While acute pain is effectively reduced with pharmacological agents, chronic pain remains challenging to treat. Chronic pain is not a simple extension of acute pain - the mechanisms differ and so must the treatments. Non-pharmacological interventions such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and exercise have substantial efficacy for the management of chronic pain. In this chapter, we discuss the types of exercise and CBT interventions possessing the strongest evidence of efficacy for chronic pain treatment and provide practical suggestions for integrating them into practice.
