New information shows us that when people understand how pain works, they have less pain. It’s our brains that create the pain we feel--not our bodies--which makes sense when we realize that our brains control all of the things that we feel and do. When we understand pain better, we do a better job of knowing how we can help ourselves and our health care providers.
Providence Persistent Pain program provides the information, tools and resources you need to live with less pain and return to the things you enjoy. We offer community classes, videos and written material to help you understand and reduce your pain.
