Nurse Practitioner, Heather Metz is here to share how your pets can do more for you than you think.
Did you know that having a pet can help manage your chronic pain? Pets can provide companionship, which helps to decrease stress, anxiety, and depression, all of which negatively impact your pain. Pets also keep us active and they rely on their human counterparts for their care, which can distract us from our pain.
