In this presentation, chronic pain management will be evaluated in the context of Lifestyle Medicine's emphasis on behavioral change. Specific focus will be given (1) on how new technologies may help patients who need sustained behavioral change for therapeutic benefit, and (2) on the use of behavioral change exercises. Additionally, an overview of the scientific literature on the use of technology in pain management will be given along with models of practical application so that clinicians can use and teach the technology for the benefit of patients who suffer from persistent pain.
