Millions of people throughout the world experience chronic pain. A survey performed in Canada reports that nearly 20% of Canadian adults 18 years of age and older experience chronic pain, with half of those respondents having suffered with it for 10 years or longer.
Patients dealing with chronic pain require a special counseling approach that can be applied universally, no matter what the source of their pain may be, or how long they have tried to deal with the pain. The Family Psychology Place offers individual and group therapy treatments to help patients manage their chronic pain in Calgary.
Having to deal with chronic pain on a daily basis can lead to the development of other disorders, as well. Many chronic pain patients experience symptoms of depression or elevated stress levels, anxiety, or a “catastrophic mindset”, which is the belief that if anything can possibly go wrong, it most definitely will.
