The cycle of pain

The Cycle of Pain illustrates the problems that often happen when you live with pain. It is very common for one problem to lead to another, trapping you in a constant ‘vicious cycle’. It can make you feel that things just continue to get worse and worse.

The Pain Toolkit resource may also be a helpful starting point.

Many people with pain have found ways to help themselves with these issues. It is possible to break or change this cycle of how pain controls your life.
