Validate, Educate, Empower and Advocate
You can expect the following:
You will be validated. You will feel heard. There is no wrong way to explain your situation.
You will be informed. This may include some definitions and current understandings regarding pain and how it can affect the body.
You will be given the option to make yourself an active participant in your rehabilitation.
You will feel supported on your journey. You are not alone.
