Pain Management Program (PMP)
What is a pain management program (PMP)?

A pain management program or PMP helps patients with chronic pain bring their symptoms under control. It consists of interdisciplinary methods that enable patients to better cope with chronic pain, allowing them to live fuller, more active lives. Pain management programs are facilitated by medical professionals, but patients are encouraged to take an active role in their own treatment.

What are the typical symptoms of people who choose a pain management program?

People who explore pain management programs are those who suffer from chronic physical pain but have had little success with other pain management treatments. Chronic pain sufferers may also be experiencing mood disorders such as depression and anxiety as a consequence of their condition.

What are the benefits of a pain management program?

A pain management program is not just designed to provide immediate but short-term relief through analgesic medication. It also empowers chronic pain sufferers by improving their own coping skills through a range of treatments that address both physical and cognitive pain symptoms.

Physical therapy, for example, can help patients build their tolerance to physical activity and increase their level of functioning in their day to day lives. For some patients, something as simple as getting out of bed without considerable pain may seem impossible. These patients will not only enjoy the improved strength and flexibility from exercise; they also regain a sense of control over their own environment. On the practical side, this also reduces the strain on their caregivers.

Psychological treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) are equally important, as pain signals are first and foremost processed in the brain. A constant sense of suffering can take its toll on a patient’s thinking, moods, emotional engagement, and by extension, personal relationships. The pain gets worse. Cognitive therapy can change how patients perceive their pain, allowing them to develop better coping mechanisms and even reducing pain signals at the hormonal level.
