Common Misconceptions about Chronic Pain
Last month we talked about how chronic pain can interfere with your life: you’re no longer your normal self as you’re occupied with struggling, coping, dealing with constant pain.
The quality of our life is determined by the condition of our health and the relationships that we have.
We’ve talked about how chronic pain is associated with anxiety and depression. People in constant pain tend to isolate themselves more which then adds to their depression –which directly affects their relationships and essentially takes away from the quality of life.
According to pain rehabilitation specialists, “pain is whatever the experiencing person says it is, existing whenever he says it does.” But consider also that how well (or poorly) a person accepts and copes with the pain is directly related to their perception of pain.
Pain management treatments are most effective with those who have positive expectations of benefit before starting.
