Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a type of talk therapy that has been found to be

highly effective for the relief of chronic pain, especially when combined with other

treatments. CBT helps individuals change the way that they think about pain. It

teaches them how to eliminate negative thoughts that make it more difficult to cope

with pain and replace these thoughts with more helpful ways of thinking.

Cognitive behavioral therapy also integrates behavioral approaches to help chronic

pain sufferers learn ways to reduce stress, develop relaxation skills and improve sleep.

This successful form of therapy emphasizes the link between thoughts, feelings, and behavior,

and more importantly, it attempts to identify the way that certain thoughts contribute to chronic pain.
