Chronic Pain Self-Management Program
The Chronic Pain Self-Management Program was developed for people who have a primary or secondary diagnosis of chronic pain. Pain is defined as being chronic or long term when it lasts for longer than 3 to 6 months, or beyond the normal healing time of an injury. Examples of chronic pain conditions are chronic musculo-skeletal pain, fibromyalgia, whiplash injuries, chronic regional pain syndromes, chronic pelvic pain, post-surgical pain that lasts beyond 6 months, neuropathic pain, or neuralgias, post stroke pain, persistent headache, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome, diabetic neuropathy, or those who experience severe muscular pain due to conditions such as multiple sclerosis. The program is led by trained and certified peers with first-hand experience. We discuss dealing with frustration, fatigue, isolation, poor sleep, appropriate exercise, appropriate use of medications and much more. The information provided has been reviewed by professionals who are experts on the subject.
