Therapy

Most people with chronic pain do not have mental health problems. However, some people can realise that they are becoming depressed & anxious.

The symptoms often pass; however, they may lead to more serious mental & emotional health conditions in the future.

If you’re contemplating chronic pain counselling, we offer different modes of counselling, including cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) & longer-term Psychotherapy.

These modes of regular pain counselling may not only get relief from your chronic pain, but you may find that you feel generally more content with your life as well.

Our treatment plans focus on helping you think more clearly & gain a purpose.

Mental Health

Psychological pain is a big part of chronic pain, including anxiety about current and potential discomfort, insomnia, depression, suicidal thoughts, and grief.

It is essential to know that this is all normal. It’s also necessary to make sure you address these feelings.

Because chronic pain is very complex—it includes biological, psychological, and emotional components—all of these factors must be managed to treat your pain effectively.

Psychotherapy, in particular, as part of a pain management plan, can help you with any thoughts, feelings, and behaviours related to their chronic pain; for example, inactive individuals may find their pain increasing because they are deconditioned.

General Information

Define Chronic Pain

What is chronic pain?

Chronic pain is pain that lasts for over three months. The pain can always be there, or it may come and go. It can happen anywhere in your body.

Chronic pain can interfere with your daily activities, such as working, having a social life and taking care of yourself or others. It can lead to depression, anxiety and trouble sleeping, worsening your pain. This response creates a cycle that’s difficult to break.

What’s the difference between chronic pain and other pain?

Chronic pain differs from another type of pain called acute pain. Acute pain happens when you get hurt, such as experiencing a simple cut to your skin or a broken bone. It doesn’t last long and goes away after your body heals from whatever caused the pain. In contrast, chronic pain continues long after you recover from an injury or illness. Sometimes it even happens for no apparent reason.

Where do people have chronic pain?

Chronic pain can come in many different forms and appear across your body. Common types of chronic pain include:

  • Arthritis, or joint pain.
  • Back pain.
  • Neck pain.
  • Cancer pain near a tumor.
  • Headaches, including migraines.
  • Testicular pain (orchialgia).
  • Lasting pain in scar tissue.
  • Muscle pain all over (such as with fibromyalgia).
  • Neurogenic pain from damage to the nerves or other parts of the nervous system.

How common is chronic pain?

Chronic pain is a prevalent condition and one of the most common reasons someone seeks medical care. Approximately 25% of adults experience chronic pain.

What causes chronic pain?

Sometimes chronic pain has an apparent cause. You may have a long-lasting illness such as arthritis or cancer that can cause ongoing pain.

Injuries and diseases can also cause changes to your body, leaving you more sensitive to pain. These changes can stay in place even after you’ve healed from the original injury or disease. Something like a sprain, a broken bone or a brief infection can leave you with chronic pain.

Some people also have chronic pain unrelated to an injury or physical illness. Healthcare providers call this response psychogenic pain or psychosomatic pain. It’s caused by psychological factors such as stress, anxiety and depression. Many scientists believe this connection comes from low blood endorphin levels. Endorphins are natural chemicals that trigger positive feelings.

It’s possible to have several causes of pain overlap. You could have two different diseases, for example. Or you could have something like migraines and psychogenic pain together.

Pain

What does chronic pain feel like?

People with chronic pain describe their pain in many different ways, such as:

  • Aching.
  • Burning.
  • Shooting.
  • Squeezing.
  • Stiffness.
  • Stinging.
  • Throbbing.

Chronic pain often leads to other symptoms and conditions, including:

  • Anxiety.
  • Depression.
  • Fatigue, or feeling overly tired most of the time.
  • Insomnia or trouble falling asleep.
  • Mood swings.

How is chronic pain diagnosed?

Pain is considered to be chronic if it lasts or comes and goes (recurs) for more than three months. Pain is usually a symptom, so your healthcare provider needs to determine what’s causing your pain, if possible. Pain is subjective — only the person experiencing it can identify and describe it — so it can be difficult for providers to determine the cause.

If you have long-lasting pain, see your healthcare provider. Your provider will want to know:

  • Where your pain is.
  • How intense it is, on a scale of 0 to 10.
  • How often does it occur?
  • How much it’s affecting your life and work.
  • What makes it worse or better.
  • Whether you have a lot of stress or anxiety in your life.
  • Whether you’ve had any illnesses or surgeries.
