Psychological Evaluation & Treatment for Chronic Pain

Pain is the most prevalent of the ten principal reasons for emergency department visits. At least 116 million U.S. adults are burdened by chronic pain.

Pain has biological, psychological, and social components, and effective treatments must address all three of these aspects.

For those patients dealing with chronic pain, treatment plans are individually designed. The individualized plan often involves teaching relaxation techniques, building new coping skills, changing old beliefs about pain, and addressing any anxiety or depression which may accompany your pain.
