We all experience pain.
The choice we have as humans is how we respond to the pain. We can either choose to wallow in the pain or we can choose to live life, despite the pain.
For many people with chronic pain, a vicious circle can form between pain and suffering.
Research has shown the psychological and social distress associated with pain is often more important to the pain experience as the perceived pain severity.
Think about it. We don’t go to the doctor just because we have a certain level of pain intensity on a numbered pain scale. We go because the pain is affecting our quality of life.
