Loss of Autonomy

Chronic Pain Management Programs to Prevent Loss of Autonomy 
Don’t Let Severe Nerve, Neck, Joint or Back Pain Take Away Your Independence!

One of the most common fears associated with chronic pain is the loss of autonomy, loss of the ability to manage your own life choices.  Continuous pain in your neck, back, joints or nerves can limit your mobility causing you to be dependent on others for your daily activities. This loss of independence often affects self- esteem and may even cause depression, anxiety, anger and frustration.

Severe pain that persists for more than six months is classified by the medical field as chronic pain.  It affects more than 10% of adults. Ronald N. Parris, MD is well-versed in therapeutic treatments that provide pain relief.

Advanced Therapeutic Treatments for Continuous Pain Sufferers  

Chronic pain conditions are known to cause sleeplessness, anxiety, mental distress or anger. This may trigger or intensify other health issues threatening your ability to function independently.

Pain relief medication is not the only effective and safe way to reduce your suffering. There are alternative treatments that can relieve continuous pain sufferers from the acute discomfort that they endure often on a daily basis.
