According to the Institute of Medicine, an estimated 100 million U.S. adults suffer from chronic pain.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has emerged as the front line treatment for this debilitating condition. CBT can help you examine thoughts about your chronic pain that may be exacerbating the condition. We understand the frustration and hurt that comes with coping with chronic problems. However, many times our problems become two-fold when we begin to think negatively about this condition and our ability to handle it.
CBT helps you identify thoughts behind this "second layer" of stress, equips you with skills necessary to change your relationship to your pain, relax your mind and body, and learn to cope in effective ways.
