Pain can be a debilitating condition, but there are ways to keep it under control. Whether your pain is from arthritis, cancer treatments, fibromyalgia, or an old injury, you need to find a way to get your pain under control. What's the best approach to do that?

The first step in pain management is scheduling an appointment with your doctor to determine the cause of your pain and learn which pain management approach is often the most effective for it. There are many different pain management options available.

People who are fearful of pain, depressed, or anxious may experience pain differently, and perhaps more severely, than someone who has pain but isn't experiencing those other emotions. What the brain perceives is indisputably modifiable by emotions.

Pain Management: Treating Mind & Body: It is omportant to approach pain both physically and emotionally and addressing "people as entire human beings.” So while chronic pain medication can be effective and important for pain management for many people, it isn't the only tool available when it comes to pain treatment, and it shouldn't be the only tool that's used.

Therapy can be aimed at both the mind and the body.

  • Physical Therapy is a very important part of any pain management program. Pain can be worsened by exercise that isn't done correctly, and a physical therapist can tailor the right exercise regimen for you. Proper exercise slowly builds person’s tolerance and reduces.
  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy allows people to "learn and have a better understanding of what the pain is from, and what they can do about it. This therapy is really about understanding the role of pain in your life and what it actually means for a person.

A variety of approaches and modalities can help people deal with both the physical and emotional parts of pain:
