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