We continue our journey! If you haven't listened to part 1 of my chat with Dr. Rachel Zoffness please do so. Today, we dive into practical steps and strategies people can do when they are suffering from pain.
Rachel first talks about the concept of 'Cognitive behavioural therapy' and what you think, affects how we feel emotionally, affects how we feel physically, which affects how you behave.
Next, Rachel discusses some pain-control strategies and relaxation strategies such as mindfulness, body scanning and breathing exercises and explains why this helps reduce pain.
We finish off with the 6 lifestyle tips for better health and reduced pain all from her book the 'pain management workbook'.
