Restrictions and Vocational Rehabilitation
People with chronic pain must accept their body the way it is. Then we can improve.
Learning How to Listen and Respond to Pain
Pain is an important way the body talks to you. The better you listen, the less loudly the body transmits the pain. Approach pain carefully and gently. Forgive your body for the suffering you feel and work out how to reduce the demand placed on your body’s painful areas.
Restricting and Retooling: Moving Towards a Pain Free Life
- Restrict activities that make your pain worse. If your livelihood in in conflict with this, change livelihoods using vocational rehabilitation.
- Some people need to go on disability or get help from their families while they ‘retool’ to engage fruitful activities that do not cause themselves more pain.
