Mission Statement

Our mission is to help people live pain free lives.

Description

Chronic Pain can be debilitating. Although often unrelated to a medical condition, the persistent pain is perceived, real, persistent, and can be seen in the MRI. Pain can be visceral or deeply somatic, nociceptive or neuropathic, and deeply effects lives. Painful conditions such as fibromyalgia, lower back problems, rheumatoid arthritis, peripheral neuropathy, and cancer may be eased by movement and massage. It can be treated with behavioral therapy, but is often deeply ingrained in the brain's structures. Exercise can reduce the production of cytokines, which play a role in inflammation and pain. Opiates and other medication over time exasperates the pain.

The Organization for Pain Free Living (OPFL) researches and provides real solutions, therapies, talks, and workshops to help people understand their pain and help them and their spouses take steps that reduce the frequency and severity of chronic pain. A new protocol SET which combines cardiac gated electrical stimulation with operant therapy has been created and is currently being tested. OPFL will also provide equipment, videos, and other support to underserved populations such as senior citizens and people undergoing physical rehabilitation.
