"It helps to think of a person with chronic pain as a car with four flat tires. Our expectation is: all we need is one medication, such as NSAIDs, or treatment that will take away the pain, but it only puts air in one of the tires. What else do you need to get back on the road? For each person the necessary combination of therapies and interventions will be different. We need to work with our health care providers to find out what we need to fill up our other three tires, such as physical therapy, counseling or nutritional guidance.” - Penney Cowan founder of The American Chronic Pain Association (ACPA).

Chronic pain can cause immense frustration directed at our own bodies. Remember to stop and be kind to yourself, speak to yourself using words that soothe and heal.

"The physical pain associated with chronic illnesses is often excruciating and intense - but chronic illness also takes an emotional toll on multiple levels...With chronic diseases affecting so many people, it's important to educate ourselves so we can support the next friend who comes to us for support during an extended illness."

Chronic pain and lack of sleep go hand-in-hand. This year's ‘Sleep in America’ poll (National Sleep Foundation) suggests some steps for better sleep hygiene, a behavioral intervention, including “establishing a regular routine for going to bed and getting up; creating a pleasant sleeping environment with a comfortable bed, a quiet environment, and a pleasant temperature; using the room only to sleep (no eating, reading or watching TV, tablets, or any activity that can interrupt the sleeping process – the idea here is to associate your bed with sleep). Do you have additional suggestions that have assisted you in getting a better night's sleep? #chronicpain  +National Sleep Foundation

"Why do we hurt? Do we actually experience pain, or is it merely illusion? In this video, Lorimer Moseley explores these questions, and position the pain that we feel as our bodies' way of protecting us from damaging tissues further." via +TEDx

Radiant is committed to working with each patient to determine if our therapy is the right option for your chronic pain. We are able to determine how your body will respond in our first, complimentary treatment. In our most successful cases, Radiant therapy replaces a treatment plan that isn’t providing adequate results.

+NPR recently did a story, “Veterans in Wisconsin Try Acupuncture as an Alternative to Narcotics." As we grow in the U.S., we want veterans like Larry Burt to be able to find a Radiant Pain Relief Centre nearby. Today, we have offices in West Linn, and Beaverton, Oregon. Contact us for more information or tell a friend experiencing chronic pain. Our therapy is typically effective, even when other treatment options have failed.

This month Time Magazine’s cover article, “Why America Can’t Kick its Painkiller Problem” refers to the use of opioids in long-term pain management as a “National Epidemic.” Linked below is the National Pain Report’s take on this story and the controversy around this complicated topic.

“The article doesn’t speak much to the issue of chronic pain, for which many prescriptions are written, other than to say 100-million people suffer from it and a quarter of them says it is severe enough to limit their quality of life, according to the Institutes of Medicine.” –National Pain Report

Here, we stand behind Radiant Therapy as a non-invasive, non-drug-based therapy solution to explore and we also understand that each chronic pain sufferer is unique in how they respond to various pain management options. What are your thoughts on this discussion?

We're excited to announce that our second location, in Beaverton, Oregon, is now open! It is located at 1600 SW Cedar Hills Blvd, south of Hwy. 26, and nearby the medical cluster anchored by Providence St. Vincent Medical Center. Dr. David Farley, our medical director, will oversee care at this treatment center.

“We have treated patients with chronic pain resulting from injuries, diabetes, cancer, fibromyalgia, complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS), and other diseases. The resulting reduction of pain that Radiant’s therapy produces on all these conditions make it my priority to provide accessibility to as many patients as possible, as soon as possible,” - Dr. Farley

“Both of my thumbs are worn to the point where they are pinching nerves. Just to pick up my grandsons caused terrible pain. Since having some treatments at Radiant Pain Relief Centres, I’ve had zero pain in my right hand and maybe a level one or two pain in my left hand. It’s been six months now, and Radiant Pain Relief Centres has changed my life as far as enjoying my hobbies, working on my antique cars and especially being able to play with my grandsons.” – Dennis, Radiant Pain Relief Centres patient

“Before I had the chronic pain, I was an extremely social person, but I found the pain was too intense for me to even carry on in conversations. I had worked as a registered nurse for 30 years in hospitals, but after my second back surgery I found myself unable to do my job any longer and really unable to do much as far as daily living activities. After going to Radiant Pain Relief Centres, my quality of life is better. I still have some pain, but Radiant Pain Relief Centres has taken away a lot of the pain that I have in my leg from nerve damage. Now I have days where I can go out and do more, like have lunch with a friend. After treatments I’ve found that when I start to feel the pain come on, it goes away faster than prior to treatments.” – Lauri, Radiant Pain Relief Centres patient
