Managing Pain (Haga clic aquí para recursos de manejo del dolor en español)

These tools can be helpful to individuals who are attempting to manage their pain.  Pain can be associated with many chronic health conditions, and can sometimes come as a result of how multiple chronic health conditions interact.  Individuals with chronic health conditions may overlook or “work through” symptoms of pain in order to manage other aspects of their health.
