Managing pain without an Rx
What if you don’t want medication for pain?
Do you have chronic pain due to fibromyalgia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), headaches, back, neck, or joint pain, or even post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)? If you would rather not treat your pain with medication, The Pain Project might be the answer for you.
The Pain Project is a group of passionate chronic pain and behavioral therapists based in Arizona. They have made it their mission to improve people’s ability to self-manage their chronic pain and reduce the need for opioids. The Pain Project also has an online portal where you and others with chronic pain can provide support for one another. Those who care for people with chronic pain can also connect to the online portal for support.
You will “see” a pain therapist through video chat. This therapist will use mindfulness, talk therapy and community treatment to help you learn how you can help yourself. By using the skills you learn, you will feel better and be able to do more. These skills will also decrease your opioid use and the need for doctor visits or visits to the hospital for pain.
