This is the culturally sensitive French translation of Living a Healthy Life with Chronic Pain 

People with chronic pain face challenges every day. 

This book is designed to help you manage your pain so that you can get on with living a satisfying, fulfilling life.

Chronic pain includes many types of conditions from a variety of causes.

Despite these differences, all readers of this book have one very important thing in common — you are living with pain every day.

To help you discover strategies and skills that will make a difference, this book emphasizes four concepts:

1.    Each person with chronic pain is unique. There is no one treatment or approach that is right for everybody.

2.    There are a number of things you can do to feel better. These things will not eliminate pain, but they will help you to better manage pain, and help you to become more active and more involved in life. 

With knowledge and experimentation, you are the best judge of which self-management tools and techniques are best for you.

4.    The responsibility for managing your chronic pain day-to-day rests with you, not anybody else. Many people can be of help to you — your family and friends, your health care team. But, in the end, the responsibility for self-management is yours.

Acknowledging that overcoming chronic pain is a daily challenge, this book provides you with the self-management tools to help you meet that challenge. 

Also available in SPANISH: Vivir una vida sana con dolor crónico
