Behavioral & Psychological Techniques
A key element in the treatment of acute and chronic conditions is how patients perceive and react to their pain. The stress and effort of dealing with pain can produce a magnifying effect that can actually worsen their discomfort, reducing the effectiveness of other treatments and further impacting their quality of life. But through behavior and psychological pain-management therapy, patients can develop coping strategies to help them change their body’s response to pain.
At the Pain Center, we know that pain can affect not only a person's ability to participate in and enjoy everyday activities but also their physical and emotional welfare. And we understand that effectively supporting the emotional and psychological well-being of our patients has a direct impact on their capacity to manage their pain. Our expert team of board-certified physicians, specialists, and nurse practitioners use innovative behavior and psychological techniques in combination with more traditional medical treatments, procedures, and therapies to provide a personalized, comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to pain management.
The Pain Center offers a variety of behavior and psychological therapies, including:
- Cognitive behavioral therapy
- Stress-management techniques
- Group therapy
- Family counseling
- Management of mood disorders
Patients dealing with chronic pain often feel overwhelmed by their pain, and these behavior and psychological therapies can help patients manage and control their pain and get them back to leading active, productive and rewarding lives. Our patients receive care in a comfortable, nurturing environment, where they can focus on restoring their emotional well-being and be actively engaged in their own treatment and recovery.
