Sircle Pain Clinic's wellness and pain professionals understand that chronic pain can have more than one cause. It can be the product of muscle strain, work-related stress, nerve damage, sleeping posture, or any combination thereof. As such, these complex issues can't be solved with a simple, one-sided approach, such as taking pain medication or convincing yourself you're a robot that does not feel pain. Instead, staff members use the Sircle program, drafting a measurable milestone recovery path based on the client's health history and other information they find during consultations and video otoscopy assessments. The resulting treatment plans address issues one step at a time and could include weekly visits, neuromuscular re-education, and relaxation exercises. During these programs, clients could achieve their personal goals over a span of 12 weeks or more, whether it be overcoming muscular pain or boosting their overall health with improved nutrition.
