Also, do chronic pain patients have rights?

Because chronic pain is complex and individual, it can be difficult and costly to treat, meaning many chronic pain patients do not receive adequate medical care. Chronic pain patients have a legitimate – and often debilitating – medical condition and have a right to medically appropriate pain treatment.

Similarly, what is uncontrolled pain? Intractable pain refers to a type of pain that can't be controlled with standard medical care. Intractable essentially means difficult to treat or manage. This type of pain isn't curable, so the focus of treatment is to reduce your discomfort. The condition is also known as intractable pain disease, or IP.

  3. Meditation with guided imagery.
  4. Mindfulness.
