The facts

An estimated 105 million Americans suffer from chronic pain.  You don’t need to read the latest research to know that living with pain impacts every area of your life: the ability  to enjoy interpersonal relationships, engage in physical intimacy, earn a living, take pleasure in life—even to do simple tasks like washing dishes, vacuuming the house, or cutting the grass.  Whether you’re experiencing arthritis, nerve pain, back pain, or fibromyalgia, current research indicates the most effective treatment for chronic pain is to integrate cognitive-behavioral interventions into your life as part of a comprehensive pain management program (which may or may not include pain medications prescribed by your physicians).  These cognitive-behavioral interventions can play a vital role in decreasing your pain distress and disability.  These strategies are the key to you regaining control of your life.

Why see a health psychologist
The first question that usually comes to mind if you’re referred to a health psychologist for chronic pain is, “does my healthcare provider think my pain is in my head?”  In all likelihood, the simple, emphatic answer is a resounding NO!  A formally trained health psychologist is specifically educated to manage and treat medical conditions.  What a health psychologist specially trained in chronic pain can do, is help you learn how to take back control of your life, using research-driven treatment that can enhance the quality of your life.

Four important questions to ask yourself

  1.  Is pain impacting your relationship with loved ones and friends?
  2.  Has pain affected your ability to earn a living?
  3.  Does pain influence how much  you enjoy life?
  4.  Are you in control of your life?
