Pain management

Description

Pain management combines physical, emotional, intellectual and social skills to lessen the suffering for a person with chronic pain.  Although it’s unlikely that managing your pain will eliminate it entirely, it will certainly help you regain control and enhance your quality of life despite that pain.

Pain management techniques depend on the nature and severity of the pain. Patients may also experience more than one type of pain, which may mean that a combination of approaches is required.  Techniques include muscle relaxation, breathing relaxation, activity pacing and strategies to address anxiety and overcome negative pain-related thinking.

Pain management allows patients to discover their own role in taking control of their pain and their life. Pain management can provide a route to a life that circumvents the distress and disability that pain may otherwise cause.
