“If you don’t think every day is a good day, just try missing one.” ~Cavett Robert

The secret of having a positive attitude is not a new concept when it comes to dealing with chronic conditions, especially pain management.

There have been numerous research studies showing over and over that those with a positive attitude have a greater response to treatments, report lower pain scores and show increase in function compared to those that do not.

This is often difficult to maintain when dealing with chronic pain, which can often be debilitating.

A positive attitude is a tool you must have in your tool box when dealing with chronic pain.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference. ~Winston Churchill.
