But for people living with chronic pain, a daily, multi-week program is compelling if it can help them return to a more active lifestyle.
Established in 2011, the Pain Rehabilitation Center at Mayo Clinic's Florida campus offers a robust and integrated three-week outpatient program for adults affected by chronic pain and symptoms. A team of health care professionals, including doctors trained in pain management and pain psychology, physical and occupational therapists, biofeedback specialists, nurses and dietitians, teach strategies and techniques to improve function and quality of life. Treatment includes, but is not limited to, physical reconditioning, monitored medication reduction, and behavioral changes.
Seven graduates from the program recently shared their thoughts and advice on the program and offered insight for others coping with pain into the unique model of care offered at the center.

The Pain Rehabilitation Center program is open to patients within the U.S. and abroad.
