Episode7 Staying on Track


Introduction

This episode is all about keeping on track to help maintain improvements in pain management. The key to staying on track lies in your continued use of coping strategies that you find helpful. It requires staying focussed and effort, and it is important to remember that most people with chronic pain can expect some set-backs or pot-holes on their journey.

What is important is how you react and cope with these set-backs. The good news is once you get on track, staying on track gets easier and easier as you persist.

We would encourage that you take a break after completion of each episode, spend some time, maybe a week in between, working on the skills you have learnt, before going onto the next episode in the series.
