Managing Your Pain

Take charge of your pain

What is persistent pain?
Persistent pain, also known as chronic pain, is pain that lasts beyond the expected period of healing.

What is the Persistent Pain Program?
The Persistent Pain Program at EPA is an individualized program that allows you to take charge of your own pain. It provides answers to your questions about pain and evidence-based strategies to help you overcome it.

There are two components:

  1. PPEP – Persistent Pain Education Program
  2. PGAP – Progressive Goal Attainment Program


Is the persistent pain program for you?
A specific screening process is used to ensure that you are suitable candidate before beginning the program, but the criteria listed below can help you decide if the persistent pain program is for you:

Persistent Pain Education criteria:

  • Pain for 12 weeks or longer; OR
  • Pain for 6 weeks or longer and currently off of work or having difficulty performing day-to-day activities due to pain


Progressive Goal Attainment criteria:
