We want to help our patients who are experiencing pain with an effective and individualized approach.
Believe it or not, pain is usually a helpful sensation. It is our body’s way of warning us that something is amiss and needs to be addressed. When you cut your finger or step on a nail, your pain is what helps ensure that you note and solve the issue and prevent further damage. However, when your pain is ongoing, continuous, and not caused by physical harm, it is not only problematic, but in some cases, debilitating. Here at Complete Rehab, we are here to help all of our Winston-Salem, North Carolina patents who are experiencing varying types of nerve pain.
Nerve pain can manifest itself in many forms. For some people, they might experience mild symptoms, such as a constant tingling or numbness. Others experience burning pains, and still others experience a sharp, stabbing pain. No matter your frequency or level of pain, we are here to help you at Complete Rehab. We believe that the best way to treat pain is to look at the entire individual and not just their symptoms. It is this compassionate and individualistic take on rehabilitation that has enabled us to be extremely successful with our patient outcomes. We not only care for the individual, but we also create and execute treatment programs that are specific to your needs.
How to Help a Loved One with Chronic Pain
It can be both confusing and frustrating to know someone who is dealing with chronic pain. At Complete Rehab, we often have our patients tell us that they wish their loved ones better understood the journey they are on to minimize or eliminate the pain they are experiencing. Here are a few tips for how you can help a loved one with chronic pain.
- Communicate: Most people who have chronic pain really do want you to ask how they are doing. Don’t assume that every day is the same or feel like you need to tiptoe around the subject. Let them know you care and support them. Staying silent may be perceived as a lack of concern, so feel free to ask them how they are feeling and be willing to listen if they’re having a rough day.
- Don’t Give Health Advice: While it is natural to want to share medical advice, the best thing to do is trust that they are getting the care they need. The other thing to understand is that although something worked for you or for someone whose article you read online, that doesn’t mean it will work for them.
- Be Patient: When someone with chronic pain is unable to do something you hoped they would, be gracious about it rather than appear frustrated or disappointed. We guarantee they feel bad enough about it already, and they need to be focusing on getting better instead.
- Ask to Help: Let them know you are there for them if they need assistance. Often, someone with chronic pain struggles with tasks that you can help with, such as preparing a meal, going shopping, or watching their children from time to time so they can get to appointments.
