Standards of care to manage chronic pain includes the development of self management skills, but for many people, professional guidance is helpful to know what questions to ask, where to go for support and little things you can do to reduce your pain intensity and improve daily functioning.

 

Much of the educational information we provide and reinforce to our clients can be found on the Fraser Health website,  Manage Pain http://www.fraserhealth.ca/health-info/health-topics/chronic-pain/manage-chronic-pain/manage-chronic-pain.  I highly recommend reviewing the relevant subheadings which include: medication usage, support groups, exercise, depression, sleep and even financial resources.  There are links to helpful videos and local resources.  I hope you find this website useful in your journey to develop your own self-management toolkit to manage your pain.
