for Behavioral Pain Management
The pain is real...don't ever doubt that.
- Definition of Pain:
An unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage, or described in terms of such damage.
- Definition of Chronic Pain:
Pain that continues long after the tissues have healed, yet pain signals remain active in the nervous system.
It is impossible to separate your physical sensations from your emotional ones. Chronic pain can lead to depression, anxiety, and fear. Along with the emotional effects pain brings, physically your muscles start to weaken and your body becomes deconditioned. With learning how to cope with your emotions and how to move correctly, it is possible to live again!
