From Pain Games To Goals
It is well into 2015, take a moment and reflect.
If you make resolutions for this year, what were they?
Are you maintaining them?
Resolutions really break down to goals about how we want to live our lives better. If you suffer from chronic pain then you may be currently seeking a goal of getting on the track of pain management.
Healing, living, loving, being, and doing: these are the primary interests of people managing their pain. Chronic pain can prevent us from doing some of these everyday elements of life. It is important to have goals in mind when you are beginning your path in Pain Management.
Goals are person-specific.
The importance of setting goals is clear: it gives everyone a direction in which to go and by which success can be measured. People suffering from chronic pain often have tremendous difficulty communicating their wants, needs and desires to others. In most cases, the experience of pain is a signal that is no longer based on injury. The focus of pain management is, therefore not to cure our pain. It is to heal, in the greater sense of the word.
It doesn’t matter where we start with goals; it just matters that we start.
We can help you achieve your goals, you are not alone!
