It’s a stressful world we are living in. In spite of our best efforts, COVID still rages on. The impact of the virus extends far beyond the lives it’s claimed. We’ve been in uncharted territory for a year and half now, and there’s no end in sight. Unfortunately, no one feels the impact of stress more than someone who suffers from chronic pain.
Even the minor stressors of life can profoundly impact the cycle of pain, so it’s no wonder so many are feeling the effects of these unprecedented times. That’s why it’s more important than ever to stay on top of your pain, as much as you possibly can.
During these crazy times, I realize it might be tempting to skip VECTTOR treatments, but now more than ever it’s important not to do so. Take a look at the graphic below to see the starring role that stress plays in the chronic pain cycle.
In fact, I urge my patients who are in remission to consider dusting off their VECTTOR units, even if you can only get in a couple of treatments a week. Just remember it’s better to be proactive rather than reactive. I can assure you that, whether you know it yet or not, STRESS is busy doing everything in its power to proactively contribute to your pain cycle.
Stay safe out there and, as always, feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns.
In good health and healing,
The VECTTOR Therapy System is indicated in the United States for the treatment of chronic, intractable pain and for the treatment of post-surgical, or trauma pain. Any other use of the VECTTOR Therapy System would be considered off-label use.
