When a person suffers from chronic pain, or when their mental health state affects the way they perceive pain, behavioral therapy may help.
Behavioral therapy is another way to help feel better and handle the mental health challenges that can be a part of having pain. It consists of individual or group counseling, meditation, or even yoga. These practices can help a patient work through the depression, fear, and anxiety associated with chronic pain or can help a patient control pain through relaxation, deep breathing, and mild forms of stretching and exercise, like yoga. Depression is extremely common in patients who suffer with chronic pain as both their function and quality of life have diminished.
