Welcome to VPS

HELP FOR THOSE WITH ANXIETY AND/OR CHRONIC PAIN!!! 
There is no panacea for chronic pain. Many things can help. Mindset matters. I found a blog by a lady who has a "glass is half-full" mindset named Sue Falkner-Wood. There are tools that are helpful such as relaxation techniques. Having someone direct you on how to appropriately use those techniques can be helpful. I've produced an CD/audio that can be helpful as part of a comprehensive management plan. Here's the story of one patient:

Again, many of my patients have found it helpful to use these techniques in conjunction with other pain management treatment. I thought the first patient with chronic pain that I taught this technique to found this very unhelpful, and she discharged herself from the hospital and went home resigned to live the rest of her life in her wheelchair.

A couple of months later I saw her in the outpatient physical therapy department walking with a cane. She came over to me and thanked me for making the audio (CD or MP3). I asked her what had happened. She stated that she decided to not just sit in her wheelchair in pain any more. Then she used the audio and pain management tips to help her get through physical therapy and to walk again. Yes her foot was still in great pain, but she had learned how to manage the pain and not need as much medication to cope with the pain as she became more functional in her day-to-day life.

At vpsproductions.com you can learn about these resources. Similar sites on the internet for professionally guided mp3 downloads start at $9.50 or more. Remember you get it for $3.99!!!

This is the every day low price for both downloads for anxiety reduction and pain management. If you have chronic pain and anxiety you need only buy "Outsmarting Pain."
