Six Reasons to Market Your Psychotherapy Practice to Pain Patients
Six Reasons to Market Your Psychotherapy Practice to Pain PatientsNovember 25th, 2017 by Cindy Perlin
1. There are a lot of pain patients.
100 million Americans, about 1 in 3, are in chronic pain. There are more people in chronic pain than have cancer, heart disease and diabetes combined.
2. They really need you
Pain patients are being ill served by conventional medicine. The most common treatment, opioid drugs, has caused many to become addicted, the rest to become dependent. Now that the opioid crisis has reached catastrophic proportions, many pain patients have had their medications reduced or discontinued without being offered any other treatment. Many have become tolerant of the drugs and no longer get relief. Others are being given other dangerous or ineffective drugs. Surgical interventions, especially for back and neck pain, fail often and often leave the patients worse off than they were before. Failed back surgery syndrome is now a common diagnosis. Many pain patients are desperate for alternatives.
3. You have skills that can really make a difference
Do you use any of the following techniques in your practice: CBT, relaxation training, meditation, biofeedback, neurofeedback, hypnosis, guided visualization, energy psychology, EMDR or Somatic Experiencing? All of these therapies have been shown to reduce, and sometimes eliminate, chronic pain.
4. Helping them is very rewarding
When you help a pain patient who has suffered for years or decades to find relief, they are very grateful and you will have earned your place in heaven.
5. Niche marketing generally works better than marketing to the general population
When you market to a general population saying you can help everyone with their problems, patients are less attracted to your service than if you say you specialize in a problem they have.
6. You can market to pain patients easily and inexpensively through the Alternative Pain Treatment Directory
