Abstract

Chronic pain (CP) and rheumatoid arthritis (RA) pose a particular challenge for the individual. While biomedicine inevitably plays a role in the reduction or control of some

symptoms for people living with chronic pain, directed self-management is also increasingly recognized as an important tool. Self-management can address pain associated symptoms of CP and RA and often has broader aims, such as promoting positive well-being. Forty-six interviews with people experiencing CP and 46 interviews with those living with RA

associated pain were analysed. Our analysis uncovered three broad strategies adopted by participants: body management, mind management and mind-body management. The analysis

demonstrated that for those living with pain, a sense of well-being is achieved not through pain control alone, but also through various mind/body techniques for managing pain,

accepting new limits, and adjusting the way people relate to themselves. These self management strategies are an important adjunct to biomedical care for those experiencing

chronic pain.
