Chronic pain and chronic health conditions are common. Somewhere between 11 – 40 percent of the population in the U.S. deal with chronic pain conditions, according to the CDC. The Cleveland Clinic defines chronic pain as “pain that lasts months or years and happens in all parts of the body. It interferes with daily life and can lead to depression and anxiety. The first step in treatment is to find and treat the cause. When that isn’t possible, the most effective approach is a combination of medications, therapies, and lifestyle changes.” Can EMDR therapy help the population that suffers from chronic pain? Find out what this issue’s authors say about EMDR therapy and chronic pain.
