If you are like many people you may be suffering from chronic pain. I'm Isabelle Simon your personal and workplace wellness consultant and today we are going to learn what is coping with chronic pain? Chronic pain is when you have pain that is coming back and coming back and coming back. It doesn't have to necessarily be all over the body. It can be one particular spot in the body and understanding where it is coming from and the source, the cause will help you in understanding what coping with the pain means. It can become, sorry, come from an injury that you had or some repetitive motions that you are doing that are causing that chronic pain and so understanding the skills to cope with this will mean that you will also need to understand where this pain is coming from and coping skills for chronic pain can include a lot of different strategies. It can include making sure that you drink sufficient water, that you stay hydrated and if you don't know already the right amount of water intake per person is your take your body weight, you divide this in half and that is how many ounces of water that you need to drink. So if you are 150 pounds you will need to drink 75 ounces of water, that can be a coping skill for chronic pain. It could be also making sure that you breath properly. A lot of us when we are in pain we go...and we stop breathing and the oxygen is not flowing properly so it actually increases the pain. Another coping skill can be making sure that you are properly fed, that you have the proper nutrients. Many people utilize Omega 3 supplements or also glucosamine supplements. That can be a coping method for chronic pain and if worse comes to worse I would advise you to go and see a specialist like a chiropractor or massage therapist who can help you find more coping skills and so today we learned what is a coping skill for chronic pain and I hope that you have learned a couple of things today. I'm Isabelle Simon your wellness consultant.
