PPD Training, Experience and Approach
In individual therapy we explore the direct link of the mind to the manifestation of pain in the body. Traditional forms of pain treatment such as physical therapy, pain medications, anti-inflammatory medications and injections, surgery, acupuncture, chiropractic care, or massage, do not address the underlying emotional issues that are causing the pain in the first place. All that these other forms of pain management can give you is temporary relief. The most immediate relief for clients upon receiving the PPD/TMS diagnosis is recognizing there is nothing structurally wrong with their body. They are therefore encouraged to go about their daily activities of life without giving into the pain.
