called hyperalgesia. Opioid induced hyperalgesia is a condition where opiate medications actually increase sensitivity and pain perception. Once opiate medications are reduced, patients routinely experience up to a 40% decrease in pain. Our outcomes after opiate weaning also show improvements in function and mood. See outcomes
