Defeating Pain With Lifestyle Changes
At the Southwest Florida Free Pain Clinic, we are dedicated to helping our patients defeat their pain. We work hard to give you the tools you need to treat the condition causing your pain so that you can return to life. However, we realize that is only part of the story. There are things you must do to defeat your pain! Otherwise, the treatments we provide will not work and you will continue to live in pain.
We know that inflammation is a big part of your painful condition. Whether you have an acute injury or a chronic painful condition, inflammation is an underlying cause of your pain and disability. There are definitely things that cause inflammation in your body, or allow it to continue. If you can make the necessary changes, your inflammation will greatly decrease and so will your pain! In addition, you will be healthier, have more energy, be in a better mood, and need less medical treatment for preventable diseases in the future.
Toxins must be eliminated. Pain patients do not get better if they use tobacco or alcohol. You must stop smoking and drinking in order to have any chance of healing. All illegal drugs must be stopped immediately, including pot. These poisons create inflammation and pain.
