Simply stated, Chronic Pain is any pain, mild to severe, that does not go away for more than 6 months.  It may come from any source — trauma, overuse, degeneration,  autoimmune disorder, the after effects of infection, and more — and can have a devastating impact on emotional health by keeping people from fully interacting in their lives.

Thank you for your gift of time, knowledge and caring during our PT sessions.  The first thing people see when they meet me is my face and now my new improved smile thanks to you!  What a difference!

Pain is not a symptom that exists alone — fatigue, weakened immune system, deconditioning, mood changes, disability, and more come along with it.  The traditional approach to Chronic Pain is to “learn to live with it” or try to medicate it away.  Our treatment approach focuses on finding underlying causes.  You are the culmination of your history — all of the problems and traumas that have occurred throughout your lifetime.  Addressing the most significant components of that history allows opens the doorway for new healing.  This is true regardless of how long the problem has been present.  When those underlying issues are addressed, profound changes occur, even in longstanding issues.

I went to see Dave because my heart rate was faster than normal during my sports. My heart rate would go up to 180bpm while in the middle of a soccer game at least 10 times a game. I was so worried about it that I couldn’t play well. Dave worked on my neck and my collar bone area and even though it didn’t feel like much at the time, what he did was like magic. The next game I played in, I only had two episodes. The other side effect was he fixed my sweaty hands! I always have clammy, sweaty hands and they are so much drier now! Dave said that he worked on parts of my sympathetic nervous system and that had some effect on both problems I was having. I’ve seen Dave for ankle sprains as well and each time I went in I could not walk because of the swelling and pain. Each time I walked out the swelling had decreased and the pain was much more tolerable. Because I saw Dave, I was able to get back to my sports much sooner.

“I have been seen for many different issues over the years.  The most significant improvement I have made is the elimination of 20 years of chronic pain at L4/L5 without pharmaceuticals or surgery.  I am back to running, cycling, golf and skiing.  In addition Lighthouse PT has eradicated severe acid-reflux, reduced post-concussive systems, and reduced hip pain by increasing mobility & strength, which has allowed me to avoid recommended hip-replacement.  Happy to be functioning at a higher level, I couldn’t have done this without you.”
