Professional Evaluation Services

  • Chronic pain evaluations to asses the depth of pathology and the role of emotional and biopsychosocial variables in the maintenance of pain.
  • Evaluations of psychological appropriateness for intrathecal pumps, spinal neurostimulation units, and gastrointestinal bypass procedures.

  • Medication / Opioid risk and dependency issues.

Psychotherapeutic interventions, such as psychotherapy, hypnotherapy, biofeedback and psychopharmacology have a positive effect on reducing the onset, exacerbation and maintenance of pain conditions. They can speed the rate of recovery, promote immune system functioning, diminish emotional suffering and decrease dependency on elevated levels of pain medications. Anxiety, depression, mood swings, adjustment reactions, sleep disturbances, PTSD, stress and sexual dysfunction secondary to pain or medication side effects can also be reduced.
