Mindfulness Techniques – A Valuable Tool in The Therapist’s Toolbox
Patients on extended use of pain medications are looking to you for faster results to reduce their pain and increase their functional ability, thus increasing the interest in alternative treatments.
As interest in drug-free pain and anxiety management increases and reimbursement rates for treatment decrease, the research on neuroplasticity and mindfulness to improve patient's outcomes has come to the forefront.
Learn how mindfulness techniques can be a powerful and valuable tool in your toolbox for helping patients increase awareness and decrease limitations on functional gains, including guidance for appropriate documentation.
