Alphamale1 and Kitty gave great answers. Pain is different for everyone, and does not respond similarly across the board. I have met many others with Chronic pain at different pain clinics across western Canada. You need to discover what helps you the most and rely on that while trying to find other alternatives through trial and error. Tens, mirror therapy, physical therapy, and biofeedback were the traditional treatment options available at most clinics, but there are plenty of other options as well like acupuncture, chiropractors, heat therapy, nerve blocks ect. You need a good pain doctor on your side, they’ll be trying everything on you to find out what works or not.
