Pain Psychology

Make Appointments & Get Care


It is difficult for anyone without personal experience to understand the full impact of chronic pain. Persistent pain limits the ability to fulfill responsibilities at work, home, and in the community, disrupting routines and creating multiple stressors. Fewer opportunities to engage in pleasurable and meaningful activities and the resulting isolation are some reasons why depression and anxiety are so common with chronic pain. Over time, patients and their families may become worn down both physically and emotionally and feel that chronic pain is taking over their lives.

UR Medicine's Approach

Behavioral and cognitive therapies with our clinical psychologists include bio-feedback, hypnosis, and relaxation therapy. This is an integral part of pain management because chronic pain is a disabling disease and affects the person as a whole. These services are very important and very effective in improving the quality of life for patients.
