Chronic Pain Clinic

 

Long Term pain can affect a person in many ways and can include:

-Fibromyalgia

-Acute Pain

-Chronic Pain

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is a commonly used approach in the treatment of chronic pain. It aims to help individuals manage their pain by changing their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that are related to pain.

CBT for chronic pain involves several key components.

 

First:

 it helps individuals develop a better understanding of the connection between their thoughts, emotions, and pain sensations. This involves identifying and challenging negative or unhelpful thoughts and beliefs about pain, such as catastrophizing or overestimating the intensity or impact of pain.

Second:

CBT helps individuals learn and develop coping skills to better manage their pain. This may include relaxation techniques, distraction strategies, activity pacing, and problem-solving skills to address pain-related challenges.

Third:

CBT helps individuals set and work towards specific goals related to their pain management. This involves setting realistic and achievable goals and developing a plan to reach those goals. This goal-setting process can help individuals regain a sense of control over their pain and improve their overall functioning and quality of life.

CBT can have a positive, effect on reducing pain and improving functioning in individuals with chronic pain.

It has been shown to be effective for various types of chronic pain, including musculoskeletal pain, fibromyalgia, and chronic headaches.
