Use these five goals for assessing the effectiveness of your personal pain plan.

How do you know how well a pain plan is working? Like the plan itself, it’s very individual. And since most chronic pain never fully goes away, few plans ever reach perfection.

Here are some reasonable goals to strive for:

  • Decrease in pain
  • Improvement in mood and day-to-day functioning, well-being, and quality of life
  • Minimal side effects from treatment
  • Staying out of the hospital
  • Ability to return or continue to work
