SpineZone Treats Behavior/Addiction
Pain Medication, Alcohol, & Your Body
So, why is a team of physical therapists concerned about alcohol use and pain medication choices? Did you know that prescription painkillers can actually increase your sensitivity to pain? And that alcohol use can increase your body’s inflammatory response and make chronic pain worse?
Optimum health is all-encompassing, and at SpineZone, we’re continually breaking new ground.
In addition to your orthopedic care and physical therapy program, better sleep guidance, nutrition coaching, and mindfulness & meditation counseling, SpineZone offers another unique channel for achieving your best outcome: Being connected with our HABITS Program.
Being connected… to our bodies, our thoughts, our goals, our values. It’s our natural state of being. But when stress, or anxiety, or chronic pain hits, we disconnect. We seek to relieve, or numb, our stress and pain. We can do this with medications, with alcohol, with food, by isolating, or even by living in dread or denial.
SpineZone’s HABITS Specialist helps our patients identify patterns or habits that disconnect us and move us away from the wholebeing health we all want. We help our patients reconnect with the values and priorities that matter most.
- Concerns about medication use? Our discreet team can meet with you and help decide if weaning off may be right for you.
- Troublesome interactions between alcohol and inflammation, pain, and poor sleep? We have resources for help with scaling back drinking to decrease chronic pain.
- Negative thinking, low impulse control, or troubles with compulsive behaviors? Often uncomfortable to talk about in some spaces, but not here.
- Stress management, anxiety, depression, isolation, loneliness, or feeling disconnected in general? We hear you, we see you, and we know how to help.
Our programs are easy to access because we offer so many avenues for help.
Webinars on Zoom, 1:1 sessions with our HABITS Specialist, email support, and a weekly HABITS group.
Our focus on modern pain science will empower you to make the best decisions about your own healing process.
