HOW TO MANAGE AND MINIMIZE PAIN FLARE-UPS
Pain flare-ups happen. You can help your patients learn to reduce the chance of a chronic pain flare-up and, if one happens, to minimize the pain. By planning ahead, your patients can better understand how to avoid pain flare-ups and to manage the pain when a flare-up happens.
HOW A PLAN CAN HELP WITH FLARE-UPS
With a flare-up plan, your patients can take control and have options ready to manage and minimize their pain. This plan will help them to learn about their triggers and includes suggestions for their own personal flare-up kit.
