Twelve Strategic Personal Action Steps for Medication Management for Chronic Pain

First of all, I want to emphasize that the information that follows can be used by anyone who wants to avoid prescription medication abuse or addiction problems, not just those already in recovery. Nonetheless, during my work with people since 1984, I have seen far too many relapse because of poor medication management plans. Please watch my Video Blog below and then read the remainder of this post.

Non-Medication Based Tips For Managing Chronic Pain Flare Ups

Below I’ll give you some simple tips for managing pain flare ups. But first I want to explain what I mean by a pain flare up. If you’re living with chronic pain it’s crucial to learn to learn how to manage your pain flare ups—Sometimes called recurrent acute pain. It is important to determine what your base line of pain is, based on a 1-10 pain scale. For some of you this may be levels 2-3, for others 4-5 and others may even be at 5-6. This is the level of pain you experience pretty much every day. Recurrent episodes are acute pain flare ups that might go as high as a level 7-8 (or higher) on that pain scale. These acute episodes are usually brief—anywhere from a few minutes to an hour or so in most cases.

Understanding People Suffering With Chronic Pain And Coexisting Disorders

This past year I’ve been helping several agencies implement my Addiction-Free Pain Management® System into their programing. The past several years have led to more and more people understanding that the prescription pain medication problem is really spiraling out of control. There are many reasons for this but a big one I’m concerned about is people living with chronic pain not receiving appropriate treatment interventions and end up with a substance abuse problem as a result. Please watch my Video Blog below and then read the remainder of this post.
