Pain Tools

A series of twelve videos and tools designed and developed by The Pain Toolkit's Pete Moore to help you learn and understand self pain management.

01 Acceptance

Accept that you have persistent pain and then begin to move on

Acceptance is the first and the most important tool in your pain self management toolkit.

Acceptance is not about giving up but recognising that you need to take more control with regards to how you can better self manage your pain.

Acceptance is also a bit like opening a door - a door that will open to allow you in to lots of self managing opportunities. The key that you need to open this door is not as large as you think. All you have to do is to be willing to use it and try and do things differently.

Acceptance is I think the most difficult tool in the toolkit. Is was for me back in my pain days. But once I accepted pain was going to be an unwanted visitor in my life, things started to change for me. I stopped doctor/therapy shopping and began to take on board the pain management skills I'd learnt on the pain management programmeand haven’t looked back since. Pete Moore, The Pain Toolkit
