You are not alone! Chronic pain is a very common health problem. You and your primary care team are partners in treating your pain. It is important to have open and regular contact for this partnership to work. The goal of treating chronic pain is to improve function so you can get back to doing daily activities. You and your provider team will talk about how you are doing on daily activities and then create an individual treatment plan to help you reach your goals. It is important to understand that most chronic pain doesn’t completely go away, but there are many treatments to help you to manage it and live a full life.
There are many ways to manage your pain. Some of these treatments are medicines, and some are not. Most people find that using a combination of methods works best.
