According to the Institute of Medicine, over 100 million adults in the United States suffer from chronic pain. The American Academy of Pain Medicine reports that chronic pain affect more Americans than diabetes, heart disease, and cancer combined.*

Chronic pain is often accompanied by other emotional or psychological factors. Psychological treatment can help in many cases to deal with emotions or behaviors which typically accompany the pain, often times either aiding in coping with the pain itself, or even in some instances reducing the intensity of the pain.*   

Pica & Associates provides individual Chronic Pain Therapy to address the emotional health and physical health issues that may contribute to chronic pain symptoms. Our experienced therapists can help to work through both the physical and mental aspects of pain management.
