Setting Goals in Pain Management


Setting goals in pain management will help you progress toward wellness.

If you’re experiencing chronic pain, setting goals in pain management will help you on your journey to finding wellness.

How ambitious should your goals be? Here’s a heartening story about MB, who suffered from the pain of ovarian cancer last year. She’s a mountain climber, and her goal was to climb the tallest peaks in the world (called climbing the Seven Summits), until her cancer diagnosis.

With help from her team of physicians, she achieved her goal and climbed all the tallest peaks in the world. She was unable to summit to the top of Mt. Everest however, due to extreme weather conditions.

Climbing the Seven Summits represented not only a #PhysicalChallenge but also was a symbol of resilience, determination, and conquering obstacles for MB. For patients dealing with chronic pain, this goal can serve as a powerful source of motivation and hope. It provides a reason to push through the pain, adhere to treatment plans, and commit to the rehabilitation process.

Having an inspiring goal does not have to be as ambitious and inspiring as climbing the Seven Summits. Even #SmallGoals can play a profound and motivating role in the life of patients experiencing chronic pain, particularly when beginning treatment with Dr. Rany T. Abdallah, MD PhD MBA.

Dr. Abdallah recognizes the importance of aligning treatment goals with a patient’s personal aspirations. By acknowledging and supporting the patient’s goals, he can tailor a comprehensive #PainManagementPlan that not only alleviates discomfort but also maximizes physical capabilities. This approach empowers the patient to work toward their goal with confidence, ultimately fostering a sense of achievement, improved well-being, and a fulfilling life despite chronic pain.
