Guide to Managing Chronic Pain

Many of us in Halifax, and all through the province of Nova Scotia, are dealing with a more invisible challenge: chronic pain. It is a persistent problem that affects many people in our community. Women between the ages of 35 and 65 years old are particularly affected. It can affect every aspect of life, turning simple tasks into difficult challenges and tingeing moments of happiness with discomfort.

Chronic pain is a broad term that covers a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, migraines, fibromyalgia and back pain. The road to relief was traditionally paved with medication and therapy. These methods have varied degrees of effectiveness.

At One to One Wellness we think that these methods can be valuable but also add another layer of healing: education and empowerment.

Understand Your Pain and Conquer it

Knowledge is power. This is especially true when it comes to managing chronic pain. One to One Wellness is committed to educating patients about their condition. Understanding the complexities of pain and how it occurs will help individuals take proactive measures to manage their symptoms. This approach creates a feeling of empowerment in patients, turning them from passive recipients of health care to active participants on their wellness journeys.
