    Tools to Manage Pain

    Tools to Manage Pain

    Not all pain is the same. In fact, there are several different types of pain that can affect us differently — physically, emotionally, mentally. Knowing which type of pain you’re experiencing is the key to effectively treating the pain.
    For Pain Awareness Month this September, we’re featuring a two-part series podcast on pain in which we first explored the different types of pain people with arthritis may experience. In this, the second part of the series, we hear from a psychologist who specializes in pain about the brain’s role in pain and some strategies to reduce and control it. We also are joined by a rheumatologist who discusses some medications and practices you can keep in your toolbox to manage the type of pain you may be experiencing.
