For Information: wellness@chihealthcare.org or 301-355-2030

Chronic pain and inflammation is preventing many of us from living a vibrant, active life. If you or a loved one has experienced this kind of pain, you know that it interferes with many aspects of who we are and who we can be. It limits our ability to be fully present for our family and friends and decreases our productivity and fulfillment at work. Pain, when prolonged, often leads to anxiety and depression.

CHI Health Care wants to be a part of the solution to break this cycle of pain and debilitation. We now offer an effective, evidenced-based, viable solution for pain management that is natural and holistic.

This integrative program will help to disrupt the cycle of pain for us and those that we love. You will experience the best high-tech, high-touch natural methodologies available today; and, throughout the program, you will receive individualized, medically-supervised care from our highly qualified team of CHI providers. You will also learn powerful yet practical techniques for self-care that will help you to manage pain at home.

 

While there are many ways natural remedies can relieve all kinds of pain, this Program is designed specifically for those suffering pain due to osteoarthritis, unresolved sports injuries,  joint/muscle pain after surgery, or other musculoskeletal injuries.
