Mistakes Made by Chronic Pain Patients

A guide for chronic pain patients to help them avoid pitfalls and mistakes and become part of the team in helping to restore a better quality of life for themselves.

There is no doubt that entering the world of chronic pain is a confusing and difficult process. Often patients do not understand the basics of pain management approaches to long-term care. However, helping patients to become aware of various potential problems and mistakes ahead of time, will allow them to respond differently and learn how to become part of the pain management team. This guide is intended for the physician to give to their patients as they start treatment for their chronic pain problems. Knowledge is power and helps to reduce what may appear to the health care providers as ‘resistance’ on the part of the patient.

Louisiana and New York state have the highest amount of narcotics use in workers’ compensation cases among the 25 states included in a recent study.
