What is chronic pain?
What is chronic pain? There are numerous sources of chronic or persistent pain, such as back pain, headaches, and rheumatological conditions. Chronic pain is often associated with decreased functionality, loss of work, disability, and poor quality of life. Pain and disability are influenced not only by injury and structural abnormalities; but also by psychological factors (e.g., thoughts, attitudes, beliefs, behavioral patterns, environment). These psychological factors can play critical roles in the management of chronic pain and can be addressed in therapy.

We use cognitive-behavioral strategies as well as mindfulness and acceptance-based strategies to help you manage chronic pain.
