Live More. Struggle Less.
It's possible to live well, despite the pain.
The path to pain recovery starts with education.
Pain is an experience with biological, psychological, and social factors, not just a number on the pain scale.
Just treating chronic pain biomedically with pills, injections, and surgery isn't enough. We need to treat the whole person with a multidisciplinary approach using the biopsychosocial model as the standard of care.
It’s often the struggle with chronic pain that’s the worst part of having pain, not the pain itself.
The struggle makes it easy to become distressed and feel like a victim.
To minimize the struggle, it’s helpful to come to terms with the pain as our “new normal” – accepting the pain as a part of life with no immediate magical cure.
It’s easy to become pre-occupied with chronic pain. To feel distressed, to give up, and become a victim just based on how much attention we give it.
The good news - it's possible to turn
down the pain volume and change the pain.
We can train our brains to change the way we think, feel, and behave around chronic pain so we're not so worried about it. And we can learn techniques to actively self-manage the pain.
Imagine being in a car with your chronic pain. Where is the pain?
Is pain behind the steering wheel - determining where you go and what you do? Or are you driving?
You can change your pain experience and other related symptoms by taking control.
