All patients should be engaged in active management of their pain. Because chronic pain affects the whole person (body, mind, and spirit), patient-centered nonpharmacologic therapies that acknowledge the patients’ roles in their own healing processes have the potential to provide more efficient and comprehensive chronic pain management. Active self-care therapies allow for a more diverse, patient-centered treatment of complex symptoms, promote self-management, and are relatively safe and cost-effective.
