Living with chronic pain presents layer upon layer of life challenges. It would be difficult to fully grasp the difficulties posed by chronic pain conditions without having experienced it yourself. Long-term pain can affect not just your physical abilities and comfort level, but your mood, concentration, memory, anxiety levels, financial security, relationships, sex life, sleep, self-esteem … and the list does not end there.
Therapy Can Help- Because pain has an emotional component and impacts so many other areas of life, comprehensive treatment for pain usually includes seeing a medical doctor who specializes in pain management, a physical therapist, and a psychologist who specializes in pain management. Unfortunately, the vast majority of psychologists have little to no training in how to understand and treat chronic pain. A well-trained pain psychologist can help you learn ways of calming your body, quieting your mind, identifying thought patterns that make your pain worse, improve your ability to manage stress, and help you educate those around you as well as further your education about how to best live with pain. A vital part of this therapy can come through training in mindfulness meditation, which has been the focus of my research and my area of expertise. Through this process, many people have developed a greater sense of acceptance and control over their pain.
