If your life or the life of someone you love has been hijacked by pain, you are not alone. Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined. In fact, one out of every three U.S. adults lives with chronic pain triggered by arthritis, chronic fatigue syndrome, disc problems, fibromyalgia, headaches, sciatica, or other causes. Chronic pain can rob you of your vitality, confidence, friendships, intimacy, and even your will to live. This course will provide a tried-and-true framework for coping with chronic pain caused by most sources. Among a multitude of helpful solutions and approaches presented, we will cover creating a pain management program, discuss why opioids fail to work for chronic pain, and stress the importance of building a health care team that combines professionals, caregivers, and other forms of social support. Strategies for Pain Management will give you tools to create and implement your unique pain management plan with your physician, plus guide you through physical exercises and a meditation practice. You will no longer need to postpone life until your pain goes away.
