Living with chronic pain is debilitating

Living with chronic pain can be both physically and emotionally taxing.

Pain is not just a physical sensation, but a complex experience that affects every aspect of your life. You feel like you are falling apart, confused about who you are and where your life is headed. All you want to do is get back to the person you used to be and the things you used to enjoy without the burden of chronic pain tying you down.

You don’t have to go through this alone.


What Exactly Is Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain is defined as persistent pain and discomfort that lasts for six months or longer. Unlike suffering from a broken bone or wound, where you expect to improve and return to normal; chronic pain can persist even after the initial injury has healed. Or perhaps the problem causing the pain does not have a straightforward solution and you feel like you have nowhere to go; you are told you just need to accept it and move on. The medications you are taking only provide short-term relief and you don’t want to overmedicate yourself and feel like a zombie.

You may feel exhausted, have difficulty sleeping, or struggle to find a comfortable position. Emotionally you might experience feelings of grief, sadness, worry about the future, or even self-pity; believing that you are a burden on others. You are barely able to do anything, yet you still feel completely worn out.

While medical intervention can help relieve chronic pain, psychological treatment can have a significant impact on your healing process. At The Coping Resource Center, we help you understand and manage the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that come as a result of chronic pain, helping you cope more effectively and reduce the intensity of your pain.

How Do I Know If I Have Chronic Pain?

Chronic pain encompasses so many different underlying medical conditions that it can be difficult to come up with a single definition. However, if you are suffering from pain in your body that will not go away, and causes distress and interference in your life; you are likely struggling with chronic pain.

While the experience of pain differs from person to person, some common symptoms include:

Chronic pain can manifest differently for each person, and symptoms can vary in intensity and duration. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, please reach out to us today so that we can help guide you in effectively managing them and moving forward with your life.


How Chronic Pain Therapy Can Help

Our approach to chronic pain therapy is comprehensive. We provide you with a thorough assessment to get a better idea of which approaches will best fit your needs. We use a combination of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), mindfulness, and relaxation strategies to help you better manage your pain and move forward with your life.

Through this process, you can develop healthier coping strategies, regain control over your life, and ultimately reduce the power chronic pain has over you.

Chronic pain therapy can help you:

In therapy, we help you develop practical strategies to manage your pain in a way that makes the pain feel predictable and controllable. Through learning to moderate your activity levels, engage in relaxation, or other coping strategies, you will feel like you have the tools you need to navigate your day-to-day life.
When people are in pain it is normal for them to worry about when the pain will end, or whether or not they will have to live with the pain for the rest of their lives. Using techniques such as cognitive behavioral therapy, you will be able to combat these worries and distressing thoughts commonly associated with pain and find peace of mind.
We give you the resources and strategies to manage the stress linked to pain and everyday life so that you can experience a sense of calm, and mitigate symptoms that could exacerbate pain. We want you to feel ready to tackle the stress, anxiety, and worry that are often associated with pain.
We teach you strategies that are proven to help reduce the intensity of your pain and help you live a more fulfilling life. Be better equipped with a variety of tools that you can use to distract yourself from pain when it flares up. Learn relaxation techniques such as meditation, mindfulness, visualization, and others to lower the level and intensity of your pain.
Surprisingly many of the activities you enjoyed before being diagnosed with pain are still within reach. With the guidance of your therapist, you can develop a plan to get back to the things you used to enjoy. Your therapist will help you to think outside the box to come up with solutions to help you engage in activities without exacerbating your pain. You will reconnect with what matters to you to build a fulfilling life. You will once again feel productive and fulfilled.
We offer a safe and supportive space for you to explore your emotions and experiences related to chronic pain without judgment. By addressing fears and anxieties, therapy encourages a sense of tranquillity and inner peace allowing you to nurture resilience and achieve improved well-being. Through therapy, you can develop coping mechanisms to handle chronic pain symptoms and attain a sense of calm.

Questions About Chronic Pain Therapy

No, getting psychological help for long-lasting pain doesn’t mean your pain is all in your head or caused by mental issues. We believe chronic pain usually comes from a physical problem. Sometimes even after the medical issue has resolved the pain is still there. While the pain is likely from a physical cause, we know psychological factors can affect how bad it feels. Our aim is to tackle those factors to help you find relief and manage the pain long-term.
Often pain and mood affect each other. This means that pain can cause a lot of distress in your life, and when you are in distress your pain can feel worse. Stress, anxiety, sadness, depression, anger, and frustration all make you feel worse both mentally and physically. By learning ways to improve your mood, you can feel better overall and decrease the intensity of your pain.
Usually, treatment lasts for about 10-12 sessions, but it can be different for each person depending on what they need and how fast they want to go. Our treatment is flexible, so we can adjust it based on what works best for you. It’s important to keep going regularly to get the best results. At first, we’ll meet every week, but as you start feeling better, we can meet less often. The goal is for you to finish treatment feeling better and ready to move forward. But if you ever need to come back for a check-up or extra support, we’re here for you.
Pain is a necessary function of the body that alerts us to any tissue damage. Without pain, we would not know when we are sick or hurt. The goal of this treatment is to better manage pain that is no longer serving a purpose and to help you build a richer, fuller, more meaningful life.
Our team is specially trained to teach you strategies that have been scientifically proven to help those struggling with chronic pain get relief, improve their mood, and enhance their quality of life. While there are no guarantees, we feel confident that if you are willing to incorporate these strategies into your daily routine you will start to see improvement quickly.
