How can hypnotherapy help with chronic pain?
Anyone with persistent or chronic pain will understand how debilitating and frustrating it can be to live with.
The most prevalent forms of continual pain are contained within the joints and especially the spine and lower back area; something which is also difficult to identify by a medical expert, normally leading to incorrect or delayed diagnosis. If left untreated, the pain can become so severe that people have a lot of difficulty with normal everyday activities around the home. They might avoid going outside.
This issue can lead to feelings of loneliness and isolation, affecting marriages and preventing you from holding a job or enjoying life the way you should.
