MIND, BODY AND SPIRIT

If pain affects body, mind and spirit, then treatment must address these three pillars of the human condition.

[Youth and adolescents] suffering with chronic pain are twice as likely to suffer from depression and anxiety as those without. What starts in your lowever back eventually eats away at your soul. You enjoy your loved ones [and friendships] less, and you are less enjoyable to them.
