Managing chronic pain after spinal cord injury
Abstract: This video is the first in a two-part series. In part one, two presenters provide information on chronic pain, a common, often difficult to treat problem for individuals living with spinal cord injury (SCI). They discuss the different types, causes, and potential treatment options for chronic pain; talk about medications, surgical options, injections, pumps, massage, and other treatments; offer different self-management strategies for decreasing and coping with chronic pain, including relaxation, pacing, and hypnosis; and share resources for self-management. Audience questions are answered at the end of the forum. Run time: 1 hour 6 minutes 33 seconds. Part two is available under accession number O19713.
