Shatter Your Diagnosis: How to Overcome Your Medical Diagnosis
MoveU's Shatter Your Diagnosis Campaign aims to help our audience identify the difficulties and shortcomings of receiving an accurate chronic pain diagnosis, the problems that arise once you have a diagnosis, and how to overcome it and the pain effectively to start living your life again!
A medical diagnosis can save your life when its something with clear and defined symptoms like breast cancer, which most cases have specific parameters. Diagnosing chronic pain on the other hand, can be like a doctor trying to run a test on why your fingerprint is unique. It just is, and there's only guesses as to why.
“A diagnosis is really just a description. It’s not an outcome. It’s not a destination. It’s not your future. A diagnosis is not forever, and a diagnosis can change depending on the medical professional you visit. Sometimes it’s nothing more than a guess, an opinion, or a temporary obstacle.
Shots, pills, procedures, and surgeries should be reserved for times when more conservative methods fail. They should not be the first-line treatment. There is no quick fix. Those things come with risks and the results are often short-term. A shot or a pill only works until it wears off. Surgeries can lead to more surgery and procedures.
The WAY you respond to your diagnosis matters. You can let it limit you, drag you down, and define you, or you can use it as motivation and fuel.”
Chronic pain actually has the power to change our brain's chemistry over time. Often, chronic pain sufferers can be completely healed of their previous injuries and claim to still feel pain. This is why traditional interventions like NSAIDs, opioids, and surgery can’t address the underlying issues with chronic pain.
Way More To Come!
Forget the diagnosis. Forget the prescription. Stop looking for external solutions without doing some internal work first. How do you think? How do you move? How do you breathe? Are your thoughts, your activities your relationships governed by pain? Medical interventions will always be an option and will only improve with time. Get curious, take ownership, and explore all the possibilities to heal that you have available to you.
