#116 Avoid the pain pitfalls

Ooooooh, I wish someone had told me about the most common pain pitfalls in the beginning of my patient career... This article on Today health MSNBC says exactly what I wanted to say, so I'm just reposting part of the text and adding the link:

"One major shift in thinking is that chronic pain is now believed to be a disease, not a symptom, and that treating pain is about not simply targeting the source but treating the whole person. Like heart disease or other chronic conditions, there’s no magic bullet, so you need to draw on a number of approaches, from exercise and medication to relaxation techniques and talk therapy."
