According to WEB MD,the goals of treatment are to reduce chronic pain and increase your ability to function. This includes improving your sleep and coping skills and reducing stress so you can return to your regular activities. Initial treatment depends on what kind of pain you have and how severe it is, as well as whether your pain is related to an illness, injury, or an unknown cause. Often, the best approach is a combination of therapies.

These could include making exercise (such as walking or swimming) a routine part of your life.
Eating a balanced diet and making sure you get enough sleep.Using pain relievers or nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, tryiny complementary therapies, such as acupuncture or meditation.

A licensed mental health counsellor, psychologist, or psychiatrist can help with your emotional well-being while you are dealing with chronic pain. It is common to respond to chronic pain with feelings of frustration, depression, anxiety, fear, and even anger. These feelings can make it tough to conquer chronic pain. Pain affects both your physical and emotional well-being. Untreated depression or anxiety can make your pain worse. For more information on treatments for Chronic Pain head to the Web Md Website
