HELP STOP VETERANS PAIN
Chronic pain, or pain that lasts for more than 12 weeks, is common among the approximately 20 million veterans in the United States today. More than 50% of veterans receiving care at Veterans Health Administration (VHA) facilities across the country are affected by the condition.
Jon Mandell, Patient
After being in a back brace for 3 months, I found that my hip had compensated for the immobility of my back. It had
become as painful as my back. I attended six weeks of physical therapy with not much progress being made on my hip
I attended weekly treatments of medical massage with Arrika for about eight weeks.
She was very good about listening to my concerns regarding my pain and addressing them. She used different
techniques to stretch and release my hip joint. At physical therapy, they attempted to stretch and strengthen the area but
the hip still felt so tight and painful. Arrika was able, through her various techniques, to relax the area enough to then
effectively stretch it and reduce my pain.
Not sure what would’ve happened if I had not found Arrika when I did. I appreciate all the help that she gave me.
According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, more than five Arizonians die from opioid overdose every day.
At Medi+ssage, we are working to validate the use of medical massage as a legitimate treatment for pain management that will supersede opioid prescriptions and combat the state’s ongoing opioid crisis.
Medi+ssage Health & Outreach helps people suffering from chronic pain live happier and healthier lives by redefining pain management healthcare and advancing knowledge.
