- Discover the benefits that cognitive therpies can offer
Patients will learn coping and managing skills for their pain and will be able to practice these skills between sessions. These skills serve to decrease anxiety, and decrease pain levels both indirectly and directly. Patients can problem-solve together about impediments to suing the techniques. For example, if one person reports difficulty in finding time to practice the techniques, others can share how they manage to do this. Patients also can share variations of the exercises they have developed on their own and find more helpful.
A group program is often adjunct to individual work, where a patient's personal situation can be explored in more detail. We believe group therapy is a vital component of a comprehensive treatment plan to help patients decrease their pain and reclaim their lives.
This group is taught by a board certified, fellowship trained pain managment provider who has extensive experience in complex and chronic pain disorders as well as mental health conditions.
