More and more research has come to the forefront indicating that psychological counseling can be helpful in treating individuals with pain, including back pain, neck pain, and pain associated with other personal injuries. With a focus on the mind and the way the brain works, those living with long-lasting pain in South Dakota may be comforted and treated through counseling. While we don’t want you to give up on your necessary medical treatment, you may consider psychological counseling along with your medical treatment to remedy pain associated with a South Dakota motor vehicle accident, a work-related accident, or a slip and fall.

A Sioux Falls personal injury lawyer explains how psychological counseling can help treat a catastrophic personal injury.

Psychological counseling uses techniques such as:

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy which teaches a patient to cope with the pain
  • Relaxation techniques to help deal with emotional stress that increases pain
  • Hypnosis to help a patient focus on inner-thinking and healing, including putting the patient in a deep state of relaxation

Chronic pain, including back pain, can have a lasting emotional impact on a person. If recommended, psychological counseling can be a part of a multi-disciplinary approach to dealing with your pain.
