Pain Support Program
- Are you suffering with chronic pain?
- Is pain negatively impacting your life?
- The Weeks Pain Support Program is here to help.
The goal of the Weeks Pain Support Program is to improve your quality of life by reducing the incidence and severity of chronic pain. Pain affects each person differently. Our emphasis is on treating the whole person as an individual with a multidisciplinary team approach and multiple modes of treatment to improve overall health and wellbeing.
Our goal is to help and empower you to:
- optimize functioning and quality of life
- reduce suffering and emotional distress
- manage overall health
- identify personal values and to set and achieve goals
- develop skills to manage ongoing pain, and
- see how personal experiences can contribute to pain
Our integrated team-based program works with you to better manage your pain. First, we will review your pain history and develop a care plan together. You will then meet with behavioral health and physical therapy specialists at regular intervals. In addition, a specially trained case management registered nurse will identify resources available to help you meet your health and human service needs. We are here to listen and give you the time needed to understand and manage your pain.
