Back to Life: Managing Your Pain is a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program (CBT) designed specifically for patients with chronic pain. In 10 weekly sessions, clients will learn specific methods for controlling pain, how to stop the downward spiral of increasing emotional distress and impaired daily functioning and how to stop the negative thoughts, interpretations, beliefs and attitudes which contribute to their pain.
In numerous clinical studies, CBT has been shown to be highly effective in managing pain and improving the client’s ability to function. The traditional view of chronic pain was that it was a symptom of an underlying physical ailment or pathology. However this view neglected the powerful influence that beliefs, attitudes, negative interpretations, mood, anxiety and behavior had on the experience and perpetuation of pain.
