Pain is a physical sensation that accompanies many injuries and diagnoses; it also has psychological and emotional elements.

Pain, especially chronic, can lead to feelings of anger, helplessness and anxiety. Therapy can help to understand the thoughts, emotions and behaviours that accompany pain and can help to reduce the intensity of the pain. Are you considering therapy for chronic pain?

You may want to consider the following:

  • Are you struggling to sleep or feel rested as a result of your pain?
  • Do you find that your pain is creating symptoms of depression or anxiety?
  • Are your feelings of frustration or anger increasing?
  • Do you find that the pain is all you can focus on and that it is impeding your ability to live your life?
  • Are you finding it difficult to manage stress in your daily life? (Stress can lead to an increase in feeling pain)

Working with our therapist, who has experience with chronic pain, a thorough exploration of your history will occur. Determining  your medical history along with your psychological and emotional needs is important in determining your treatment plan moving forward to help to manage your pain. Our Edmonton therapists for depression can also help you manage or treat any depression or anxiety that accompanies your chronic pain.

Working with your therapist at Reframed, you will learn:

  • Relaxation techniques and mindfulness strategies.
  • Your beliefs about pain and how to change them to be more adaptive.
  • New coping skills.
