Our healthy lifestyles program on the Point this month focuses on causes of and relief from pain. Anyone who’s experienced acute or chronic pain knows it can impact all aspects of life. Pain can cause irritability and depression, prevent us from getting exercise, proper sleep and even eating a healthy diet.
Dr. Daniel Sheehan, Staff Physiatrist at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospitalon Cape Cod joins us to talk about an integrated approach to identify and treat the root causes of pain. We also discuss the latest advances in mediations and regenerative medicine which can help prevent pain from re-occurring.
