Did you know that there are psychologists who specialize in using psychological methods to teach clients to manage their pain on their own?  

If you are one of the thousands of people who suffer from acute or chronic pain, working with a health psychologist who specializes in pain management might help. At CPA, we offer pain management services including biofeedback training, stress management and reduction training and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Psychological therapy may be part of your pain treatment plan.

When you are in pain, it is natural to feel angry, sad, hopeless, and/or depressed. Pain can alter your personality, disrupt your sleep, and interfere with your work and relationships. But, it doesn’t have to. Psychological treatment provides a safe, non-drug method to treat your pain directly by reducing high levels of physiological stress that often aggravate pain. Psychological treatment also helps improve the indirect consequences of pain by helping you learn how to cope with the problems associated with pain.

A large part of psychological treatment for pain is education, helping sufferers acquire skills to manage a very difficult problem.
