As you use the resources available through this website, remember that people experience pain in many ways. Those with chronic pain should work with their health care providers to develop strategies that work best for them.
Pain management works best as a collaborative effort, involving professionals, informed patients, who actively participate in self-management of pain, and their families, who can provide additional support.
