Chronic pain can be an extremely difficult condition to live with and it can affect our mood, anxiety levels and ability to function. It can sometimes be difficult to pinpoint what is causing the pain, but that does not make it any less real.
Do you suffer from aches and pains that have no apparent cause? Or maybe you suffer from Irritable Bowel Syndrome which causes discomfort and embarrassment on a regular basis. Physical pain can be all consuming when it takes hold, which can cause additional stress and worry and exacerbate the problem.
Reducing the anxiety, low mood and sleep disturbances that often go hand in hand with chronic pain can lessen the impact of pain. It can also re-focus the mind and help your brain to ‘override’ the signals associated with chronic pain.
