SAN RAMON, Calif., Feb. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pain is the body's way of telling the brain that something is wrong. But what if those signals never stop? Compared to acute pain, which often has a cause that can be treated, chronic pain is less understood. It may not be easy to pinpoint a cause or find effective treatment. Instead, it often takes a comprehensive approach involving doctors, physical therapists, mental health professionals, and sometimes more out-of-the-box approaches. Financial Education Benefits Center (FEBC) acknowledges the difficulties of dealing with chronic pain and offers a variety of health and wellness benefits that can help members be proactive about treatment.

"Pain isn't something that should get in the way of living a satisfying life," said Jennifer Martinez, Manager at FEBC. "But that can happen when you're in pain all the time and nothing seems to help. Sometimes, that negative outlook might be the first thing that needs to change."

Chronic pain, while bad enough on its own, often goes hand in hand with depression and isolation. In fact, about one-third to three-quarters of people who experience chronic pain also experience depressive symptoms. Experts often recommend starting with treatment for depression, not only because feelings of hopelessness that often accompany depression make it especially difficult to be proactive about pain treatment, but also because depression uses some of the same neurotransmitters as chronic pain, making pain treatment less effective.

Treating chronic pain may require a comprehensive approach, including addressing depression and other psychological factors. While some patients may try to treat their pain using medication like Percocet and Valium, those drugs can lead to worse pain and addiction. Instead, individuals experiencing chronic pain may be encouraged to try physical therapy or even alternative methods like acupuncture, meditation, massage, or tai chi.

Treatment looks different for each person, but according to a study, simply taking action to manage their pain helps individuals find relief. FEBC members have access to benefits that can help them on that path, including discounts on alternative medicine and access to doctors or nurses online or by phone.

"We want our members to live life to the fullest, and for those with chronic pain, that can be hard," said Martinez. "However, we hope that our benefits will make it a little easier, no matter where they are in pain treatment."
