Starting Chronic pain counseling

What is Chronic pain counseling?

Chronic pain counseling in Chesterfield helps victims of chronic pain manage the mental and emotional challenges that accompany it. This is important because chronic pain can cause depression, anxiety, insomnia, and have other negative effects on one's well-being.

How does Chronic pain counseling work?

Chronic pain counseling works by targeting an individual's unique challenges and needs. Dependent on those, it can help someone improve their sleep, enhance relationships with others, change negative thinking patterns, relieve anxiety, regain confidence, and more.

Is Chronic pain counseling conducted in person or online?

Chronic pain counseling with our therapists at Thriveworks in Chesterfield, VA is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Chronic pain counseling last?

Chronic overwhelm counseling with our Thriveworks Chesterfield therapists can last for a few weeks, months, or longer. It depends on the exact needs of the client as well as the severity of those challenges and other needs or preferences.

In the medical drama House, there are life-threatening ailments that plague the fictional characters. And the expert Dr. House—along with his team—usually finds irrational ways to treat them right before the character dies. Dr. House is an especially unique character, as he suffers himself from a blood clot in his leg which destroys nerves and muscle tissue leaving him with chronic leg pain. Throughout the show, one can see how his chronic pain affects him. He dreads his daily tasks, struggles in his personal relationships, and fights to find some kind of relief.

“We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

While the chronic pain in House is fictional, it paints the picture of a real struggle that 50 million Americans experience. Just like Dr. House, you may feel depressed, dread everyday tasks, and sense the tension in your relationships. Chronic pain can be a burden that weighs on you, but there are treatment options out there that can help you find relief and regain hope. Counseling for chronic pain presents an alternative solution which goes beyond the physical to help you heal. Here at Thriveworks, we offer many treatment plan options for those with chronic pain. Discover what the counselors and therapists at Thriveworks Chesterfield can do for you.

Am I Experiencing Chronic Pain? What Are the Symptoms?

Chronic pain is taxing on your physical, mental, and emotional health. The symptoms can vary from person to person, but those who suffer with chronic pain commonly experience:

  • Burning pain
  • Muscle aches
  • Fatigue
  • Sleep problems
  • Mood fluctuations
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Irritability

You might experience chronic pain as a result of another condition, such as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, or rheumatoid arthritis. In any case, these symptoms can prove harmful to your overall health and wellbeing, and it’s important you seek treatment as soon as possible. So, if you are experiencing any of the above symptoms, reach out to Thriveworks. Our counselors and therapists are experts in their field and they want to help you heal.

Why Should I See a Professional for Pain?

Over the last 10 years, there has been a shift in helping patients manage their chronic pain, and counseling is one of those options for a variety of reasons:

  • Chronic pain can cause depression or anxiety
  • Chronic pain often causes negative thoughts
  • Chronic pain can cause sleep issues or insomnia
  • Chronic pain is sometimes anticipated, which increases the pain
  • Chronic pain can become a burden on your marriage and other relationships

All of these can be dealt with in counseling for chronic pain. Our skilled, caring professionals can develop a treatment plan to help you manage and minimize the pain you are experiencing.

I was so nervous about going to therapy being that I’ve never foresaw a reason or need to go… I had encountered a very traumatic accident at work and it left me confused and depressed about my career path! I can honestly say if it weren’t for Ariane I’d still be left battling confusion and and depression from my accident. I’ve suffered anxiety and panic attacks from the incident but Ari has given me helpful tips to get through my tough times when I’m experiencing those attacks. I’m just so grateful to have encountered a very experienced and understanding counselor who genuinely has my best interest at a full recovery at heart!

This was my first therapy experience. I was in desperate need for help. Jenee was my therapist for a year and I can’t overstate how incredibly helpful she has been. She met me where I was mentally and helped me to find myself and healthy/productive ways of dealing with my everyday struggles. I’m a completely different and happier person thanks to her hard work.
