  1. Identify your pain
  2. Talk to your doctor about treatment, medication and/or potential physical/chiropractic/aquatic and other therapies
  3. Explore pain self-management tools that can help reduce healthcare costs
  4. Consider joining a support group to learn more about your pain and share with others who are facing similar challenges
