How you can move away from a persistent pain cycle

Your pain may be difficult to understand and manage on a daily basis. Your healthcare professionals such as a GP, nurse, psychologist or physiotherapist will talk to you about managing your pain with medications, exercises and other treatment options. They can also support you with self-management activities like mindfulness and relaxation practices.
