Pain Management

Why do we feel pain? Are we doing right by taking painkillers every so often to subside chronic pain?

Judith Scheman, PhD, program director of the Chronic Pain Rehabilitation Program at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio defines pain as an “unpleasant sensory and emotional experience...when we focus only on the sensory aspect, we fail to appreciate the suffering component of the pain, which is important to recognize because pain is not what occurs at the periphery."

Pain is merely your body’s way of communicating to you that something more serious is causing trouble in your body. Every time we take a painkiller we do not resolve the cause of the pain instead only subside the pain by numbing the nerves around it creating a false sense of healing (not taking into account its side-effects).

Instead of allowing ourselves to become immune to chronic pain and compromise on our life desires to accommodate for the pain, we should address the cause of the pain and dwell deeper into healing the issue that caused it formerly.

At The Vedary, our trained therapists not only provide you with natural means of immediate relief but also aid you with posture correction to help your muscles regain their original form. We also take advantage of the healing powers of traditional oils by using authentic methods to apply it on the troubled area to heal.

Some common occurrences of chronic pain are arthritis, joint and muscle pain, slip disks and spondylitis.
