Living with Chronic Pain

Chronic Pain Strategies

Coping involves a conscious effort to solve a problem in order to master, minimize or reduce its impact. Coping strategies can help individuals with chronic pain deal with their pain on a daily basis. However, they should not be confused with treatments. Coping skills aid in pain management, helping individuals with chronic pain live their best lives.

Coping skills and strategies are highly individualized; strategies that work for one person may not work for another. Trying different types of coping skills can help individuals identify the ones that are most beneficial for them.
