Chronic Pain Q&A

Dr. Lee will do a thorough evaluation of your chronic pain and fatigue to uncover the underlying root causes. In his practice, Dr. Lee emphasizes natural healing and spiritual modalities to promote physical and mental well being. The diagnoses and solutions Dr. Lee emphasizes will be primarily explained and treated from an energetic and spiritual perspective. He believes that the body already has a tendency to integrate and regenerate itself when given the right energy. Dr. Lee may use medications for immediate psychiatric stabilization, but create a long term plan of tapering off medications and optimizing natural healing therapies.

Pain is your body's normal reaction to an injury or illness, a signal that something is wrong. As your body heals, you usually stop hurting.

However, for many people, pain continues long after its cause is gone. When it lasts for 3 to 6 months or more, it’s called chronic pain. When you hurt day after day, it can take a toll on your emotional and physical health.

About 25% of people with chronic pain will go on to have a condition called chronic pain syndrome (CPS). That’s when people have symptoms beyond pain alone, like depression and anxiety, which interfere with their daily lives.

CPS can be hard to treat, but it's not impossible. A mix of treatments like counseling, physical therapy, and relaxation techniques can help relieve your pain and the other symptoms that come with it.
