Living with neuropathic pain brings many challenges including changes in function, sleep, mood, and quality of life. While exciting basic science work is being carried out, developing effective new medical treatments for neuropathic pain has been challenging for several important reasons. This interactive presentation will discuss practical self-management strategies (and the rationale behind these practices) for managing neuropathic pain, fostering hope, and living a meaningful life.
